It was no secret that the 2023 Milwaukee Brewers offense struggled at certain points during last season. But when they were on, they were on.

The Brewers scored double digit runs 10 times last season and scored either eight or nine runs another 11 times. It should be no surprise that the Crew went a perfect 21-0 when they scored at least eight runs in a game.

A handful of those games ended up being particularly large blowouts much to the delight of Brewers fans. As we enter the year 2024, let's take a look back on the five largest such Milwaukee wins of the 2023 season.

Monday, April 3rd - Brewers 10, Mets 0

Fresh off a season opening series win on the road against the Cubs, the Brewers returned to Wisconsin for their home opener against the New York Mets. And boy did they put on a show for the Milwaukee faithful.

The Brewers flattened the Mets 10-0 as Freddy Peralta threw six shutout innings to pick up the win and eight of nine members of the starting lineup picked up hits on the day. The day was punctuated when rookie Brice Turang launched a grand slam in the fifth inning of his home debut.

Monday, August 7th - Brewers 12, Rockies 1

The Brewers entered their August home series against the Colorado Rockies looking to avenge a series sweep they suffered on the road back in the beginning of May. Milwaukee would end up winning the series rematch and kicked it off with a bang in the first game.

Peralta was at it again, holding the Rockies to a single home run, their only hit of the game, over seven innings and tying a career high with 13 strikeouts. Three Brewers went deep on the day (Turang, Tyrone Taylor, Sal Frelick) while William Contreras added three hits and three RBIs.

Monday, September 11th - Brewers 12, Marlins, 0

It's not often that Brewers fans get to see their starters throw complete games, let alone complete game shutouts. They finally got to see one for the first time in over two years on September 11th, and at home no less.

Now former Brewers starter Brandon Woodruff dazzled for nine scoreless innings, holding the Marlins to six hits and a walk while striking out seven. Milwaukee turned it into a blowout on the back of a homer by DH Mark Canha, a pair of RBI's by Taylor, and a two-double, four-RBI game by shortstop Willy Adames.

Thursday, August 3rd - Brewers 14, Pirates 1

One of the main goals for the Brewers coming out of the trade deadline was to not suffer another meltdown like they did the prior season. Three days after the deadline, a blowout win at home against the Pittsburgh Pirates helped make sure that didn't happen.

Six different Brewers had multi-hit games, led by Turang and Christian Yelich who had three apiece. Four Milwaukee players had doubles on the day while rookies Turang and Frelick added matching three-run homers.

Friday, September 22nd - Brewers 16, Marlins 1

The Brewers' biggest blowout of the season once again came on the road at the expense at the Marlins. Most importantly, it was the day that the Brewers clinched the NL Central division title and guaranteed a return to the playoffs.

Yelich was the star on offense as he went 3-for-4, scored four runs, slugged two homers, and drove in five runs. But the highlight of the night arguably was when fan favorite first baseman Rowdy Tellez pitched the final inning of relief, actually striking out a batter as the Crew closed out the win in Miami.
