Today in Brewer History: Yount Grabs Another Record

What do you give the man who holds nearly every career record? The record he doesn't have, of course.

On this day in 1988 the Brewers beat the Tigers 3-1, and the final run scored in the seventh inning when Robin Yount doubled home Jim Gantner. That was Yount's 15th RBI of the season and the 945th of his career, pushing him past Cecil Cooper and into first place on the Brewers' all time list. Cooper had just retired the previous winter with 944 runs batted in. Cooper and Yount had been 1-2 on the career list since the two of them passed Gorman Thomas in 1983.

Thomas is now sixth on the Brewers' all time list, although Prince Fielder will probably pass him sometime this season:

Player RBI
Robin Yount 1406
Cecil Cooper 944
Paul Molitor 790
Geoff Jenkins 704
Ben Oglivie 685
Gorman Thomas 605

With help from the B-Ref Play Index, happy birthday today to George Kottaras, who turns 28.
