Stat Of The Night: Stealamania Running Wild

In the fifth inning tonight Norichika Aoki stole third base. It was his 12th steal of the season, putting him on pace for 20 in his rookie campaign.

Carlos Gomez stole his 18th base tonight and Ryan Braun stole his 18th in the same inning, so they're both also on pace to reach 20. If all three of them make it, it'll only be the fourth time in Brewer history the Brewers have had three players each swipe 20 or more bags:

Season Players with >20 SB SB Counts
1988 4 Paul Molitor (41), Robin Yount (22), B.J. Surhoff (21), Jim Gantner (20)
1992 3 Pat Listach (54), Darryl Hamilton (41), Paul Molitor (31)
1989 3 Paul Molitor (27), Mike Felder (26), Jim Gantner (20)

Rickie Weeks (7 SB to this point) and Nyjer Morgan (8) also have an outside chance to reach 20.

The only Brewer to reach 20 steals in 2011 was Ryan Braun, who had 33. No Brewer had 20 steals in 2010.
