Gindl's HR in 13th sends Brewers past Marlins 1-0Submitted: 07/21/2013
Story By Associated Press

MILWAUKEE - Caleb Gindl hit his first career home run in the bottom of the 13th inning and the Milwaukee Brewers beat Miami 1-0 on Sunday, shutting out the punchless Marlins for the third consecutive game.

Miami has gone a club-record 37 innings without a run, the longest drought by a major league team in 28 years. The Houston Astros were held scoreless for 42 consecutive innings in July 1985, according to STATS.

The Marlins haven't scored since Derek Dietrich drove in two runs in the fourth inning of a 5-2 loss in 10 innings to the Washington Nationals on July 14.


Sunday's game was the longest scoreless game in the majors since Boston won 1-0 in 16 innings at Tampa Bay on July 17, 2011.

The Brewers were the last team in the majors to produce a shutout this season, but now have eight in the team's past 31 games. While the Marlins have been blanked 12 times.

"Everyone gets excited this time of year when the snow starts to melt, you start to see some open water and what better way to prepare by tying flies and start the fishing off with a good full box of flies," says class instructor Austin Noring.
