An otherwise unimpressive showdown between the Texas Rangers and Minnesota Twins took a turn for the mildly interesting on Sunday night when Mother Nature opted to intervene.
With one out at the top of the fourth inning and the game knotted at nothing, a loud noise was heard and a bright flash of lightening could be seen – immediately sending all the folks on the field -- Ryan Doumit, Roy Oswalt and an assortment of other characters -- running for their lives.
It was great.

Best reaction to what happened? Unquestionably, it was this tweet from Minnesota’s Denard Span:
That's the loudest noise I've ever heard. I thought Jesus was comin!
