In what's becoming an increasingly alarming trend, Rickie Weeks didn't bring anything to the table offensively tonight. He struck out in each of his four plate appearances, raising his season total to 48 in 37 Brewer games. He's on pace to strike out 210 times this season, which would be the third highest mark in National League history.

Weeks has multiple strikeouts in eight of his last eleven appearances (and one of the others was a single plate appearance as a pinch hitter). This is the eighteenth time he's had multiple K's in a game this season, which is already tied for the 118th highest single-season total in Brewer franchise history. He's on pace to do it 79 times this season, which would blow away the franchise record:

Hitter Season Multi-K Games
Rob Deer 1987 62
Jose Hernandez 2002 58
Rob Deer 1986 54
Jose Hernandez 2001 53
Rickie Weeks 2010 50

Weeks only had 30 multi-K games in all of 2011.
