Meanwhile, "Fire Flower" was ready after the match on the day when the crowd exceeded 3 million. However, the team failed to revive the mood due to the 11th inning's reversal by allowing a tiebreaking home run by Kenley Jansen in the ninth inning. Moreover, after the end of the game, a nerve battle between Arizona closer Archie Bradley and Dodgers players became a trigger, leading to bench clearing, which led to a spectacular fireworks display in a disorganized atmosphere.
