The Imposable Has Happened
Posted October 6, 2009on:
Two weeks ago the Minnesota Twins trialed The Detroit Tigers by seven games. This past weekend the Twins trialed by only three games needing to win all three games against the Royals to even have a shot to catch the slumping Tigers. With the Tigers losing to the White Sox three times of the four game series the Twins must beat the Royals all three times and they did. The twins did the imposable they overcame a seven game deficit and tied the Tigers to force a playoff game against the Tigers on Tuesday night. The City of Minnesota have had their hands full the past few days with Brett Farve leading Vikings to win over the Packers then Tuesday the Twins play the Tigers in a playoff game that would come down to the wire. With Cabrera and Ordonez hitting home runs for the Tigers and unlikely hero put the Twins up 4 to 3 in the 7th inning. Orlando Cabrera hit a two run home run to put the Twins ahead. However 9 innings wouldn’t be enough to settle this battle. With the Tigers shutting down a late threat in the bottom of the 9th the game would go to extra innings. However a hero who has been there all year long for the Tigers Brandon Inge made a diving play to save the Tigers from losing in the 9th he double to left to score Dan Kelly to put the tigers up in the 10th. But the Twins would threaten the Tigers one last time. With a lead off triple by Michael Cuddyer the Twins would score on a Matt Tolbert single and with one out with runners on first and third the Tigers turn a double play to end the inning. After no threats in the 11th the Tigers loaded the bases in the 12th and the Twins get out of the inning with a huge strike out. Finally in the bottom of the 12th inning the twins scored on a Alexi Casila single and it scored Carlos Gomez. So the twins did the imposable they won the American League Central.
