After being owned by Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman for the last three seasons the Milwaukee Brewers experienced some hard-earned success Friday night.

Jonathan Lucroy belted a two-run walk-off home run off the left-handed fireballer to propel the Brewers to a 7-6 victory over their National League Central Division rival in a back-and-forth game at Miller Park.

It was the first career walk-off homer for Lucroy who finished the night 3 for 5 with three runs batted in and two runs scored.

"It feels good" Lucroy said. "He has really good stuff special arm. It just feels good to get the win. We kind of had a rough game throwing the ball. It feels good to get a win hitting-wise."

Cincinnati went ahead 6-5 on a two-out RBI single by Todd Frazier in the seventh inning. It was the third baseman's fourth RBI of the game and it appeared as if it would hold up with Chapman coming into the game.

He opened by facing Jean Segura who worked a full count from the big Cuban before hitting a dribbler to shortstop. Zack Cozart charged fielded it and fired to first but Joey Votto was unable to hang on and Segura was safe with his major-league-leading 37th infield hit.

That brought Lucroy to the plate. The Brewers catcher was actually the first batter Chapman ever faced in the major leagues in 2010 and Lucroy was 0 for 5 with five strikeouts in his career against him before Friday night.

"He was throwing 105 because he was all excited" Lucroy recounted. "That wasn't cool."

Chapman fell behind 1-0 before Lucroy fouled off the next five offerings — all fastballs the last three of which were clocked at 99 mph.

On the seventh pitch Chapman hung a slider that Lucroy jumped all over sending it into the bleachers in left field for his 17th homer. The shot sparked a furious celebration on the field and among what remained of the 33037 who were in attendance.

"He has to get ahead with his fastball and try and bury his slider" Lucroy said. "That's what he was trying to do I'm sure. He's struck me out there before on a backdoor slider. That one just hung up."
