Today In Brewer History: Rickie Weeks Is A (100) Run Scorer

On this day one year ago the Brewers dropped a 5-2 decision to the Reds, falling to eleven games under .500 and 15 back in the NL Central with 13 games to play. While most of the Brewers were having a pretty poor day Rickie Weeks was on base three times, and his two runs scored made him just the second second baseman in franchise history to score 100 in a season.

The other second baseman to reach 100 was Fernando Vina, who scored 101 times in 1998. Weeks finished the season with 112, the eighth highest total in franchise history. Only Paul Molitor (four times), Robin Yount (two times) and Ryan Braun (one time) have scored more.

Missing time due to injury is going to cost Weeks a shot at back-to-back 100 run seasons: He's averaging a run scored about once every 6.7 appearances this season (the same pace as 2010), but isn't going to come anywhere near the 754 trips to the plate he made last year, when he played in 160 games.

With help from Brewerfan.net, happy birthday today to:

And happy anniversary to third baseman Jim Tatum and outfielder Corey Patterson, who had their only Brewer hits on this day in 1992 and 2009, respectively.
