One red-hot Cincinnati team dropped in on another, and the city’s sports fans rejoiced.
Hours after extending their winning streak to 11 games, Jonathan India and his Cincinnati Reds teammates wore FC Cincinnati jerseys, and India wore the Viking helmet the Reds use to celebrate home runs and raised the sword on the field at TQL Stadium in advance of a 3-0 win against Toronto FC on Wednesday night.
Earlier, the Reds won 5-3 at Great American Ball Park to complete a three-game sweep of the Colorado Rockies and extend their winning streak to 11.
The Reds and FC Cincinnati had about 50,000 fans combined at Wednesday’s home games.
Tweets from both teams, including video starring Reds outfielder TJ Friedl:
