VIDEO: Byron Buxton's Clutch 2-Run Homer in Bottom of the 9th Ties Game up for Twins

You thought Byron Buxton was only good for his defense and speed, didn't you? Well, it looks like the Seattle Mariners did. In the bottom of the ninth with a runner on and down by two, the Twins outfielder clobbered a 2-run blast to tie the game and give Minnesota fans some free baseball.

Goodbye! That's Buxton's ninth blast of the year, and we can't forget he leads the league with 21 doubles.

The Twins are a revelation right now.
