We're Gonna Win, Jim

Here's Jim Souhan of the Strib on the Twins' remarkable win over Detroit Sunday, in which they scored six runs in the bottom of the eighth off the usually unhittable Jeremy Bonderman:

"The 43,204 in attendance Sunday probably went home mouthing famous lines in sports history:

"Do you believe in miracles?"

"I don't believe what I just saw!"

Best of all, for a team hanging tough in the playoff race, the fans also were probably thinking, "And we'll see you tomorrow night!"'

That last quote, of course, was Jack Buck's call of Kirby Puckett's game-winning homer in the Game 6 of the '91 World Series.

And this was before the Twins won tonight's game 15-2...
