The Miami Marlins verus the Milwaukee Brewers was a wild game from start to finish. 

The Marlins started off hot with two runs in the first. Then Brewers scored three to take the lead in the second inning off of Marlins pitcher Anibal Sanchez.  Sanchez settled down until the sixth inning when he and Chad Gaudin combined to allowed six more runs to score.  The game was over right?  A 7 run lead is safe. Right?  Not in this game. 

In the next two innings the Marlins scored 9 times 3 in the 7th and 6 in the 8th. The game was tied at 11 in the ninth.  Both teams failed to score, so it was into extra innings.  In the top of the 10th inning the Marlins scored a run off of Livan Hernandez to take a 10-9 lead. With the Marlins closer Heath Bell coming in for the save, the game seemed to be over.  Bell walked the first man to face him in Carlos Gomez.  Bell would get the next two hitters to face him. 

After Gomez stole second, Aramis Ramirez would come to bat.  His home run was the 9th of the year.  Bell would blow his fifth save and drop his record to 2-4.  Hernandez would win the game improving his record for the season to 2-1.
