'I think we've had enough of the Cleveland Guardians': Listen to the Minnesota Twins TV crew's somber call of Andrés Giménez's walk-off homer

All of the Guards' six wins over the Twins this season have come in their last at-bat, partly thanks to a dreadful Minnesota bullpen.

CLEVELAND — It was a joyous occasion at Progressive Field on Thursday, as Andrés Giménez's ninth-inning home run gave the Guardians a 5-3 win over the Minnesota Twins.

It was the second consecutive walk-off victory for Cleveland, with both triumphs coming after the team trailed by at least three runs. The Guards took three out of five in this series with Minnesota, moving to within a game of first place in the American League Central Division.

Yes, it was a time for celebration... if you were a Guardians fan. We won't blame Twins supporters for feeling a bit differently.

Those feelings of frustration were evident during Minnesota's hometown television broadcast on Bally Sports North. As Giménez's belt sailed toward the bullpen, play-by-play man Dick Bremer suddenly became dejected and downcast, as if his heart had broken on the air.

"I think we've had enough of the Cleveland Guardians," Bremer can be heard somberly uttering before going silent as Giménez rounded the bases.

In all fairness, Bremer has every right to be fed up, as all six of the Guardians' wins over the Twins this season have come in their last at-bat. This has been partly due to a woeful Minnesota bullpen, which currently ranks 10th in the AL.

Bremer also called Josh Naylor's game-winning homer on Wednesday. While not nearly as subdued as his later call, he also chose to remain quiet as Naylor headed for home plate.

Fortunately, we in Cleveland have the enthusiasm of the great Tom Hamilton to entertain us in moments of jubilation. To get your spirits back up, here's Hammy's call of Giménez's dramatic blast.
