Lots of things have gone wrong for the Brewers in 2012, but in the end you can sum up their struggles with one sentence: When they don't homer, they don't win. Tonight's game was the Brewers' 62nd of the season and the 21st time they haven't hit a home run. Tonight's loss dropped them to 3-18 in those games.
It's not unusual (and completely expected) for the Brewers to be better when they homer than they are when they don't. It's pretty rare, however, for them to be this terrible in those games. They're on pace to post easily the worst winning percentage in homerless games in franchise history:
|Season||0 HR Games||Wins||Losses||Win%|
In a weird side note, the 1992 Brewers hold the franchise record with 102 homerless games. They still won 92 games that season.
