Brewers 3, Diamondbacks 2: Tonight's Turning Points

It still hasn't sunk in yet for me. Hopefully reliving these moments will help me catch up.

1) Nyjer Morgan's tenth inning single: +.305 WPA (Video)

In the Brewers' first time up in extra innings, Carlos Gomez singled to left with one out and stole second base. That created an opportunity for Nyjer Morgan, who singled through the middle to drive home the winning run in a series-clinching walkoff victory.

2) Gerardo Parra's ninth inning double: -.198 WPA

The Brewers' late inning plans were quickly derailed in the ninth inning, and Gerardo Parra started the carnage with his first hit of the series, a first pitch double to right center.

3) Sean Burroughs' ninth inning single: -.194 WPA

Burroughs was the next hitter to come up with none out in the ninth, and his single to left gave the Diamondbacks two on with none out in the inning.

4t) Yuniesky Betancourt's sixth inning single: +.175 WPA (Video)

The first two Brewers to bat in the sixth reached, but the next two failed to advance them, leaving Yuni as the Brewers' last hope in the inning. His bloop single to left plated Ryan Braun and gave the Brewers a 2-1 lead.

4t) Ryan Roberts grounds out to end the eighth: +.175 WPA (Video)

Even before giving up the tying run in the ninth, the Brewers were in real trouble in the eighth: The Diamondbacks had runners on first and third with one out after a walk and single, but Francisco Rodriguez struck out Paul Goldschmidt and got Ryan Roberts to ground out to end the threat.
