Brew Crew Blasts #6: Ramirez reaches out

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

In the middle of a season to forget, Ramirez hit a home run to remember.

Aramis Ramirez has played 123 games or more in eight of the last ten seasons. Unfortunately, 2013 was one of those exceptions.

A year after hitting 80 extra base hits in 149 games for the Brewers in 2012, Ramirez was limited to just 30 over 92 games in 2013. Two of them came on August 27 against the Pirates, including this fourth inning solo bomb off Jeff Locke:

That ball traveled 432 feet, making it Ramirez's longest homer since September of 2012. It was the longest homer Jeff Locke has ever allowed, and it makes sense a Brewer would hold that record: Milwaukee batters have five of the 20 homers he's allowed as a big leaguer.

The homer was also the 350th of Ramirez's career. It was one of his four hits on the day, and they were all important as the Brewers eked out a 7-6 victory.
