Brewers run producers in extra-inning games
On the last two Saturdays, the Brewers have played an 18-inning game and a 15-inning game.
It got me thinking about which Brewers hitters in their history have statistically been the best when the game goes into extra inning. I looked at three stats: home runs, RBI and batting average.
Here are the Brewers with the most home runs and RBI in extra-inning games played by the Brew Crew, and the players with the highest batting average in those extra-inning contests.
