Ask your mom: That former Brewers prospect won 'The Bachelorette'

Monday night was a big night in baseball (aren't they all?): the Diamondbacks squeaked one out against the Reds in the 15th inning, Melky Cabrera smashed a car winshield with his second homer of the game, Vance Worley threw a complete game, four-hit shutout as the Pirates beat the Giants and Andi Dorfman picked former Brewers prospect Josh Murray as the winner of this season of The Bachelorette.

Dorfman had whittled down the field of suitors from 25 bros to two: Nick Viall and Josh Murray. On the morning of the final rose ceremony, Dorfman went to Nick's room to break up with him.

Later, when she told Josh that she had sent Nick home because she was madly in love with him, he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. 

I know all of this because my mom was texting me about the episode as the whole ordeal was playing out in real time.


After the episode aired, Dorfman and Murray were the second and third most important guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live when Clayton Kershaw nailed the host in the face with a (soft) baseball.
