What else is there to say? We won!!! Nobody thought it would be possible after the first two months of the season (including me), but look at us now! I don’t have much time to write this, so I’ll get to the point as quick as possible…we’re going to the playoffs!

Boof Bonser was amazing, giving up only 2 hits (one was a solo homer) over 6 and 2/3 innings. He struck out 5 and walked 2.

Torii Hunter hit a two-run homerun, his 30th of the year, in the bottom of the 7th to give the Twins a 5-1 lead.

Justin Morneau followed suit in the 8th, this time with 2 guys on base. I have a feeling that he needed a little spark like that, and his homerun will do the trick. I think he’ll go on a hot streak for this last week, along with the first part of the playoffs.

Nick Punto and Joe Mauer combined to go 5-for-8 with 2 RBI, a run scored, 2 walks, and a strikeout. Pretty productive day for these guys.

Here are some pictures of the post-game celebration

O-MVP: Torii Hunter – 2; Joe Mauer – 1; Justin Morneau – 1

Co-MVP: Michael Cuddyer – 1; Phil Nevin – 1
