With only four games left in the month of May (including tonight’s contest against the Twins) the Milwaukee Brewers need to win at least two of their next four games to avoid matching their all-time worst month in the franchise’s history.
The Brewers are 5-19 in the month of May going into tonight’s game (a winning percentage of .208). The worst month in franchise history was in August 1969 when the Brewers were known as the Seattle Pilots. The team that year in August went 6-22 (a .214 winning percentage). For those purists who don’t want to accept the Pilots record that August, 1969 as part of the Brewers totals, the worst month for ”the” Milwaukee Brewers was a 6-21 month (.222 winning percentage) in both September 1995 and August 2004.
