I've hammered on this point a fair amount the last couple of days, but I wanted to throw one more note out there before moving on.
Last night's win improved the Brewers to 9-5 at home this season, to go with their 6-15 road record. That means they're on pace for a 52-29 home record, which would be one of the best in franchise history, but they're also on pace for a 23-58 road record, which would easily be the worst.
Entering play tonight the Brewers have a .643 winning percentage at home, but are playing just .286 ball on the road. As you might imagine, that's on pace to be easily the largest home-road split in franchise history:
|Season||Home Record||Road Record||% Diff.|
Interestingly enough, the Brewers have seven seasons in franchise history where they were actually better on the road than at home: The most significant example was 1999, when they were 32-48 at County Stadium and 42-39 away from it. 2009 was the last time they broke even: They were 40-41 both at home and on the road.
This team probably isn't as bad as they've looked on the road, but they've got some work to do to avoid setting a rather dubious record.
