Perkins zips up, gets save

A closer has to be focused on the mound. Like really focused.

Just get those three outs and nail down the win.

Glen Perkins surely knows that and maybe that’s why the

Minnesota Twins closer reitred the first two batters he faced

Friday night before noticing his fly was down.

A local photographer caught the moment of clarity.

Perkins zipped up and then finished off the 3-2 win over the

Cleveland Indians for his 22nd save of the season.

And he was able to laugh about the incident later.
