Today In Brewer History: Higuera Wins Again

In 1986, Teddy Higuera had the best season of his major league career. As a 27 year old, he went 20-11 with a 2.79 ERA for the Brewers, making his lone All Star appearance and finishing second in the AL Cy Young voting despite the fact that the Brewers went just 77-84 as a team and finished in sixth place.

In 1987 Higuera picked right up where he left off, earning up the win in each of his first three appearances as the Brewers raced off to a 13-0 start. And on April 24 of that season he made it four straight by pitching a complete game against the Orioles, allowing four runs on seven hits with two walks and a six strikeouts. To this day, Higuera is the only Brewer pitcher to pick up the win in his first four appearances of the season.
