- In the bottom of the eighth with two outs & two on, Carlos Gomez swung at the first offering from Ramon Ramirez. After a four-pitch walk. The batter before that walk, Brendan Harris, probably should have walked. Along with Casilla's failed bunt in the 7th, the Twins did as much to help out the Royals in the seventh & eighth as they did to hurt them.
- A fitting farewell for Gil Meche, who kept the Twins down for six innings in the most dramatic game he's pitched in since, I dunno... maybe his first start as a Royal against the Red Sox two years ago.
- John Bale: justifying two years of my irrational support of him now.
Can anybody else absolutely not wait for tomorrow's game?
