Today In Brewer History: Tyler Houston In Triplicate

Tyler Houston was, all told, a pretty good but somewhat forgettable Brewer. He signed with the Crew as a free agent before the 2000 season and spent most of three years in Milwaukee, hitting .279/.326/.475 over 252 games. 2000 was perhaps his best season as a Brewer, as he split time between first base, third base and catcher and showed flashes of massive power.

On this day in 2000, one of those flashes was on full display. On a Sunday afternoon at County Stadium, Houston homered in each of his first three at bats. Each home run was a two-run shot, and Houston's six RBI powered the Brewers to a 10-3 win over the Tigers. The performance drove his OPS up 92 points in one day.

Houston only hit 37 home runs in his three seasons as a Brewer, making him one of just three players with a three homer game and less than 100 Brewer home runs:
