Thank You, Joe Crede

Okay, follow along.

Twins get out to an early lead.
Tigers first pound starter Glen Perkins, then start on increasingly useless Luis Ayala. They take the lead in the 6th.
Twins get a triple from Denard Span to put them back in the lead in the 6th.
Tigers get a couple of homeruns and take a two run lead in the 7th.
Jason Kubel ties the game with a 2-run homer in the 8th.
The game stays this way for a while.
Granderson gets a one out triple in the 13th, then startles Jesse Crain into committing a run-scoring balk with two outs. Things look bad.
Jason Kubel gets a single, Punto pinch runs, gets bunted over to second, then scores on a ball that was just barely trapped in the bottom of the 13th.
A couple of walks happen (including a two out intentional walk to Morneau), then Joe Crede hits a walkoff grand slam to win the game?

Epic WGOM game log, epic game. As was posted over yonder by BrainS, "Crede just ceased being an ex-White Sox. He's now a Twin."

  1. I couldn't believe Crain balked Granderson in. Lol. Crazy times in Minnesota!
