Today In Brewer History: Walking The Plank In Pittsburgh

In recent years the Brewers have largely dominated the Pirates, but it's worth noting that it hasn't always been that way. On this day in 2006 the Brewers dropped their third consecutive game in Pittsburgh, and had been outscored 32-5 over those three days.

Pirate infielder Jose Castillo was the star of the series, hitting four home runs in the first three games. This was part of a streak where he hit six home runs in five games, representing nearly half of his full season total (14). The Pirates completed a four game sweep of the Brewers the next day, and went 9-7 against the Crew that season.
