Best Lorenzo Cain Moment #2: The Opening Day Walk Off Robbery

Opening Day is always memorable. The fresh cut grass, the smell of freshly cooked sausages, the hope that a new season brings, and all the pomp and circumstance just make it special. But what made Opening Day 2019 even more special was Lorenzo Cain.

On this day, the Brewers were taking on the rival Cardinals. It’s always fun to beat the Cardinals, whether it’s Opening Day or not, but it’s especially fun to do it on Opening Day and to do it in the fashion Milwaukee did that day.

It was a 5-4 Brewers lead heading into the 9th inning. Josh Hader was on to close the game for the Crew. He already had two outs and just had to face the slugging Jose Martinez.

Martinez had all of Milwaukee’s hearts drop for a few seconds. Until Lorenzo Cain came to the rescue.

You don’t get more insane and clutch than that. With 2 outs in the 9th, a potential game tying home run is robbed by Lorenzo Cain to end the game and secure the Opening Day victory for the Brewers over their rivals.

The reaction was perfect. Cain just launched the ball up in the air in celebration, it may not have even landed. Just pure elation and joy from Cain and his Brewers teammates, plus the 40,000+ fans in attendance at that game. It was one of the greatest endings to a Brewers game in recent memory and it kicked off that Gold Glove campaign for Cain in 2019.

Cain’s robbery instantly vaulted that game into one of the most memorable Opening Day games in franchise history.

When most people think of Lorenzo Cain with the Brewers, especially his defense, they think of this play. This is the first one that pops into people’s head.

But it only comes at No. 2 on our ranking. The top spot goes to a moment on offense…
