Game: Twins vs. Angels
Date: April 17, 2009
Announcer: Dick Bremer
Little did we know in April how important this comeback would be for the final standings. The Twins had not been a high-scoring team in recent years, and when they blew a lead and fell down 8-3 in the 7th, you just figured it was over. Down 9-4 in the 8th, they rallied for 3 runs and had two men out with two out. Morneau was intentionally walked to bring in Jason Kubel. Kubel had already hit a single, double, and a triple at this point in the game. Why, wouldn’t it be poetic if he finished off the Twins comeback by hitting a home run?
This is my second favorite call by Dick Bremer. You can tell he’s as excited as every fan watching. This call begins a string of four that still give me goosebumps every time I hear them.
