Watching the replay, Raburn looks like he probably should have caught that HR ball by Cabrera. It was barely over the top of the wall, but Raburn was a step too far to the right. If he reads the path right, his glove would be up there fighting for the ball with the fans. Wouldn't THAT have been an interesting potential fan-interference call?

Gardy bringing in Nathan in a non-save situation, huh? Don't see that every day!

Yet another great play by Orlando Cabrera to get the double play to end the top of the 9th. That was awesome.

There were just SO many incredible plays made by both teams in these last few innings.

The 09 twins are still my favorite team ever. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw Cuddy running that fast in real time.

Keppel battles back from 3-1 to get the strikeout and bring the game to the bottom of the 12th. What's gonna happen??

I missed it this afternoon, but my DVR is set to record any Twins game. It’s been great to see Mauer behind the plate. And now to see Nathan doing the bpbpbpbpt thing.

I was in class and didn’t get home until like the 8th inning. This was the first time I’ve seen the whole game. There were some great performances/plays along the way.
