Different day, similar story. This time it had a happy ending for the Marlins.
Hanley Ramirez delivered a two-out RBI single to center in the 10th inning that rallied the Marlins to a 7-6 win over the Brewers in front of a Fourth of July crowd of 31,910 at Miller Park.
“Like I say, we never give up,” Ramirez said. “We’re still fighting all the way through. We had a couple of tough losses. This is a good win.”
A day after storming back from seven runs down to grab a lead, only to watch it disappear in the 10th inning, 13-12, the Marlins had reason to celebrate on Wednesday’s national holiday.
Down to their final strike, Gaby Sanchez connected on a two-out, opposite-field home run to right field off Milwaukee closer John Axford.
