Today In Brewer History: A Long Day And A Long Home Run

If you're going to play for four hours and 22 minutes, you might as well win. On this day in 2000 the Brewers and Cubs played the longest nine inning game in National League history, with the Brewers coming out on top 14-8. The two teams combined for 35 hits and 18 walks and used ten pitchers in the game.

The Brewers didn't have a home run in the game but were on base 28 times, with eighteen hits and ten walks. Mark Loretta went 5-for-5 with a walk in the game, becoming one of just ten players in Brewer history to reach base safely six times in a game.
