Andres Gimenez' walkoff home run completes Guardians' rally past Twins
Tyler Thornburg couldn't hold a 3-1 lead, giving up two runs in both the eighth and ninth innings
July 1, 2022
CLEVELAND - Before Thursday's game against Cleveland, the culmination of eight meetings in 10 days against the Guardians, Twins manager Rocco Baldelli noted how he rarely speaks to his team after a loss, preferring to let players lead those discussions.
But a couple of hours later - and for the second consecutive day - the Twins hobbled out of Progressive Field while the Guardians raucously celebrated a walkoff home run, this time a two-run shot by Andres Gimenez in the bottom of the ninth, which earned him an ice shower from a Gatorade cooler.
And Baldelli had to stage a rare manager intervention after the 5-3 loss.
