Today In Brewer History: 15 K's, But No W

On this day in 1987 the Orioles rode a four-run fourth inning to a 5-4 win over the Brewers. Paul Molitor homered in the ninth inning to extend his hitting streak to 28 games but it wasn't enough as the Crew fell just short.

The Orioles scored five runs in the game despite the fact that 15 of their 24 outs were recorded via strikeout. Chris Bosio started the game and recorded a career-high 12 K's over seven innings. He was followed to the mound by Mark Clear, who struck out the side in the ninth.

Every Oriole batter who appeared in the game struck out at least once, but second baseman Billy Ripken was the only player to go down on strikes three times. The 15 K's in the game were the most Brewer pitchers have ever recorded in a loss.

With help from the B-Ref Play Index, happy birthday today to:

  • 2009 Brewer and current Nashville Sound Corey Patterson, who turns 33.
  • La Crosse, Wisconsin native and UW-Oshkosh alum Jarrod Washburn, who turns 38. He played 12 major league seasons between 1998-2009 as a member of the Angels and two other teams.

  • 1990 Brewer Dennis Powell, who turns 49.
  • Seattle Pilot and 1970 Brewer Fred Stanley, who turns 65. We covered his birthday in this space last year.
