Today In Brewer History: An Eleven-Run Seventh

On this day in 1997 the Brewers had one of the worst innings in franchise history. They already trailed the Tigers heading into the seventh when Bobby Higginson singled to lead off the inning, the first of eleven Detroit hits in the inning. By the time the dust had cleared eleven Tigers had scored and they now led 16-1.

This game was only the 14th time in franchise history the Brewers had allowed 16 runs in a game. They've done it ten more times since.
