The squirrel is back!

Target Field squirrel

One night after a squirrel sent players and coaches in the Twins dugout jumping for cover, another squirrel – probably the same now-famous rodent – made a dazzling return during a big spot between the Twins and White Sox Tuesday night at Target Field. 

With two on and two out and the scored tied 3-3 in the fifth inning, the crowd noise quickly ramped up as more and more fans saw the speedy squirrel sprinting through the outfield grass down the right-field line, then darting between Max Kepler's legs as he took a lead off first base. 

The squirrel prompted the umpire to stop the game for a moment, and then the Twins went nuts, scoring four runs with two outs to take a commanding 7-3 lead. 

TC Bear is cool and all, but honestly, it's time for the bear to go and get the squirrel into the mascot game.
