Both wins by the Miami Marlins in a three-game series against the Brewers were walk-offs. Wednesday night second baseman Starlin Castro singled in the winner in the bottom of the 12th inning with one out. Manager Craig Counsell said that his team battled, but fell short.
He also spoke about the team’s need for pitchers.
Only a few hundred fans were in the stands at the end and the announced attendance of five-thousand-265 was the smallest in the park’s seven-year history. Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar found out he won the online vote for the final National League roster spot, then went three-for-five with three runs batted in while his team lost. Milwaukee is expected to activate left-hander Wade Miley from the disabled list so he can start tonight’s (Thursday’s) game at Pittsburgh.
