Milwaukee Brewers Stats Of The Month


The first month of the season is somehow already behind us. After an abysmal start in which the Milwaukee Brewers went 2-8, they turned it around thanks to Jean Segura and Yuniesky Betancourt. The Brewers finished April with a 14-11 record, going 11-3 over their final 14 games.

Overall, it was a successful month. From Carlos Gomez showing why he deserves that multi-year extension he received to Brewers fans thanking the Los Angeles Angeles of Anaheim for giving them Jean Segura, April was a good month (except for Rickie Weeks and John Axford).

I love statistics. While I may not be what people call a “sabermetrician”, I still know to dig deeper than the average box score.

At the end of each month, I will be putting together a list of mostly unknown statistics that I find interesting. Here is the first batch of statistics for the month of April.

  • 35 infield hits – 2nd-most
  • 15.5% HR/FB ratio - 3rd-highest
