6. Josh Hader Strikes Out All 8 Batters he Faces
On April 30th the Brewers were playing in Cincinnati and worked their way to a 6-5 lead in the 7th inning when they brought in their star relief pitcher Josh Hader with one out. Hader proceeded to strikeout all eight batters he faced to protect that one run lead and win the game.
The best part was, no hitters were even close to touching Hader. There weren’t very many foul balls and it was just “Good Morning, Good Afternoon, and Good Night” from Hader to get through the hitters.
Out of all the impressive performances Hader put on this season, this one takes the cake. This is when people really started to realize how good he can be, and that he was going to dominate. Also, he began to get more national attention as well, and with how good his stuff is, it was well deserved.
