Today In Brewer History: Yount, Cooper and Oglivie's 1-2-3 punch

The Brewers blew a game open with some midday fireworks 31 years ago today.

On this day in 1982 the Brewers carried a one-run lead into the top of the seventh inning against the A's, but quickly expanded on it. With one out in the inning Robin Yount homered, hitting his fifth of the season. Cecil Cooper immediately followed with his tenth, and the next man to the plate was Ben Oglivie and he also hit his tenth. Back-to-back-to-back homers gave the Brewers some breathing room, but Gorman Thomas and Ted Simmons also went back-to-back in the ninth to ice an 11-3 victory.

All told the Brewers had 17 hits in the game, including one home run for each of their 2-6 hitters.

With help from Brewerfan.net and the B-Ref Play Index, we'd like to wish a happy birthday today to:

Today is also the sixth anniversary of a 2007 game against the Cubs where Aramis Ramirez tied a record by getting a hit in his 18th consecutive Miller Park game. We covered that event in this space last year.
