Today In Brewer History: The Wind Blows Out Everywhere

On this day in 1987 American League batters set a new record by combining for 28 home runs over seven games in one day. The Brewers and Blue Jays were big contributors to the carnage as Robin Yount, Cecil Cooper, Greg Brock, Fred McGriff and George Bell all went deep in Milwaukee's 11-5 win at County Stadium. Yount and Brock's homers came early in the game as the Brewers scored eight times in the first three innings. Cooper added a two run shot in the seventh.

Teddy Higuera was the winning pitcher in that game: He pitched seven innings, allowed four runs on nine hits and tied a career high with 13 strikeouts. That's tied for the third highest single-game total in franchise history:

Pitcher Date Opponent K
Ben Sheets 5/16/2004 Braves 18
Moose Haas 4/12/1978 Yankees 14
Dave Bush 7/10/2008 Rockies 13
Ben Sheets 8/12/2004 Braves 13
Jason Bere 6/29/2000 Phillies 13
