The Miami Marlins looked as if they were on the verge of a blowout loss to the Milwaukee Brewers when the Brewers roughed up Josh Johnson and took an early 5-1 lead in the second inning. Johnson eventually settled down however and finished up a few more innings holding down the Brewers while the Marlins offense got things going.
Justin Ruggiano got the comeback going with a solo home run to left field in the seventh inning. Moments later Logan Morrison cracked a three-run home run to to center field to tie the game at 5-5. The Brewers took the lead again the very next inning, but in the top of the ninth inning Giancarlo Stanton went deep to tie in the game and send it into extra innings.
In extras, Hanley Ramirez knocked in the eventual game winning run on a single as the Marlins complete the rally and finally pick up a win in the series.
