Nyjer Morgan didn’t even know he won the game with his 9th inning walk off hit.  Morgan’s 2-out, run-scoring double in the 9th plated Craig Counsell from second and sent the Milwaukee Brewers to a come-from-behind 7-6 win at Miller Park.  Morgan admitted afterwards that he thought the game was only in the 8th inning.

The Brewers led 2-1 heading to the 8th.  But Kameron Loe promptly gave up 5-runs to the Mets and things looked bleak with the Brewers down 6-2.  But the Brewers didn’t give up.  Prince Fielder tied the game 6-6 with the second of his two, 2-run homers.  Fielder now has 17 home runs and 54 rbi’s on the season.  Fielder moved past Gorman Thomas into 3rd place on the Brewers all-time home run list (209).  

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said his teams comeback win is a signature win.
