This brought up a question who will dump the water over Barnes, since he was the person to get the last 2 players to hit the walk off hit. Charlie Culberson and Justin Morneau.
After watching LaTroy Hawkins run in from the bullpen and seeing the on field photographers turn to the dugout we knew it was coming and it was Latroy that would be the fill for Barnes.
