1:26 am
showers. we'll top off well above where we were today, mid 60's. will be cooler and then we warm up another couple of degrees as we go into the day on wednesday. you'll notice we have action in the tropics. while matthew is gone, we have tropical storm nicole with top winds of 60 miles per hour. bermuda under a hurricane watch. take a look at the close to it later wednesday night into early thursday as a category one hurricane. we'll keep close tabs on that. if you have friends or family heading to bermuda, they'll be seeking shelter in the middle part of the week. chilly nights here, mild days warming up tuesday, wednesday, thursday, and behind the cold front with late-day showers on thursday, it will drop, temperatures will, friday and saturday and a little bit of a recovery into the second half of
1:27 am
as it's monday, we always look at next weekend. shelley: thanks very much. what a night at the ballpark. jamie staton joining us live. jamie: two different stories in one. one, you have the underachieving red sox playoff team. and two, you have the emotional, amazing farewell for david ortiz.
1:28 am
>> news 9 sports. >> one emotional farewell for one of the history. news 9 was on the field at fenway park as david ortiz said thank you to the fans with tears in his eyes, he tipped his cap to the crowd. the end of an era, not how he wanted to go out but he got to say thank you one last time in fenway park. the red sox have played well this season, especially at home, but their offense never got it going against the indians this series. they were swept out of the playoffs on their home field
1:29 am
night long and joins us live from inside fenway park with highlights and reaction. jamie? jamie: hi, mike, thank you very much. that was an amazing moment that you played, david ortiz. he can now take his place among the greatest of all time. that video will be played for generations to come. it was really something to behold. not so amazing, however, buchholz, the start for the red sox. top of the fourth, two on for the cleveland rookie. tyler naquin, the single to right brings home jose ramirez, lonnie chisenhall, 2-0, indians. then coco crisp, of all people, launches one over the monster. cleveland up 4-1. the red sox would not go quietly. in the eighth, hanley ramirez
1:30 am
that made it 4-3. and at that point in the eighth inning, david ortiz was pulled for a pinch runner. that appeared to be the final moment the fans would see david ortiz on the baseball field but we already saw what unfolded later after the game. papi exiting, the red sox making noise in the ninth with two men on. but the final out of the game, travis shaw flies out to right and the red sox season ends in hugely disappointingas playoffs by the indians. here's ortiz about that emotional farewell. there's the score board with the red sox losing 4-3. fifth time the indians advance to the alcs. they'll play the blue jays starting friday night. here's ortiz on that emotional goodbye. david: it kind of hit me a little bit. i'm not going to lie to you. like i say, i've been trying to hold my emotions most i can but
1:31 am
that's how we feel about what we do because we love what we do. >> any time you lose a series, it's disappointing. you go along at about 100 miles an hour and suddenly the last out is recorded and you hit the wall and it stops abruptly. that's what we feel right now. jamie: in the bottom of the ninth inning, three straight batters went to 3-2 counts with two outs and the first two managed to fight their way on base but utu shaw could not come through with a fly ball. david ortiz, what a privilege it was to witness that moment. that's the end of the baseball season here at fenway park. jamie staton, news 9 sports. mike c.: thanks, jamie, other playoff action, nationals-dodgers were in a one-run game in the ninth. washington's jayson werth gets all of this one for a crucial insurance run and the nationals win it 8-3, leading the series 2-1.
