It's a set up many baseball players dream of; down 3 to 2 in the bottom of the ninth, two outs, two on and a chance to win.
Eric Thames making the most of this opportunity Friday night, sending a 1-1 pitch over the fence in right field to give the Brewers a 5 to 3 victory at Miller Park.
Teammates crowded home plate as Thames made his way around the bases. As he touched home the Gatorade splashed over him as the hero of the game got mobbed in congratulation.
This was Thames' 15th home run of the season.
