Michael Fiers couldn't have been much better in his first major league start tonight, holding the Dodgers to a single run and needing just 89 pitches to complete seven innings. Brewer starting pitchers have completed seven or more innings 15 times this season, but Fiers is the first to do it in under 90 pitches and only the third in under 100:

Pitcher Date Opponent IP Pitches
Michael Fiers May 29 Dodgers 7 89
Zack Greinke April 7 Cardinals 7 91
Yovani Gallardo April 17 Dodgers 7 97

However, Fiers' outing tonight was nowhere near a Brewer franchise record. Since pitch counts became an official stat the Brewers have had six pitchers complete at least seven innings while throwing less than 75 pitches. One of them even worked eight innings:

Pitcher Date Opponent IP Pitches
Chris Capuano August 11, 2006 Braves 7 68
Dave Bush August 16, 2008 Dodgers 7 71
Chris Bosio September 14, 1992 Red Sox 8 71
Chris Bosio July 16, 1991 Twins 7 72
Jose Mercedes July 29, 1997 Blue Jays 7 73
Steve Woodard September 24, 1998 Dodgers 7 74
