Today in Brewer History: A Couple Of Notable Tough Losses

There isn't much for positive Brewer history today, but there are a couple of historically notable losses.

First, on this day in 1993 the Brewers lost to the Rangers, 13-2. Reliever Jeff Bronkey, making his major league debut, pitched three scoreless innings to record a rare nine-out save. Bronkey, who would go on to pitch for the Brewers in 1994 and '95, is the only major leaguer ever to be born in Afghanistan.

Then in 2001 Greg Maddux shut out Paul Rigdon and the Brewers in a 1-0 Braves victory, pitching his 100th complete game. Among pitchers who made their major league debut after 1980, Maddux is one of just four pitchers to go the distance 100 times. He finished his career with 109.
