Hall Comes Through Again as Brewers Win 3-2

From Sportsline.com:

Bill Hall made a defensive play to save a run in the ninth, and scored the winning run moments later. In between, he even promised he'd end the game.

The versatile Hall made good on his word after a throwing error by Ryan Franklin in the ninth gave the Milwaukee Brewers a 3-2 victory over Philadelphia on Tuesday night.

Waiting for his turn to bat, Hall whispered his thoughts to pitcher Dave Bush.

"I actually promised Bush in the dugout that I was going to do something in the ninth inning, that we were going to have a walk-off win," Hall said.

Damian Miller bunted to the third-base side of the mound and Franklin (1-3) fired wildly to David Bell at third, allowing Hall, who led off the inning with a double, to coast home on the error.

How close was Franklin to getting Hall?

"If he makes a good throw right there, I'm out," Hall said. "But that's what happens when you rush things."
