Here are the Brewers’ five most exciting finishes of 2022.

August 13th – Milwaukee takes down St. Louis in extra innings in major division showdown

In the midst of one of the most important series of the year, this was a much-needed win for the Brewers. The pitchers shined in this game; Corbin Burnes went seven strong innings for the Crew and Adam Wainwright had the Brewers no-hit through six and a third innings.

However, Milwaukee strung together some key runs late in the ball game to pull this one out. In the top of the 8th inning, Luis Urias launched a solo home run off of Wainwright to tie the game. In the top of the 10th inning, Hunter Renfroe came in clutch with a go ahead triple to take the lead and was eventually scored by Kolten Wong.

That would prove to be a much-needed insurance run as the Brewers would barely hold on to defeat the Cardinals by a score of 3-2.

June 2nd – Milwaukee walks-off San Diego as Andrew Mc”Clutchen” snaps out of his hitless streak

This one was one of my favorite endings to a game of the season. On a night where Milwaukee could not get much going offensively, the Brewers scored four runs in the bottom of the 9th inning to cap off the improbable comeback.

After Jace Peterson cracked a three-run triple to tie the game, Andrew McCutchen, who had been struggling since returning from a Covid IL stint, broke out of his 0-for-32 slump to hit a walk off single to win the game for the Crew.

That would be all that McCutchen would need to get going as he would go on to hit .315 for the month of June after that terrible hitless streak.
