MIAMI -- Once an unknown among Miami Marlins fans entering the season, the legend of #HitsMcGehee reached an all-time high Sunday afternoon.
Casey McGehee drove in all three RBI, including the walk-off sacrifice fly in the 10th inning, of Miami's 3-2 comeback victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates at Marlins Park.
Down two runs and four outs away from being swept, McGehee tied the game off right-hander Tony Watson with a double to left-center that scored Jeff Baker and Rafael Furcal.
In the 10th, Furcal led off with a single and Ed Lucas pinch-ran for him. Reed Johnson moved him over with a sacrifice bunt.
Like opponents have done all season, the Pirates elected to walk slugger Giancarlo Stanton -- an early NL MVP candidate -- to face McGehee. It would cost them.
On the second pitch of the at-bat, both runners advanced on a wild pitch. With a 2-2 count, McGehee sent a 93 mph sinker from right-hander Jared Hughes to right for the game-winning sac fly.
