My understanding is that the kid started celebrating after the last out he recorded...then a teammate had to tell him that the Marlins hadn't scored yet! He assumed they had.

Everyone knows that after 9 innings, if runs are even, hits are the first tiebreaker

A similar thing happened to Pirates pitcher Harvey Haddix in the game where he pitched 12 perfect innings only to lose the game in the 13th. He was convinced he'd walked somebody during the game.
