Box Score of the Week (The 2,000th post on this blog!)

The Milwaukee Brewers hosted the Cleveland Indians at the old Milwaukee County Stadium - August 26, 1987.


Only six players in MLB history have ever had hitting streaks of at least 40 consecutive games. Going in to this contest, the Brewers' Paul Molitor had hit in 39 straight. He was 0 for 4 when the game entered the 10th inning. The game ended in the bottom of the tenth when Rick Manning knocked in the game-winning run......with Molitor in the on deck circle.

This one I know -- the end of Paul Molitor's hitting streak.
