Minor League Baseball Team Wins On A Three-Run Walk-Off Uncaught Third Strike

Minor league baseball is nuts, man. The Burlington Bees had already bled two runs to the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers in the bottom of the ninth of Friday’s Class-A game, but they still had two outs and two strikes against batter Nic Pierre with the bases loaded. The Timber Rattlers’ left fielder struck out—and his team still won.

Watching the wild pitch from Bees pitcher James Ziemba may lead to discomfort; watching the inaccurate throw to first by catcher Keinner Pina may lead to a verbal “Ohhh noooo.”

Payton Henry, Kenny Corey, and Gabriel Garcia all scored as the Timber Rattlers won, 7-6. Credit team radio announcer Chris Mehring with the hoarse call of the crazy finish.
