The Mountie walks off the Tribe with a 9th inning home run, his second donger of the game, and the Dunce gets a win.
It was quite literally a back and forth affair today. After trailing by 4, the boys came back to take the lead in the 4th only to give it back in the 5th. They scored twice in the 7th and the Indians tied it up in the 8th. Up walks Morneau with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th and promptly rips the first pitch to right for the game winner.
Morneau went 2-4 with 2 homeruns and a walk. Mauer was a homerun short of the cycle going 3-5 with an RBI and 2 runs scored. The only Twins starter not to get a hit was Mastroianni who managed to reach on an error, steal second, take third on a wild pitch and score on Florimon’s bloop single to left…it was a fun little series of events.
Fein pitched 2 scoreless innings, striking out 2.
