Tuesday night’s Brewers-Cardinals NL Central clash in Milwaukee began with home runs from the Cardinals’ Dexter Fowler and Tommy Pham.
The Cardinals had a 4-0 lead for a few innings, and took a 4-3 lead into the bottom of the ninth. With two outs in the ninth, Christian Yelich showed why the Brewers gave up a lot to trade for him over the offseason. Yelich crushed a Dominic Leone breaking ball over the right-center field wall for a game-tying homer.
On the very next pitch, Ryan Braun cranked his second game-winning, two-out, ninth-inning homer of the season to end a bonkers game.
Here’s video of the Brewers’ dingers, with the great Bob Uecker on the call:
And as you surely already knew from the headline, this is the first game in MLB history to start and finish with back-to-back homers.
