The Sickly Taste of Defeat

So... what do you do when you've bit, clawed and sratched your way out of a 3-run deficit once already, and are one run away from doing it for the second time in the game? Keep in mind that this is the division leader you're playing, and that you NEED this game in order to realistically stay in the division race (the wild card race having long since become an unattainable goal).

If you're Justin Morneau, you take 3 strikes with 2 outs and the tying runner on second...

...and thus giving Twins fans everywhere a chance to say for about the 5th time, "That loss killed our playoff chances".

Twins fans everywhere wept in despair...

We still love you, Justin, but that was harsh...
