Of course last night's game went a lot better than anyone expected based on the recent lack of Interleague success and how bad the team plays when the game is nationally televised - especially after going down by five runs - twice.
But if you take away last night's rousing success, Interleague hasn't seemed to be going so well for the Brewers.
Not sure about anyone else, but I've got a really low opinion of Interleague games, mostly because it feels like the Brewers never perform well, so I compiled a list of the team's record each season since Interleague play started.

Turns out, it's not that bad. Clearly, it's not great, but it's better than I thought it was going to be. I didn't remember having a winning record in 2007 and I lived in another state in 2001 and 2002, so I missed out on the pain that was a combined 7-20 record. But overall, my impression that the Brewers have been complete crap in Interleague was easily proven false, no matter how hard it was to believe.

Or getting no-hit in
But the best I could figure, the Crew is 4-
Here’s the games I compiled:
I know I missed some games in there, but I was doing my research while watching last night's game and understandably got a little side-tracked at times. If anyone else has some to add to the list, please do, but I doubt any other unearthed wins will help dull the pain of the performance of this team when all eyes are on them.
