Ranking the Milwaukee Brewers walk off wins in 2021
2. Rowdy Tellez shows clutch in big series against Giants
In a series against the San Francisco Giants the Milwaukee Brewers were without starters Adrian Houser and Eric Lauer and relievers Jake Cousins, Hunter Strickland, Jandel Gustave, and closer Josh Hader for covid reasons. Rowdy Tellez came up in the bottom of the 10th inning with Avisail Garcia on second base versus left handed reliever Jarlin Garcia. Rowdy Tellez delivered a game winning single to left field.
Rowdy Tellez was consistently good against left handed pitching in 2021, slashing .276/.333/.397 against lefties this past season.
1. Daniel Vogelbach the Cardinal win stealer
This was the easiest walk off win to rank for the Milwaukee Brewers in 2021 because it was far and away the best. In early September the Brewers entered the 9th inning of the Sunday the 5th down 5-1 in the bottom of the ninth inning. Fans exiting American Family Field before the epic climax of this game no doubt regretted it.
Jackie Bradley Jr. started the 9th with a ground rule double, followed by a Luke Maile single. With two runners on and nobody out, Luis Urias struck out. Jace “on base” Peterson knocked a one out double scoring JBJ and bringing the score to 5-2 Cardinals. Eduardo Escobar drew a four pitch walk bringing up the pitcher’s spot which prompted Craig Counsell to send out Daniel Vogelbach.
St Louis brought in their closer Alex Reyes and what came next was delight for Brewers fans and dread for Cardinals fans.
A fantastic call from the broadcast captured the emotion and gravity of the pinch hit walk off grand slam by Daniel Vogelbach. Easily the greatest walk off win for the Milwaukee Brewers in 2021.
