Watch: Wild plays help Twins win (and a Ben Revere home run)

  • May 28, 2014 - 8:25 AM

Several things happened during the Twins' 4-3 victory over Texas that are worth seeing again.

First, there was center fielder Aaron Hicks reaching over the wall to rob Donnie Murphy of a home run:


Here's the link to the ground ball on which Eduardo Nunez veered around Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre to keep the Twins' ninth-inning tally going. Nunez was not called for running out of the baseline because he was giving Beltre a chance to field the ball -- and because Beltre made no attempt to tag him, according to the umpire.

And here's a look at Danny Santana's spinning 40-foot tap that Rangers reliever Joakim Soria muffed for an error that ended the game.


And finally, after 1,594 at-bats, former Twins outfielder Ben Revere has a homerun! Good for him.
