4. The Cycle Is Complete

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.

  1. Yeah, this one was epic. My friend was actually at that game – right behind the Twins’ dugout. He said that they considered leaving earlier in the game, but that he figured that he had spent the money on the tickets and should see it through.

    He said the fans didn’t leave for about a half an hour after the game.

  2. Yeah, that call was awesome. Bremer can be called upon for some good wild homerism when the situation calls for it.
