Walk-off Win

Gary Gaetti always said don't leave early because you never know what might happen. Those were the first words out of Bert Blyleven's mouth after a great come from behind win tonight. I'll be completely honest and say that I wasn't planning on writing tonight, but after watching the entire game I would have felt guilty not to. There may not be many games like this one!

Down 5-3 with 2 outs in the bottom of the ninth, the Mariners walked the bases loaded. Next up was Denard Span who chopped a ball high off the turf to the third baseman driving in a run and making the game 5-4. The next batter was Alexi Casilla who ripped a line drive to centerfield scoring two runs to win the game 6-5.

As exciting as the Twins win was tonight, it was almost equally as exciting to listen to Dick Bremer have his first baseball orgasm of the season.

Record: 1-1
