Today In Brewer History: A Hot Streak For The Ages

One year ago today the Brewers beat the Dodgers 3-1 at Miller Park. Jerry Hairston Jr. put the Crew ahead in the sixth with a two-run single and Zack Greinke allowed just one run over seven innings for the win. The victory improved the Brewers to 73-51 on the season and gave them 19 wins in a 21 game stretch for the first time in franchise history.

The Brewers' hot streak really didn't have much to do with their offense: They scored just 4.7 runs per game during the streak and scored three runs or less in seven of the 19 wins. Their pitching, however, was dominant: They posted a 2.16 ERA during the hot streak and held their opponents to two runs or less in two thirds of the 21 games.

The Brewers lost the next day but won again two days later to start another streak of eight wins in ten games.
