After attending our worship service at Constance Free this morning, we headed down to the Metrodome today. The Twins were playing the Mariners for the final game of the series. The Twins had won the first 2 games and started out with 5 runs in the bottom of the first. As we have seen though, no lead is safe against the Mariners. The Twins kept building the lead to 8-0 and then the Mariners started their comeback. They scored 4 times with 3 home runs, ending Glen Perkins night in the 6th. Justin Morneau hit one himself in the bottom of the 6th off the right seats. The Mariners kept fightng and pulled up to 10-8 in the 8th when Joe Nathan came in with the bases loaded and 2 outs. He recorded the out and finished with a strong 9th as the Twins won 11-8.
To add to the all american day, we saw a bald eagle fly over i-94 on the way home. The eagle must have been flying over the Mississippi which runs parallel to the freeway in Brooklyn Center.
Of course I also watched the olympics as I finished my day, just needed some apple pie.
