Twins pull within a half-game of first place with 10-inning victory over Detroit
September 23, 2020
It's that time of year again, when there's more attention on the out-of-town scoreboard than the game in front of you.
For the Twins, they were focused on the pesky Detroit Tigers, who somehow have punched above their weight class whenever they see a Minnesota uniform this season. But about 750 miles away, Cleveland was headed into extra innings against the White Sox, and losing.
But in the bottom of the 10th inning, Jose Ramirez belted a three-run walkoff homer, meaning the onus was on the Twins to beat Detroit and tighten the race for the AL Central title.
