The Twins tried to duct tape their outfield wall back together

In the top of the fifth inning of the Twins' 7-4 rain-delayed win over the Brewers on Monday, a section of the Target Field outfield wall popped out of place. Like a door off its hinges, it simply wouldn't close. Left fielder Oswaldo Arcia tried pushing it shut, but the loose wall was persistent.
So, a Twins groundskeeper ran out to left, carrying the one tool everyone relies on when all else fails: duct tape.

Yes, like so many stymied home improvement enthusiasts before him, he ripped off a couple of strips and tried to duct tape the outfield wall together, while the crowd cheered for the go-to panacea. 
In the end, though, it appeared that something other than the duct tape fixed the wall, as the groundskeeper removed his pieces and the wall stayed in place. But I'm going to say it was the tape that did it anyway -- because I don't believe in a lot of things, but I do believe in duct tape
