It wasn't the prettiest of wins, but the Minnesota Twins walk-off in style anyway.

Despite getting into an early hole against the worst team in the entire league, the Twins fought back with clutch performances by Trevor Larnach, Byron Buxton, and Alex Kirilloff to earn a second straight win.

Pablo Lopez exited after four innings, allowing three runs on four hits and leaving everyone in Twins Territory holding their breath. It wasn't just that he left his start early, rather his velocity took a sharp nose dive on his final pitches of the night.

It was cold in Minneapolis, with a frost advisory in effect, so perhaps it was just the weather having a negative impact on him. The Twins were equally as frigid for most of the night but started to heat up late in the game thanks to a huge home run by Larnach in the eighth inning.

An inning after Steven Okert and Jay Jackson combined to allow two runs, Larnach launched a two-run homer that brought the Twins back within a run. Buxton hit a game-tying home run in the bottom of the ninth before Alex Kirilloff scored Austin Martin from third on a walk-off single.

Of course, Cory Provus being on the mic for the game helped make the comeback even more epic than it already was.

Not for nothing, but the Twins Radio call from Kris Atteberry ruled just as hard as the television broadcast.

Moments before, across the plaza, the Minnesota Timberwolves polished off a blowout win over the Phoenix Suns to extend their lead to 2-0 in first round of the NBA Playoffs. It's not often that the stars so brilliantly align for fans in Minnesota, but Tuesday night was one of those rare moments where everything felt good.

Here's to hoping it's a sign of the Twins starting to turn things around rather than simply being part of a magical moment of catharsis.

Minnesota still has a number of things to work out, not the least of which is how the worst team in the league was able to score five runs and push things to where a walk-off was needed. The upshot is that the Twins' offense showed up when it needed to, which is almost as rare as what happned on Tuesday at Target Center and Target Field.

More good news is that important players are going to return to the lineup soon. Max Kepler is already on a tear after coming off the IL, and if Carlos Correa can match that pace then there might be hope yet that the Twins can fully turn this ship around.

For now, we can at least live in the moment of how awesome things went on Tuesday and hope that it's an omen.
