Team: Twins vs. White Sox
Date: September 25, 2008
Announcer: Dick Bremer
In 2008, with six games left in the season, the Twins were behind the White Sox by two and a half games. Fortunately, their last six games were at home, with three against the Sox. They won the first two games of the series to keep their season alive, and one more win against the Sox would put them in first place.
The Sox staked themselves to an early 6-1 lead, which took the wind out of the sails of most Twins fans watching. But they slowly crept back, and were down 6-4 entering the bottom of the 8th. Brendan Harris double to start the frame, and with one out, Carlos Gomez singled to bring the game within one. Up next was Denard Span, and Dick Bremer came through with the call of his career.

This game was the end of a sports movie. Utterly amazing.
It’s…weird to look back and realize that the season was over five days later.
I would have been stunned if this hadn’t been #1. It’s mine as well.
Stupid one-day playoff rule. A coin toss. A fucking coin toss to decide something after 2340 games are played.
Referring to the home field advantage?
Yes. The Twins won the season series but there was an extreme home/away split on both ends.
