Today In Brewer History: Six Hits For Reimer, And One For A Reliever

On this day in 1993 the Brewers swept a doubleheader against Tony LaRussa and the A's. They won the first game 9-2 on eight unanswered runs in the final two innings, then came back to win the nightcap 7-6 in 13 innings. Both games would've been great to watch, but the second featured a couple of notes of historical significance.

First, in the second game DH Kevin Reimer went 6-for-6 with an intentional walk. He singled to lead off the second and scored, singled in the fourth and scored, singled in the fifth, doubled in the seventh, doubled in the ninth, was walked intentionally in the eleventh and singled in the 13th before scoring the game-winning run on Dave Nilsson's walkoff single. Reimer is one of two Brewers (joining John Briggs) with six hits in a game, and also one of two (joining Prince Fielder) to get on base seven times.

Late in the game, though, Reimer moved from DH into the outfield and forced Brewer pitchers to hit for the remainder of the game. As such, Brewer reliever Matt Maysey received the only at bat of his major league career in the 13th, and singled. He was the first Brewer pitcher to get a hit in 14 years, and the last to do so in the American League.

With help from the B-Ref Play Index, happy birthday today to 2000 and 2002 Brewer Everett Stull. He turns 41.

Today is also the 43rd anniversary of Jim Bouton, the author of Ball Four, being traded from the Pilots to the Astros. We covered that event in this space last year.
