Stat Of The Night: Seven Burglaries, Five Thieves


Even if you missed tonight's game by now you've likely heard that the Brewers stole seven bases, part of the reason they were able to score six runs without an extra base hit. You've probably also heard that Ryan Braun had three of those steals, his 25th, 26th and 27th of the season.

After Braun, though, the Brewers had four different players steal exactly one base (Rickie Weeks, Carlos Gomez, Norichika Aoki and Jonathan Lucroy). It was only the tenth time in franchise history they've had five different players steal a base in a game, and the first since 1992:

Date Opponent Players w/ SB
September 27, 1992 Athletics 6
Tonight Pirates 5
August 29, 1992 Blue Jays 5
April 30, 1992 Blue Jays 5
April 8, 1992 Twins 5
July 11, 1990 White Sox 5
July 8, 1990 Angels 5
May 22, 1990 Mariners 5
May 23, 1974 Tigers 5
September 15, 1973 Tigers 5

B.J. Surhoff, Paul Molitor, Pat Listach, Kevin Seitzer, Robin Yount and Darryl Hamilton each had a single steal in the first game on the list, a 5-3 victory.
