New, 2 comments
Presswire

In tonight's loss to the Pirates, both Rickie Weeks and Travis Ishikawa had three strikeouts in the loss. It was the 34th and 35th times this season where a Brewer had a game where he struck out three times. At this point, that is tied for the 15th most in franchise history. The record for number of three strikeout games in a season is 55, set by the 2006 Brewers. Here is a list of the top 15:

Year Player Games with 3 Ks
2006 55
2001 54
2004 54
2000 50
2007 49
2008 46
2003 46
2010 46
2005 45
2002 42
2009 42
1988 42
1986 41
1987 36
1996 35
2012 35

Here is a list of the top offenders in 2012:

Player Games with 3 Ks
Rickie Weeks 8
Corey Hart 7
Carlos Gomez 5
Ryan Braun 5
Cody Ransom 4
Travis Ishikawa 3
George Kottaras 1
Nyjer Morgan 1

If the Brewers keep up their current pace, they will have 65 of these games in 2012, easily shattering the mark from 2006.
