Today In Brewer History: Haas Holds Them To One

On this day in 1985 the Brewers beat the Yankees 6-0 on a Saturday at Yankee Stadium. The Brewers' 1-6 batters each scored a single run to power a balanced attack, and knocked ten hits against future Hall of Famer Phil Niekro and relievers.

The Brewers' big story on the day, however, came from the mound: Moose Haas carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning before Don Mattingly doubled to break it up, and pitched just the fourth complete game one-hitter in franchise history.

The Brewers still only have seven one-hitters as a franchise, and more than half of them came in two seasons:

Pitcher Date Opponent
Skip Lockwood May 30, 1972 Yankees
Skip Lockwood August 1, 1972 Tigers
Jim Colborn May 9, 1973 Rangers
Moose Haas June 29, 1985 Yankees
Danny Darwin August 19, 1985 Twins
Teddy Higuera September 1, 1987 Royals
CC Sabathia August 31, 2008 Pirates

This was one of the last of Haas' great performances as a Brewer. It was his eighth of eight complete game shutouts, and the 90th of his 91 wins for Milwaukee. Following the season the team traded him to Oakland.

With help from Brewerfan.net and the B-Ref Play Index, happy birthday today to:

Today is also the 21st anniversary of Teddy Higuera's last start in 1991 before being diagnosed with a torn rotator cuff that basically ended his career as an effective starting pitcher. We covered that event in this space last year.
