The Minnesota Twins multiply the Detroit Tiger In a bizarre – and comedic – win on Tuesday night, the two teams were left baffled at the end.

The twins were down by one in the bottom ninth place when Gregory Soto walked past Trevor Larnach and Jiu Urcella. That was when Miguel Sano, the Twins’ final blow, hit a linear drive into the right field that had just snapped a Robbie Grossman’s gauntlet.

What followed was a misreading of Sano and Ursula. Sano ran for second after a throw to the home plate went too far, forcing Orcilla to run to third. The only problem is that Lanche got trapped at the base.
