It might not have been as dramatic as Sean Halton's home run but Logan Schafer's bunt Tuesday night was just as effective.

Schafer lifted the Milwaukee Brewers to their second walk-off victory in three days by coming off the bench and dropping down a picture-perfect suicide squeeze with the bases loaded to beat the Chicago Cubs 4-3.

"A walk-off is a walk-off" Schafer said. "It felt good that I was able to get a bad pitch down. I was expecting something closer to the plate but you have to make sacrifices so I kind of jumped across the plate to do whatever I could to get it down."

Facing reliever Justin Grimm Aramis Ramirez led off the bottom of the ninth with a walk and Carlos Gomez followed with a single to center that moved pinch runner Jeff Bianchi to second.

Scooter Gennett then dropped down a two-strike bunt that Grimm muffed allowing Gennett to reach to load the bases. The rookie failed on his first two attempts to lay one down putting the pressure on himself to succeed on the third.

"It was the same as if I was 0-0" he said. "Those two first pitches I tried to bunt were probably out of the zone so that's probably the reason I didn't execute there. I mean I was relaxed but I'm sure the dugout was freaking out.

"I didn't mean to make it that suspenseful."

Caleb Gindl Monday's offensive star followed by popping out to shortstop.

With Halton Sunday's walk-off hero due up next manager Ron Roenicke made the call for the left-handed-hitting Schafer to face the right-handed Grimm. Bunting with the bases loaded isn't exactly conventional but the skipper believed the situation warranted the gamble.

"Bases loaded its not ideal" Roenicke admitted.

"I have to think about it when we have the bases loaded because it's a flip and a force play at home. It's so much easier than having to tag at home so most guys won't do it there. I really thought Caleb was going to come through with a long fly ball but I had the perfect situation and the count 1-1 was a tough count to pitch out in so I liked the matchup there."

After taking a pair of fastballs Schafer got a curveball on Grimm's third offering that he had to lunge out over the plate to connect with as Bianchi charged home. Grimm didn't appear to be expecting a bunt so Bianchi was sliding into home around the same time Grimm reached the baseball.

"I saw how Justin Grimm kind of caught it (and said) 'Now what do I do?' Then he kind of hesitated and threw it to first" said Schafer. "That is pretty surprising."

"With the bases loaded and one out you aren't really thinking suicide squeeze. I pride myself on all facets of the game especially bunting. I knew I had that ability and the coaching staff had that call. It worked out well."
