Baseball's best pitchers in the clutch: Felipe Rivero

The key to Rivero's success has been combining his 30 percent strikeout rate with a ground ball rate over 50 percent, limiting the damage opposing hitters can do even when they make contact.

Frazier walks it off, joins rare club

Leadoff hitter Adam Frazier delivered a two-out, two-run, walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning in the Pirates' win over the Brewers on Wednesday. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, only three other Pirates' leadoff hitters have produced a walk-off home run over the last 40 years : Barry Bonds (1986), Orlando Merced (1991) and Andrew McCutchen (2009).

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Tough loss for the Brewers. With a chance to tie the Rockies for the second wild card and gain a game on the Cubs, Aaron Wilkerson made his first career start and didn't last long, but the Brewers still took a 4-3 lead in the seventh. Corey Knebel's throwing error on a little dribbler allowed a run to score in the eighth, however, and then Adam Frazier clocked his first career walk-off home run, a two-run shot off Knebel. The Pirates snap a seven-game skid, but that L1 is going to sting for the Brewers.
