Though the throwing error went to Quiroz, rendering the decisive run unearned, the loss went to Dan Cortes, and it's hard to say he didn't deserve it. Cortes inherited a three-run lead in the eighth and promptly threw nine consecutive balls, walking two, allowing a single, and giving the lead away before escaping the inning. He then returned for the ninth and, while he got the first two guys out, he walked Mitch Moreland and struck out Cruz on a pitch that was essentially uncatchable. The curve dropped at least a good foot in front of home plate before bouncing off, away from everybody. Cortes' final line reads 42 pitches - 18 strikes - 24 balls - and he was exactly as wild as that seems, if not moreso.

via Lookout Landing - Cortes earns first loss in amazing walkoff strikeout (emphasis mine).
