In addition to a great walk-off win over the San Diego Padres courtesy of Angel Pagan and a fireworks display, the Giants and their fans gave a boisterous show of baseball solidarity. In the eighth inning fans duplicated the Red Sox tradition of singing the Neil Diamond classic “Sweet Caroline.”

Diamond himself is not surprised by the transcendence of his song in the wake of the tragedy.

“In this particular situation, I’d much rather it not have happened than for ‘Sweet Caroline’ to become part of it.” Diamond told the Associated Press, “But it’s obviously offering comfort to people and I feel good about that.”
