June 9: Reds 7, Brewers 3 – Willy. four shots
Willy Adames already has a couple of four successful nights for the Brewers in just 17 games with his new team, and it shouldn’t be that easy.

June 6: Brewers 2, D-backs 0 – Burnes touches on history
The Brewers have had some good strikeout pitchers in their history, but they’ve never had anyone with the pinpoint accuracy Corbin Burnes has shown this season.

June 5: Brewers 7, D-backs 5 – Finish Woodruff’s QS series
Brandon Woodruff’s streak of quality starts ended at 10, the longest streak of at least six innings and three or fewer points earned since CC Sabathia scored 13 in a row during her incredible run with the Brewers in 2008. Woodruff would have to keep going long to reach the single-season Major League record, which is shared by a pair of former Cardinals pitchers. Bob Gibson (1968) and Chris Carpenter (2005) made 22 consecutive quality starts in just one year.
“I wish every release could be a quality start,” Woodruff said. “You learn more from this by fighting [five innings], than you would do for six, seven innings and kind of child’s play. “
June 4: Brewers 5, D-backs 1 – Five outs from history
According to Elias, Freddy Peralta was the first Brewers pitcher to come close to five outs from a no-hitter since Dave Bush in April 2009 in Philadelphia, and the eighth pitcher in franchise history (which includes the 1969 Seattle Pilots). to get that far.

April 29, 1969: Marty Pattin vs. Angels (two out in octave)
July 5, 1979: Lary Sorensen to the Yankees (one out of eight)
September 5, 1981: Jim Slaton to the Twins (no eliminated in ninth place)
April 15, 1987: Nieves in Orioles (no-hitter)
1 September 1987: Teddy Higuera at the Royals (two eliminated in the eighth)
May 28, 1988: Odell Jones to the Indians (one out of ninth)
April 23, 2009: Bush at Phillies (one out of eight)
June 3: Brewers 7, D-backs 4 – The crew is happy for the homer
With five home runs in Tuesday’s defeat to the Tigers and four more in Thursday’s win against the D-backs, the Brewers have hit at least four home runs in consecutive games for the ninth time in franchise history, and only the third time at Miller Park. / He was from American Family Field – although neither of the above was home. They also did so on August 17-18, 2019, in Washington, and June 11-12, 2008, in Houston. There were also four consecutive home away games to Detroit and New York in 1992.
But to find the last resort at home, you have to go back to July 16-17, 1983, against the Twins at County Stadium. The names are great; Bill Schroeder, Jim Gantner, Paul Molitor and Robin Yount scored one night, and Gantner and Molitor went deep again with two home runs from Cecil Cooper the next. It was the only time in Gantner’s 17-year Major League career that he scored home runs in consecutive games.
June 1: Tigers 10, Brewers 7 – Quartet full of energy
Milwaukee’s Kolten Wong and Tyrone Taylor and Detroit’s Eric Haase and Jonathan Schoop all hit two homers each while Tigers and Brewers combined to equal a modern Major League record: four players with more home runs in the same game.

Before that, it hadn’t happened since a Rockies-Expos game at Coors Field in 1999.
