oh those "never say die" Twins we have come to love....They are never out of it even though I must admit I, for one never thought they would pull this one out. Way to go Twins!!!!!!

Maybe this is a good omen with all three Minnesota teams winning on the same night. One thing for sure is the yogism of " Its never over til its over" could have never rang truer than last night. I sat there watching and grumbling each time the Twins struck out with runners on base yet never had that feeling they were ever out of it. The wait was worth it to see the comeback. Go Twins!!!

To come from behind and win in the 9th has to be a great morale booster for the team, a win to bring up that confidence level. Being beaten two nights in a row at home to open the season would have been tough to take in the locker room and would have created a lot of pressure for the third game. Now we'll get a chance to see the depth of the Twins' pitching rotation. With Slowey and Perkins coming up, it's not as if the Twins give up anything in any of the start slots, while most teams can expect poorer performances lower in the rotation. Silva can be tough, though. Let's hope that his sinker isn't sinking.

Yes! I can see it now...161-1 for 2009!

Actually, if they can limp through the first month and be above .500, they will win at least 90 games and the division.

Morneau's late season slump is carrying over, Mauer is out for the month (probably), Crede is feeling the pressure, Delmon Young is struggling.....once these guys hit their stride, look out!

What a difference 1-1 makes rather than 0-2. Sometimes teams just cannot get on track and lose tons of grades early and cannot ever really recover; ala Detroit Tigers. So, even though it's one win, it gets the team on track. I liked how much of a team effort this was too. Gardy is good about keeping bench/role players involved.

Silva needs to get run off by the 4th inning tonight! Oh, and maybe a hit from Morneau too!

If that game isn't played in the Dome the Twins would have lost. Denard Span's off the turf grounder to third would have been the last out in anyother ballpark.

Your point is what?

If Blackburn left two pitches down an extra centimeter the Mariners never would have scored a run...if Adrian Beltre would not have swung at pitch #3 he would have never started the scoring...if this...if that...guess what...6-5 final

To all those fans who left after 8 2/3 innings...have some fricken respect for the players and the game. If you want to leave early...thats fine...but do it inbetween innings not when a guy is coming up to bat...how disrespectful that is.

I don't understand it really...you sit there for 8 2/3 and then leave? What so you can get up the stairs faster? Give me a break.

We needed a spark and got one. In baseball and in life it is not a good idea to say if after the fact. Thats what losers do. If only I would have done this or that things would be better. Quit doing that. Winners look back on a mistake and say next time I will do this or that. Big difference. Someone tell Justin that it isn't September..GoGo Twins!!

Gardy is getting too sloppy in his managerial role.

Twins are playing to lose.

We need new fresh eyes to manage this up tempo team.

Seattle lost this game more than the Twins won. With 3 straight walks in the 9th inning one can see how Seattle lost 100 games last year. If the Twins have this hard of a time with the crummier teams, they won't finish above .500 for 2009. Gardy must go. We need a disciplinarian to coach this team if they are going to take the next step.

Your point is what? I PAID money to be at the game, not the other way around. It's supposed to be entertainment, and regardless of whether it's entertaining or not (it wasn't last night) I have the right to leave whenever I want.

Show some respect? These "professionals" haven't posted a World Series showing since 1991. They play baseball for a living and collect millions of dollars.

Give me a break, then get yourself a life.

But we tied for the division last year...according to you everything last year is the same as this year, right? SO that means we should be in the division race. You said since Seattle lost 100 games last year they are bad? We just faced two great pitchers in Hernandez and Bedard...Bedard was right up there with Santana just two years ago...last year he was injured...based on last nights performance for the most part hes back.

Of those 3 walks only one was a 4 pitch walk...and that was an unintentional intentional walk...they didn't want to face Kubel...the others were battles by the hitters...Gomez and Buscher put up great at bats...thats why they were walked...they fought off the tough ones and drew a walk.

Leave early...I dont care but show some respect for your home team and not leave in the middle of an f'ing inning...or better yet...dont come.

I hate it when people who have no idea what they are talking about, get on these threads and pretend they actually know something!
I never call people names, but I came awfully close on this one!

BWAAHAHAHHAHAH....it wasn't entertaining because you left before it was over...did you enjoy that extra 10 minutes of sleep? Apparently you need to give yourself a life as you needed to get back home in time to check in with the wife or it was past your bedtime.
