Stat Of The Night: Singles Only

PITTSBURGH, PA - SEPTEMBER 19: Carlos Gomez #27 of the Milwaukee Brewers can't hold on to catcher Michael McKenry's double in the second inning.

When Pirate catcher Michael McKenry doubled in the second inning, he was the first opposing player to collect an extra base hit against the Brewers since Saturday. McKenry and Andrew McCutchen (who hit a solo home run in the ninth) were the only players who stood between the Brewers and history tonight.

The Brewer franchise record for most consecutive games without allowing an extra base hit is three. It's been done six times, most recently almost exactly two years ago:

Season Start End Games Opponent(s)
2010 September 15 September 18 3 Astros, Giants
1991 September 4 September 7 3 Athletics, Angels
1989 May 31 June 2 3 Angels, Yankees
1987 August 26 August 28 3 Indians, Twins
1978 August 28 August 31 3 Tigers, Indians
1971 September 2 September 4 3 Royals, Angels

The starting pitchers for the Brewers in the 2010 streak were Dave Bush, Randy Wolf and Yovani Gallardo.

Surprisingly, the Brewers went 1-2 during the 1991 streak despite allowing just three runs over three games.
