After six years and 2,778 at-bats in the minor leagues , Caleb Gindl finally got his first Major League home run today. In his thirteenth Major League game, and as the Brewers and Marlins were deadlocked at 0 in the bottom of the thirteenth inning, Gindl hit an opposite field home run off of RyanWebb that just snuck over the wall in the left field corner to give the Brewers a 1-0 walk-off win. Oh yeah, he also had the only other extra base hit in the game with a double in the seventh inning.
For the Marlins, they’ve now gone 37 innings without a run, the longest stretch since the 1985 Astros. Which isn’t all that shocking when you realize that the 31-year-old Justin Ruggiano is the team’s leading home run hitter with 12 dingers and a .207/.283/.378 line.
