9. Keon Broxton’s Clutch Holiday Robbery

The 4th of July is a day many baseball fans celebrate by getting together with family, fire up the grill and watch their team play during the day. Keon Broxton made a play that all of those people will remember when he robbed a home run with one out in the ninth inning against the Minnesota Twins.

Broxton’s reaction after the catch made the moment even more special, anytime a player expresses emotion like that will fire up a fanbase. Also, the Twins were down two at the time of the catch, but hit a home run on the next batter. Without Broxton’s catch, the Twins tie that game up and the Brewers have to find a way to win that game after blowing a two run lead.

This was during the time where Corey Knebel was going through his struggles with the long ball and the Crew was in the middle of their stretch of 21 games in 20 days. The Brewers ended up sweeping the Twins in this series and it was due in no small part to Broxton’s play in centerfield while Lorenzo Cain was healing up.
