Recap: Central Division champs. It has a nice ring to it. It's also great that we won't have a third Game 163 in a row. It's much less stressful. Now all my stress comes from wondering if we'll roll over and die in the playoffs. It was a very exciting game tonight, with the Twins rallying for 4 runs in the 8th to take the lead. Then all the players hung around to watch the A's/White Sox game. The A's finished off the White Sox, with Craig Breslow saving the game for them. I still miss him. 

Thome had 2 hits and another home run in the game, while Valencia, Young, Butera and Span all had 2 hits. Baker did okay in his first start in a while, pitching 5 innings with 2 earned runs. Mijares had some struggles, but Rauch, Perkins and Capps each pitched at least a scoreless inning apiece. Perkins actually got the win. I'm too tired to write anything else right now; I almost just wrote that Perkins got the wind. But go Twins!

Best Moment: Winning the division!

Most Questionable Moment: Poor Dick Bremer, getting beered in the clubhouse after the game.

Worst Moment: I cannot think of anything right now.

Quotations of the Day:

  • "These guys aren't going to let me go home. I had a posse in here telling me we're staying." - Ron Gardenhire
  • "We still have a lot of baseball left. We clinched tonight -- hats go off, we've had a lot of fun -- but the real season starts in [two] weeks." - Orlando Hudson
  • "It says a lot about our organization. We're on a heck of a run here." - Ron Gardenhire
  • "Considering we've been to Game 163 the last couple years, I think this might work out a little bit better for us." - Ron Gardenhire

Suck-Ass Performance of the Game: Jose Mijares (0.2 innings pitched, 4 hits, 2 earned runs). Granted he wasn't helped much with Hudson's misplay.
