Today In Brewer History: Hart Stopped

On this day in 2010 the Giants beat the Brewers 6-1 at Miller Park. It was the third contest in a five game losing streak where the Crew scored just eight total runs. The Brewers managed just four hits on this day and none of them came from Corey Hart, who went 0-for-4 to snap a 20-game hitting streak. Hart hit .360/.389/.547 over those 20 games with ten doubles and a pair of home runs.

At the time Hart's streak was the fifth longest in Brewer history, but it was only the second longest of his career:

Player Season Games
Paul Molitor 1987 39
Dave May 1973 24
Ryan Braun* 2011 23
Corey Hart 2007 22
Cecil Cooper 1980 22
Corey Hart 2010 20

* - Streak hadn't happened yet at this point.

One day after this streak ended Hart started another nine game streak. He finished the year with a .283/.340/.525 line and 31 home runs.
