On July 9th, the Miami Marlins dealt the Milwaukee Brewers a 4-3, 10-inning walkoff loss.
Bryan Holaday, despite his status as a light-hitting backup catcher, was the hero of the day when he brought home Miguel Rojasin the bottom of the 10th.
The Marlins got into an early hole on a Lorenzo Cain third inning RBI-single and a Jesus Aguilar solo shot in the fourth.
Holaday collected an RBI in the bottom of the fourth with a sacrifice fly, bringing home JT Riddle to halve the lead.
Aside from those three runs, neither team could again cross the plate until the seventh inning. This, despite starters Jose Urena and Chase Anderson combined to allow 15 hits and three walks in 10 1/3 innings.
"He put up a good fight. I tried to switch it up and get him with my inside fastball and then elevated after that. He got the pitch. – Hader, in Sam Miller‘s excellent writeup"
But the Crew wasn’t finished. Travis Shaw tied it in the bottom of the eighth inning off Drew Steckenrider on a single into right field. That set the stage for Holaday’s walkoff.
