As you've likely heard by now, all eight Brewer runs scored tonight with two outs. Seven of their eleven hits in the game came after two men had been retired, which was a pretty welcome change.

If it feels like the Brewers haven't typically been coming through with two outs this season, it's because they haven't. Take a look at these splits entering the game:

Situation PA AVG OBP SLG OPS
0 out 369 .235 .296 .396 .693
1 out 370 .258 .317 .452 .768
2 out 327 .184 .266 .347 .613

The Brewers hit .249/.328/.406 for a .734 OPS with two outs last season. Their seven hits with two outs give them 61 on the season. Let me put that another way: Tonight's two out hits represented 11.5% of their season total, despite the fact that this was the Brewers' 30th game.

Prior to tonight's game the Brewers only had 41 two-out RBI all season. They picked up eight tonight.
