Lorenzo Cain makes phenomenal walk-off catch to rob game-tying homer
Is opening day too early to call something the catch of the year?
Maybe so, but Milwaukee Brewers fans aren’t going to forget this one anytime soon. Lorenzo Cain, the team’s star outfielder, sealed the Brewers’ 5-4 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday in eye-popping fashion.
Jose Martinez was up with two outs in the ninth, representing the game-tying run. He smashed one into right-center that looked like it might tie the game. But Cain ranged toward the wall and made a phenomenal leaping catch to end the game.
The celebration? It certainly equaled the moment.
Even Brewers manager Craig Counsell thought this wasn’t going to end well for his team.
The Brewers won the NL Central last year and advanced to the NLCS where they took the Dodgers to seven games — they’re keeping the same energy in 2019.
