Did Tom Cruise jinx Giants in NLDS Game 2 loss to Dodgers? originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
There are some Giants fans who believe there was something working against the 2021 NL West champs on this night.
As is the case with most MLB playoff games, celebrities are littered throughout the crowd, and on Saturday, actor Tom Cruise was in attendance.
The “Mission: Impossible” star was shown on the jumbotron in the ballpark and on the TBS broadcast. He declined to say which team he was rooting for, only saying that he is a baseball fan.
After the Giants lost Game 2, some fans blamed Cruise’s appearance for the blowout loss to the Dodgers.
Giants lost cause Tom Cruise showed up to the game 😵💫

Cruise has a home in the Los Angeles area, so it’s very possible he shows up to Game 3 at Dodger Stadium on Monday.
The Giants’ mission, should they choose to accept it, is to overcome the Tom Cruise jinx, however real or imaginary that it might be, and beat the Dodgers two more times.
