The Milwaukee Brewers needed one more out to seal a 6-5 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday afternoon. With the tying run on first base in the form of pinch runner Luke Weaver, Randal Grichuk hammered a Corey Knebel pitch to deep center field.
Luckily for the Brewers, Keon Broxton was patrolling center field. He robbed Grichuk of what would have been a go-ahead home run to end the game and give the Brewers their 69th win of the season, a pretty nice total on August 30th for a team that won just 73 games in 2016.

Following the win, Milwaukee is three games back of the division lead and 3.5 games behind the Rockies for the second Wild Card spot.
Meanwhile, the Cardinals fell to 66-66 with the loss, 5.5 games back of the games and six games behind the Rockies.
