Twins 7, Tigers 6

Standard

Now that was a Twins game that was fun to come home and catch the end of. (I’m sort of glad that I didn’t get to see yesterday’s 18-5 disaster. In my completely biased and uninformed opinion, I’m confident that the triple play should have stood.)
Today, I turned on the TV and found the local Tigers affiliate when Detroit was up 6-2. But the Twins dribbled back to tie the game up in the 9th. My future husband went 5-5 and hit what should have been called a homerun in the 8th, but had to settle for a double. It turned out to be okay though — Morneau scored on a sacrifice and then hit a homerun (that counted) to win the game in the 11th.
Interestingly enough, I was on the phone with my dad at the end of the game and discovered that, even through whatever delay the phone has, WCCO radio in Minneapolis has about a 3 second jump on FSN Detroit broadcasting in Sault Ste Marie, MI.
It sounds like I’ll be up here for the duration of the weekend — at least there will be baseball to watch!
Edit: Dear Jim Leyland, regarding your Tigers Post Game Interview: It was a four run lead you couldn’t hold on to, not just three.
