In what was an entertaining battle between two teams that have surprised MLB fans in a big way this season, the four-game series between the Minnesota Twins and Oakland Athletics was capped off in thrilling fashion. Trailing by one run in the bottom of the ninth, the Twins staged an impressive comeback, which was capped off by Max Kepler's two-out RBI single to salvage the series split.
The fans in Minnesota are going home happy.
Kepler also delivered three RBI earlier in the contest with yet another home run.
The A's made a valiant comeback to make it 6-5, but reliever Liam Hendriks couldn't close the door. He allowed two earned runs on three hits in the final frame with Ehire Adrianza's RBI triple tying the game and setting Kepler up with the ultimate moment.
