Twins with a walk-off, Vikes in OT on the same afternoon in Minneapolis. Probably won't see that againi for a while.
Love seeing Morneau crush baseballs like that.

It's nice to see a walk off HR, especially when it is Morneau. I would have been a bit more exciting if Mauer hit a walk off HR, thus completing hitting for the cycle.
Oh well, a great end result either way.
When Morneau was trotting around the bases, I was a bit concerned with the home plate celebration - don't slap Morneau's head! Some did. You have be careful. Morneau is starting to resemble his former self. Punch him in the gut or something - stay away from his noggin.

The Twins page on ESPN has the Elias note that this wasn't the first time Morneau has had a multi-homer game that included one of them being a walk off. In fact it was his THIRD time! That seemed like a pretty rare event and I was quite surprised anyone had done it that often. Turns out, David Ortiz and Todd Helton have also done it three times each. Amazing.
