Last night Tyler Flowers hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning to give the White Sox some added insurance in their win over the Minnesota Twins. The tiebreaker hit just before was probably the big moment, but Flowers’ bomb was pretty important too.

Here was Steve Stone’s call of it (if the video gets taken down, you can view it here):

Goosebumps, man. Goosebumps.

Wednesday night’s game at PNC Park between the Brewers and Pirates has been postponed, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Brent Suter and Chad Kuhl were scheduled to square off on the mound. Their starts will likely be pushed back to Thursday. The Pirates will host the Diamondbacks and the Brewers will host the Cardinals.

The Cubs won on Wednesday afternoon, so the Brewers are tied with the Cubs for first place in the NL Central. The Pirates are seven games back in fourth place.
