Hunter Renfroe's RBI single in extras briefly staved off elimination from the playoff chase on Oct. 3, one more walk-off win in a 2022 season with a healthy quotient of them.
Garrett Mitchell's penchant for the big moment included a walk-off single Sept. 16 over the New York Yankees. Three players (Keston Hiura, Victor Caratini and Luis Urías) have multiple walk-off winners this year.
Overall, the Brewers have registered 364 walk-off victories of any kind, with 150 different players responsible for authoring the winning moment.
Naturally, we have a full sortable database of every finish here and lots of intriguing notes.
Some notes on walk-off magic in Milwaukee Brewers history:
Robin Yount is tops in Brewers history by appearing at the plate for 14 walk-off victories. Ryan Braun was at the plate for 12 walk-offs (one was a wild pitch). Ted Simmons and Gorman Thomas were there for nine. Prince Fielder, B.J. Surhoff and Geoff Jenkins were all at the plate for eight walk-offs.
Dave Righetti has surrendered the most walk-offs to the Brewers of any pitcher, with five. Among those who have allowed four are Cy Acosta, Ron Davis, Dan Quisenberry and José Mesa.
In May 1970, the Brewers played a doubleheader and registered walk-off wins in both. That included a single by Wayne Comer for a 6-5 win and a single by Jerry McNertney for a 7-6 win over the Washington Senators, the team that became the Texas Rangers two years later. Milwaukee also won via walk-off single the day before (the first walk-off win in club history) and thus had three walk-off wins in two days.
In 1973, the Brewers went a stretch of five games with four walk-off wins and five such wins in seven games.
The Brewers had only one walk-off win in 1982, the year the team went to the World Series. That's the fewest of any season, matched with 2016.
But in 1983, the team had seven walk-off home runs alone, including two apiece by Ted Simmons, Ben Oglivie and Robin Yount. The team had 14 walk-off wins all told that season.
Ted Simmons registered walk-off at-bats on back-to-back nights in 1983, both in extra innings against Boston. He hit a sacrifice fly on Aug. 16 and a single on Aug. 17, both leading to 4-3 wins.
Mike Felder registered back-to-back walk-off hits on Sept. 23-24, 1987. His singles beat the Yankees and Red Sox, 8-7 and 7-6.
Bill Hall registered back-to-back walk-off hits April 27-28, 2004, doing so in the most polar opposite of ways. His home run capped a wild 9-8 win in which catcher Chad Moeller hit for the cycle, and the next night, his squeeze bunt single brought in the winner to cap a rally from a 9-0 deficit to win, 10-9.
On Sept. 2, 1996, José Mesa uncorked a wild pitch that allowed the Brewers to tie the game against Cleveland with two outs, and then José Valentin singled for the game-winning RBI in a 7-6 outcome.
Adam Ottavino has surrendered two walk-offs, and both were notable, including once in the playoffs (2018) and once on Opening Day (2013).
The Brewers had six walk-off wins in one month, September 2000, capped with a Jeromy Burnitz home run against Pittsburgh on Sept. 24. Four of those walk-off wins, including two against the Cubs, ended with errors.
Many people surely remember the Brant Brown error on Sept. 23, 1998, that netted three runs with two outs in the ninth for a stunning win over the Cubs. But do they also remember that the next walk-off, the following April, also came against the Cubs and also came with Geoff Jenkins at the plate. His double, also against pitcher Rod Beck, gave the Brewers a 5-4 win over Chicago.
The Brewers ended three straight games with walk-off wins in 2006, capped by Eddie Pérez's walk-off home run on May 17.
In 2015, Martín Maldonado was responsible for both of the only two Brewers walk-offs. His 17th-inning home run capped a memorable Mother's Day on May 31, but he also delivered a game-winning single in the 11th on May 10 against the Cubs.
Sept. 6, 1976, marked the only walk-off with a batter and pitcher sharing a last name, when Dan Thomas doubled off Cleveland's Stan Thomas for the winner.
Walk-off triples have been delivered by Bobby Mitchell (1974), John Briggs (1974), Rick Manning (1983), Charlie Moore (1986) and Turner Ward (1996).
There have been nine 1-0 walk-off wins, but the most famous came Aug. 26, 1987, when Rick Manning's single beat Cleveland, leaving Paul Molitor on deck in the 10th inning. Molitor's 39-game hitting streak was snapped as a result of the outcome, and fans booed Manning. Three 1-0 wins ended on walk-off home runs, authored by Jeromy Burnitz in 1997, Geoff Jenkins in 2006 and Caleb Gindl in 2013
Current Brewers manager Craig Counsell was at the plate for four walk-offs, but only one hit — also an error and two sacrifice flies.
The highest-scoring walk-off win? A 13-12 battle in 2012 that ended on an Aramis Ramirez two-run homer with two outs. There has never been a 12-11 walk-off win for Milwaukee.
Gorman Thomas is the only player to draw a walk-off walk twice.
Pitchers to hit walk-offs: Glendon Rusch against future Brewers reliever Scott Linebrink on April 19, 2003, with a bunt single in the 14th inning, and Yovani Gallardo who doubled off the fence on May 27, 2014, as a pinch hitter to beat Baltimore in the 10th.
The Brewers won once on a walk-off balk, on July 15, 2005, against Washington and pitcher Mike Stanton. It was a controversial call that manager Frank Robinson was irate over afterward. Believe it or not, there's only one hit-by-pitch walk-off, as well, coming in 1999 when Mark Loretta was plunked with the bases loaded against St. Louis.
On Sept. 15, 2021, Daniel Vogelbach hit the only walk-off grand slam in franchise history in which the team was down by three runs at the time, thereby needing all four runs for the walk-off win.
Top franchise players who were never standing at the plate for a walk-off moment: Carlos Gómez, Scott Podsednik, Darrell Porter.
Players you may have forgotten who have multiple walk-offs: John Briggs, Steve Brye, Gus Gil, Tony Graffanino, Jeff Huson, Ted Savage, Bobby Mitchell, James Mouton, Dickie Thon.
Players who spent some time with the Brewers who have allowed walk-offs to the Brewers: Juan Acevedo, Ricky Bottalico, Jose Cabrera, Francisco Cordero (3x), Mike DeJean, Zach Duke, Rollie Fingers (3x), LaTroy Hawkins (2x), Doug Henry, Trevor Hoffman, Jeremy Jeffress, Doug Jones (2x), Odell Jones, Brandon Kintzler, Scott Linebrink, Braden Looper, Guillermo Mota, Jesse Orosco (2x), Ken Sanders, Luis Vizcaíno, Pete Vuckovich, David Weathers (2x), Bob Wickman
