This is LA Baseball: Dodgers 6 Twins 5

Attended my sixth game of the season.

The Dodgers and Twins last met in Dodger's stadium 40 years ago in the 1965 MLB Championship. Koufax didn't pitch in game one because it fell on Yom Kippur. Drysdale started and got shelled. The Dodgers dropped game two and headed back to LA with their backs to the wall. They took three straight in LA, lost game six but Koufax finished off the Twins in game seven. In the pre-game, players from that championship season were introduced.

Tonight, a very dramatic game. The Dodgers jumped to a 4-1 lead in the bottom of the first. The Twins cut the lead to 4-3 in the top of the second and then took the lead 5-4 in the top of the third. The Dodgers managed to tie it in the bottom of the sixth. Sanchez took care of the seventh, Brazoban took care of the eighth and Gange took care of the ninth.

Hee-Seop Choi stepped up to the plate in the bottom of the ninth and whacked the first pitch! The fans in our lower reserve section rose as one to see if it would stay fair ... it plunked the pole in the right field corner and the stadium erupted in celebration of the walk-off homer!
