On this day in 1987 the Brewers beat the Rangers 4-3 when Juan Castillo's walkoff single drove in Glenn Braggs in the bottom of the 12th inning. The game's most significant historical note, though, came in the bottom of the third inning.
Paul Molitor, in his second at bat of the day, singled off Rangers pitcher Jose Guzman to extend his hitting streak to 25 games and gain sole possession of the longest streak in franchise history. Here's what the all-time leaderboard looked like at that point:
Molitor's streak went on for two more weeks before being snapped at 39 games. He's still the only Brewer ever to break 25.
