The Milwaukee Brewers beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-6 as Eric Sogard delivered a 2-run walk-off homerun in the bottom of the 9th. The Brewers took a 5-4 lead into the 9th inning after an Avisail Garcia 2 RBI double in the bottom of the 8th.
In the top half of the 9th inning with a one-run lead, Josh Hader came in for the save. Hader would start the inning with a lead-off walk, followed by a strikeout and four more walks. He would walk in two runs as the Brewers would lose the lead. Devin Williams would replace Hader after just one out. Williams worked out of the jam and gave the Brewers a chance to walk it off.
