Three-HR games a good sign for Brewers in 2014
The Brewers had four home runs in last night’s 4-3 win over Cincinnati. All of the homers were solo shots (that’s a stat for another time) and it was the first time this season that the Brew Crew had four home runs in a game.
It was the 13th time this season that the Brewers had three or more HRs in a game. Their record in those games: 12-1. The only loss was a July 8 defeat at the hands of the Phillies; the Brewers hit three HRs in that 9-7 loss.
The Brewers 13 games with three-plus HRs rank second in the majors this season. The Toronto Blue Jays have had 14 games with three-plus homers, compiling a 11-3 record in those contests. There have been 182 times this season that a team has hit three or more homers in a game. Teams have won 151 of those games, a .830 winning percentage.
