Things were looking bleak for the boys today in Houston. Albers got rocked, 1 2/3 innings, 9 hits, 5 runs, and the guys are down early, 3-0 in the first, and then 6-2 in the third.
The Lumber Company unloads.
Plouffe hits his 13th. Colabello hits his fifth. Dozier belts his sixteenth home run of the year. And then Chis Colabello, again, hitting his sixth, and winning the game with a two-out grand slam home run in the top of the ninth.
Twins win, 10-6.
Even in September, with nothing on the line, it doesn’t get any better than this.
