Brewers 13, Marlins 12: Today's Turning Points

1) Aramis Ramirez's two-run walkoff home run in the tenth: +.860 WPA (Video)

This may very well be the single biggest turning point the Brewers have seen all year. A rollercoaster game appeared headed toward a disastrous conclusion with two outs in the tenth but Ramirez's home run scored Carlos Gomez and gave the Brewers the win.

2) Jose Reyes' tenth inning solo home run: -.415 WPA (Video)

John Axford and the Brewer defense held the Marlins scoreless with the game tied in the ninth, but Livan Hernandez allowed this solo home run to Jose Reyes in the tenth to give Miami a 12-11 lead.

3) Aramis Ramirez's third inning two-run double: +.213 WPA (Video)

Ramirez came to the plate with two on and one out in the third with the Crew down 2-1 and gave the Brewers the lead for the first time today with this double.

4) Omar Infante grounds into a double play in the ninth: +.183 WPA

The Brewer bullpen had allowed nine runs and recorded six outs heading into the ninth and John Axford proceeded to walk the first batter he faced, but got Omar Infante to ground into a double play to erase the runner.

5) Logan Morrison's first inning two run home run: -.180 WPA (Video)

Marco Estrada's only blemish today came in the first inning, when Logan Morrison took him deep to give the Marlins a 2-0 lead.

And the next five:

6) Carlos Gomez's tenth inning walk: +.134 WPA
7) George Kottaras' ninth inning flyout: -.133 WPA
8) Norichika Aoki's tenth inning flyout: -.124 WPA
