Today In Brewer History: Robin Yount Claims Another Record

On this day in 1980 the Brewers swept a doubleheader at home against the Twins, winning 9-8 and 5-0 to improve to ten games over .500 in front of just 6,039 fans at County Stadium.

Robin Yount went 3-for-9 in the two games, scoring twice, driving in three runs and claiming another piece of history: The second hit was the 1034th of Yount's career, moving him past Don Money and into first place on the Brewer all time list.

Money had collected 1033 hits in his first 997 games as a Brewer, making four All Star appearances and hitting 115 home runs. He went on to play three more partial seasons in Milwaukee but never caught back up with Yount, who broke the Brewer career record at age 25 and still holds it to this day with 3,142.
