In the big inning…
The conclusion of last night’s game was nothing short of incredible. Despite Ryan Minor and Jerome Pena’s ejections in the top of the ninth inning, the Keys rallied and scored five runs in the bottom of the ninth inning. The real hero, Michael Ohlman.
Ohlman finished the game three-for-four with a double, a home run and four RBIs. The Keys catcher has been tearing it up in June batting .372 (32-86) with five homers and 17 RBIs. Ever since the All Star break, he has been batting .484 (16-33).

“I don’t know what else they could come up with. They threw the kitchen sink at me, but I’ll take it and enjoy the moment.”
