Today In Brewer History: BaKKKKer

All told, this day in 2008 was a pretty good one for the Brewers. They finally beat the Twins at Miller Park, avoiding a sweep at home and continuing a month where they went 16-10. For one inning, though, they were the most offensively inept team in Brewer history.

Scott Baker was on the mound for the Twins on this day, and he opened up the third inning by striking out Ryan Braun swinging. Prince Fielder followed Braun and also struck out swinging, but reached first base on a wild pitch. Russell Branyan and Mike Cameron followed, and they each struck out looking on three pitches. Baker was the first Twin ever to record four strikeouts in an inning. 

Fortunately, the Brewer bats did wake up eventually: Mike Cameron hit a two run homer in the sixth inning and the Crew won 4-2. Seth McClung started and pitched six innings for the win, and Brian Shouse, Guillermo Mota and Salomon Torres each pitched scoreless innings in relief.
