Today In Brewer History: Bringing A Doc To The House

On this day in 1982 the Brewers held a 4.5 game lead in the AL East, but they were still making moves to improve the team for the stretch run. 29 years ago today they claimed starting pitcher Doc Medich off waivers from the Rangers.

Medich was 33 years old and playing his eleventh (and final) major league season when the Brewers purchased him. They were his seventh big league organization, but would turn out to be his only playoff team. He made ten starts down the stretch for the Crew and posted a 5.00 ERA, providing three quality starts and two disasters. His most notable game as a Brewer might have been September 6, when he pitched all ten innings of a 6-5 Brewer loss.

Medich made his final professional appearance and the only postseason appearance of his career in Game 6 of the 1982 World Series, allowing six runs on five hits over two relief innings in a 13-1 Brewer loss.
