Today In Brewer History: Hart Drives In Seven

On Sunday Jonathan Lucroy tied a Brewer franchise record by driving in seven runs in the Crew's 16-4 win over the Twins. It was the sixth time in franchise history a player has driven in seven runs in a game, and came almost a year to the day after the last time it had happened.

On this day in 2011, Corey Hart was really struggling. He had spent most of the month of April on the DL with an oblique injury and hit just .237/.275/.329 over his first 21 games after coming back. He picked up the pace with this night's game, though, clubbing three home runs as the Brewers routed the Nationals 11-3.

Hart's first home run came in the first inning, as he took Tom Gorzelanny deep to give the Crew a 2-0 lead. He went deep off Gorzelanny again in the fifth, improving the advantage to 5-1. His final blast was a three-run shot off Doug Slaten in the eighth, blowing the game open at 10-1.

Hart also walked in the third inning and stole a base in the game. From that day through the end of the season he was a .293/.370/.543 hitter.
