On Tuesday, theSan Francisco Giantspulled off an impressive comeback win over the AL Central-leading Minnesota Twins.

Down 3-0 in the top of the sixth, the Giants began to chip away and ultimately took the lead in the seventh.

Up by a run in the ninth, San Francisco turned to closer Camilo Doval to hold the Twins in check.

Things got a little interesting in the bottom half of the ninth, as the Twins threatened to score.

However, Doval threw some absolute gas to fool the Twins hitters and keep them in check in order to secure a win for San Francisco.

On Twitter, the Giants posted a video featuring Doval s nastiest pitches in the ninth.

Doval started things off by throwing a 101-mph fastball to fan Byron Buxton.

He then fanned second baseman Edouard Julien on a 91-mph fastball.

With a runner on first base, all that was standing between Doval and his 13th save of the season was outfielder Willi Castro, who struck out on a 90-mph pitch to end the game.

Doval certainly brought the heat in the bottom of the ninth at Target Field.

The team was in need of a strong performance out of their closer, and ultimately got exactly what they needed as a result of his dominant outing.

That save helped earn a win for right-hander Alex Cobb, who improved to 4-1 on the season.

Michael Conforto s go-ahead homer in the seventh made the difference in the game.

But it was Doval who ultimately sent the Twins packing at the end of the night.
