I confess, I gave up following this game about the time I walked away from the bar at Famous Dave’s after watching the Vikings end of the game failure. The last I saw, the Twins were down 3-0 and, according to the Twins beat reporters I follow on Twitter, the Twins hadn’t scored a run in something like two years, so I didn’t see much reason to pay attention any longer.

So, imagine my surprise when I hear they scored six late runs and beat the Rays 6-4!

Trevor Plouffe went 3 for 3 and scored a run in the 8th inning, but it would seem to me that Josmil Pinto’s 3-run home run in the 8th is pretty BOD-worthy. – JC
