It took a little longer than they had hoped. But thanks to a walk-off single from Mike Moustakas, the Brewers took a 1-0 lead in the NLDS vs. the Rockies.

Milwaukee held a 2-0 lead heading into the ninth inning. But the Rockies tied the game and actually had a chance to take the lead. But Jeremy Jeffress and the Brewers held tough to keep the game tied. That set up Moustakas, whose single in the 10th inning scored Christian Yelich to win the game.

Twitter reacted to the big play.

Indeed. While this is the first playoff experience for many Brewers, Moustakas is a postseason veteran, having been on the Kansas City Royals in 2014 and 2015.

The Brewers will try to go up 2-0 on Friday, though they’re hoping the win is a little less suspenseful.
