4 K’s? No problem.
After striking out in his first 4 at-bats of the day, Victor Caratini made the most of his 5th.
The Brewers’ catcher hit a walk-off 3-run homer in the 10th inning to beat the Cubs, setting off a wild celebration at home plate.
Manager Craig Counsell loved watching his players enjoy the win.
“You’re happy for the team,” Counsell told Wisconsin Morning News on 620 WTMJ. “I wasn’t a Gatorade cooler guy, for sure. You’re just jumping. It’s a time to act like a kid. I remember Jim Leyland used to talk about celebrations, saying that it’s a time for grown men to act like kids. That’s why you want to do those things.”
