"It felt great," O'Brien said. "I was just staying with my approach and try to get something up in that situation, and that's what I got. I got a good pitch."
O'Brien was impressed with the way the RiverDogs battled back from their deficit and turned things completely around in the late innings.
"Even though we were down in the beginning, we have a great bunch of hitters," O'Brien said. "We kept fighting throughout the game, stuck in there, and that is how baseball is played. We definitely have the team to do it. We kept scoring runs after we got on top and that's what you want."
The RiverDogs were far from done, though, adding salt in the Power wound when Dante Bichette Jr. hit an opposite field grand slam with two outs in the eighth inning to give Charleston a commanding 9-4 lead.
The Power looked to be in good shape after scoring four quick runs. Designated hitter Stetson Allie followed up his walk-off home run to give the Power the victory on Sunday by homering again on the first pitch he saw in the second inning Monday night.
Then the Power got some much needed breathing room in the third inning, plating three runs to take a commanding 4-0 lead.
The team sent nine batters to the plate in the key inning with the big blow coming from right fielder Josh Bell, who tripled to clear the bases, scoring Raul Fortunado, Ashley Ponce and Dilson Herrera.
Fortunato led the Power attack with three hits. Herrera also collected a pair of hits.
