Good weather. Sun. Clouds. Fun.
And sunset was at:
T C Bear and friends showed up on the scoreboard for the 7th Inning Stretch.
But it was in the 9th that things got a little out of hand. You see the Twins were ahead 4-2. Closer Glenn Perkins could not manage to hold the score
and blew the save.
Score tied 4-4 in the bottom of the 9th.
Up comes Brian Dozier.
Fuld and Escobar on base.
Look closely- this was taken just at the moment before the ball and bat connect.
It's a good solid hit.
But there was also a good throw in to the catcher.
Base runner Escobar comes sliding head first.
Note the ball in the picture-
coming toward the catcher showing up in the space
between the mitt and the runner.
Twins Win! 5-4. A great evening.
