MILWAUKEE - Forget the time-honored tradition of a Gatorade bath or the shaving cream pie-in-the-face for players who hit walk-off home runs in baseball.

The Milwaukee Brewers' Carlos Gomez tried something different when teammate Caleb Gindl hit a walk-off home run during the 13th inning of a baseball game against the Miami Marlins on Sunday in Milwaukee -- dousing him in powder.

It was Gindl's first career home run and for sure, it'll be a memorable one.

The Brewers won 1-0 and now Miami has gone a club-record 37 innings without a run, the longest drought by a major league team in 28 years.
