Stat Of The Night: Stopping The Streak

New, comments

Rickie Weeks had a relatively quiet night tonight, going 1-for-3 with a walk in the Brewers' 6-0 win. What's important for our purposes isn't what Weeks did, though: It's what he didn't do.

For the first time all season, Rickie Weeks did not strike out tonight. Including the end of the 2010 season, Weeks had struck out at least one time in each of his last 12 appearances. A strikeout tonight would have tied his career high of 13 games. That streak started during Weeks' cup of coffee with the big club at the end of the 2003 season and didn't end until June of 2005.

With that said, Weeks' streak was nowhere near the longest in Brewer history:

Player Games Start Finish
Geoff Jenkins 26 8/31/2001 10/5/2001
Mike Cameron 20 4/30/2008 5/23/2008
Rob Deer 20 5/13/1989 6/2/1989
Rob Deer 18 8/15/1990 9/3/1990
Gorman Thomas 17 9/2/1979 9/22/1979

Rob Deer also had the eighth, ninth and eleventh longest streaks with two 15's and a 14-gamer in 1986 and 1987.
