Minnesota Twins pitcher Michael Pineda took to the mound during the second inning, Thursday, April 15, 2021 at Target Field in Minneapolis.

An emergency siren interrupted Michael Pineda's start on Thursday, and as if summoned by the blare, trouble soon struck the Twins. But perhaps the loud warning paid off, because the Twins managed to avert disaster in the end.

Max Kepler looped a single into shallow center field and Luis Arraez, on base with his fourth hit of the day, raced around third base and belly-flopped on home plate, setting off a jubilant celebration among his teammates who were clearly relieved to earn their first win in a week, 4-3 over the Red Sox.

"It's a wonderful feeling. It's elation. It's just fantastic," Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said after the Twins snapped their five-game losing streak. "All of us are grown men, and we get to be a part of it still, like we were when we were younger. It was a great day."
