Walk-off wins come in all forms, and the Pensacola Blue Wahoos just walked themselves into one of the most insane and strangest walk-off wins you could possibly imagine Sunday night.

The Miami Marlins‘ AA affiliate were facing the Milwaukee Brewers’ affiliate Biloxi Shuckers. Down by two runs, the Blue Wahoos needed a big ninth inning to pull off another come-from-behind win.

The inning started out by the first batter reaching first base on an error. The next batter was walked and that put runners on first and second. Then, there was a hit-by-pitch that loaded the bases.

Okay, bases loaded with no outs wasn’t ideal for the Shuckers, but they were still up by two. They should’ve still been able to get out of this jam. Then another hit-by-pitch walked in a run and made it a 6-5 game. Now things got serious as any hit or sac fly would tie things up.

The Blue Wahoos didn’t even need to do that, as another hit-by-pitch tied the game. Fourth time wound up not being the charm for the Shuckers, with the fourth consecutive hit by pitch giving the Blue Wahoos the victory.

The Blue Wahoos had a flair for the dramatics for their home fans. This was Pensacola’s third straight walk-off win and in a six-game home series against Biloxi, the Blue Wahoos had four walk-off wins.

When it comes to Minor League Baseball, it’s about getting people to the ballpark. Coming from behind to win every night in very creative ways is certainly one way to do just that.
