If you turned off tonight's game early, you missed one of the season's better moments.

The Brewers went into the eighth inning trailing 3-0 after Kyle Lohse allowed a pair of home runs to Yoenis Cespedes, but rallied for three to tie the game and eventually force extra innings. Then, in the tenth, Carlos Gomez took off from first on a hit-and-run and Yuniesky Betancourt drove him home with a walkoff double to right center for the victory.

John Axford pitched a scoreless tenth for the victory, but a big chunk of the credit for tonight's win should be spread across the entire bullpen. They pitched four scoreless innings to keep the Crew in the game and leave them in position to come back.

Brewer batters finished the night with nine hits, including a pair each for Gomez and Aramis Ramirez. Scooter Gennett's first MLB start wasn't exactly what the Brewers were looking for, though: He went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts before being lifted as part of a double switch. Rickie Weeks replaced him defensively and had the first hit in the eighth inning rally. Juan Francisco, meanwhile, did not have a hit but drew a walk in his Brewer debut.

This was the Brewers' seventh extra inning game of the season. They're now 4-3 in those games.

This series wraps up with a 1:10 matinee tomorrow. Yovani Gallardo will take on Bartolo Colon in a non-televised matchup.
