Biographical Information[edit]

Corbin Burnes was the winner in Game 3 of the NLDS between the Milwaukee Brewers and Colorado Rockies on October 7, 2018. He faced 6 batters in the 7th and 8th innings of the game with a 4-0 lead and retired all 6 of them in order. He was granted the win by the official scorer because starting pitcher Wade Miley had failed to complete the required 5 innings and he had been the most effective of the five relievers used by the Brewers that day. He had pitched earlier in Game 1 and been just as good as the Brewers swept the Rockies in three games. In the regular season, he had gone 7-0, 2.61 in 30 relief appearances after making his debut on July 10th, forming part of a shutdown bullpen also comprising Josh Hader, Corey Knebel, Jeremy Jeffress and Joakim Soria.
