A Fan obviously wasn't there to see all the possible story lines. This was just one of them. A typical rags to riches for Avis....gets battered around, makes a mistake but still contributes in a big way. Nothing wrong with that. Phil Anderson was clutch, as was Robert Wickers and Mikey Diekroeger.....Jake Bruml.....everyone contributed. How many teams come from six back heading into the sixth to win in the postseason? Not many. Avis was worthy and it made it more interesting that way.
