Today In Brewer History: Extending The Streak

New, comment

On this day in 1988, the Brewers were playing their second of a three game series in Baltimore. Behind home runs from Glenn Braggs and Robin Yount and a five out save from Dan Plesac, the Brewers picked up an 8-6 victory.

The Brewers, however, weren't the story on this day. The loss dropped the Orioles to 0-14, setting a new major league record. But Baltimore was nowhere near done: They also lost their next seven to open 0-21, going winless for the first 13% of the season.

The Brewers played a pretty significant part in the streak: With two wins in the season-opening series in Baltimore and three more in this series, the Crew hung five losses on the Orioles during the drought, outscoring them by a combined total of 39-13.

With help from Brewerfan.net and the B-Ref Play Index, happy birthday today to:

(You might have noticed that there's another streak in Brewer history we haven't mentioned this week. Stop back tomorrow for a very special post on it.)
