So the Twins finally pull one out, albeit in the 9th, and in a pretty unconventional way. I was sitting in front of a few Oriole fans, and after Brian Roberts' sacrifice fly in the top of the 9th, you could hear both the Twins and Orioles fans muttering to agreement that this was yet another close 1-run loss for Minnesota. I tell ya, all you need is a walk, a steal with a bad throw, and then a wild pitch (all in succession) and suddenly things turn around!
Also, if BJ Ryan would have caught that ball, Mauer was out. If Palmeiro could have scooped that throw from Tejada, Jones was out. Truly a game decided by inches.
One last note: I am currently on a 3-game streak of going to games with Jumbotron marriage proposals. Give me a call if you need that extra push of luck.
