It's Over!

The drought is finally over! Jason Tyner has finally hit his first Major League home run! After 1,220 at-bats, the veteran outfielder finally went deep last night in a game against the Cleveland Indians.

There was no first home run silent treatment for Tyner when he rturned to the dugout. His teammates could hardly contain themselves. Now we'll have to see if his manager, Univ of Texas alum Ron Gardenhire, will keep his word and wear the Aggies tee-shirt he promised to don if Tyner homered.

After losing the lead, the Twins came back and won the game 3-2, a bit of good news for the Yankees: With their 7-5 loss to Baltimore they stayed 5 games behind Cleveland in the AL Wild Card Race.

Gardenhire said he'd live up to the bet. I never did hear when he did it, though.
