Today In Brewer History: Coming All The Way Back

It's worth noting that Brewer attendance numbers have come a long way over the last decade. This season it draws attention when crowds at Miller Park dip below 25 or 30,000, but on this day in 2000 just 3913 fans paid to witness a doubleheader at County Stadium between the Brewers and Astros.

As luck would have it, game one of that doubleheader featured one of the greatest comebacks you'll ever see. The Brewers scored two in the bottom of the first inning in that game but went to the ninth trailing 9-2. Needing seven runs to tie, the Brewers put this inning together:

The Brewers walked off with a win in the bottom of the tenth when Jose Hernandez hit a solo home run to finish off a 10-9 victory. The Brewers, who were down seven runs entering the bottom of the ninth and down three runs with two outs in the inning, came back to sweep the doubleheader with a 6-1 win in game two.
