Big Night For Us

Craig Breslow - scoreless inning of relief for the surging Twins against their rivals, the Chi Sox.

Scott Schoeneweis - scoreless inning of relief against my Cubbies.

John Grabow - scoreless inning of relief for the Bucs against the Brewers.

Kevin Youkilis - 2 for 3 with a walk, a HR (28th), 2 runs scored (90), and 2 RBIs (113)
What a year for Youk... MVP?

And the man of the hour...

Ryan Braun - Of late it's been a struggle for the young slugger, but tonight he came through when it mattered most. The Mets had come from behind to beat the Cubs earlier tonight, so the ball was in the Brewers' court. With the game tied 1-1 in the bottom of the tenth, Braun came up with the bases loaded and 2 outs. He was 0 for his last 4 before he launched a walk-off grand slam into the left field seats, keeping the Brewers' playoff hopes alive. The moonshot was his 36th jack of the year. Talk about clutch. Way to go Braunsy!

And in related news, the ball still hasn't come down yet.
