Rene Tosoni

September 23, 2011 – Rookie outfielder Rene Tosoni doubled home the winning run from first base with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to earn the Twins a 3-2 victory over the Mariners which ended Minnesota’s 11-game losing streak. He was the first major-league player to end a losing streak of 11 games or more with a walk-off RBI since Aug. 22, 2006, when Adrian Beltre hit a walk-off homer to end an 11-game losing streak by the Mariners. Tosoni was the first rookie to end a losing streak of at least 11 games with a walk-off RBI since July 14, 1998, when Miguel Cairo hit a game-ending single to snap an 11-game losing streak by the Devil Rays in their inaugural season.
