Today In Brewer History: Aaron's Last Walkoff

The Brewers got this day in 1976 off to a good start, scoring five runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to beat the Rangers 6-3 in game one of a doubleheader at County Stadium. George Scott homered in the game and Jim Slaton went the distance, allowing three runs on four hits and striking out ten.

The more notable moment, however, happened in the day's second game. The Brewers scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth of that game to force extra innings, and Hank Aaron's one-out solo home run in the bottom of the tenth gave them a walkoff victory.

The home run was Aaron's ninth of the season, 754th of his career and his only walkoff homer in his two seasons as a member of the Brewers. This was also the final of 14 extra inning homers in Aaron's career. Nine days later, Aaron would hit his 755th and final homer off Angels pitcher Dick Drago.
