The 2007 Milwaukee Brewers season marked the 25th anniversary of the Milwaukee Brewers winning the American League Championship and the 50th anniversary of the Milwaukee Braves winning the World Series.[1] During the offseason, the Brewers re-signed free agents Bill Hall and Chris Capuano. The Brewers were also able to sign starting pitcher Jeff Suppan, second-baseman Craig Counsell, and third baseman Tony Graffanino from free agency.[2]

The Brewers finished in second place in the National League Central with a record of 83–79,[3] achieving their first winning record since 1992.[4]

Offseason

The Brewers headed into the season celebrating the 25th anniversary of their American League Championship. They prepared for the season by hosting reunions and premiering a video of the 1982 team at the Pabst Theater. The Brewers announced they would celebrate the 1982 team on "Retro Fridays" by having fan give-aways relating to the pennant-winning team.[5] Milwaukee also celebrated the 50th anniversary of the 1957 Milwaukee Braves victory in the World Series.[1][6]

During the offseason, the Milwaukee Brewers increased their payroll from $54.5 million to $68 million, a significant amount for a small-market team. The Brewers re-signed arbitration-eligible pitcher Chris Capuano, whose salary increased from $450,000 to $3.25 million, and arbitration-eligible Bill Hall, who signed a four-year, $24 million contract, largest on the team. Both were members of the Brewers team in 2006. The Brewers were able to acquire free agent starting pitcher Jeff Suppan from the St. Louis Cardinals by signing him to a four-year, $42 million deal. They also signed second-baseman Craig Counsell[7] of the Arizona Diamondbacks and third-baseman Tony Graffanino of the Kansas City Royals off of free agency.[2]

Season summary

Strong start of the season

Bill Hall hits a home run on opening day against the Dodgers

The Brewers 2007 season began with a 7-1 victory on opening day over the Los Angeles Dodgers behind a complete game two-hitter by starting-pitcher Ben Sheets, becoming the first Brewer pitcher to throw a complete game on opening day since 1979.[9] The Brewers would win their next game before dropping three in a row, including one to the Dodgers and the first two games of a three-game series with the Chicago Cubs. With a record of .500 after the first homestand of the season, the Brewers went on the road to win two games of a three-game set with the Florida Marlins. Continuing their road trip, the Brewers split games against the Cardinals after the first game of the series was postponed due to rain. After splitting games with the Cincinnati Reds, the Brewers moved into first place in the NL Central. The Brewers returned to Miller Park to win four of their next five games, sweeping the Pittsburgh Pirates and winning twice against the Houston Astros.

The Brewers played on the road for their next six games, winning two of three games against both the Cubs and Astros. The Brewers finished the month of April with a win against the Cardinals, in which Brewers starting pitcher Jeff Suppan pitched a complete game. During this game all players wore a special black "32" patch on their left arms to commemorate recently deceased Cardinals pitcher Josh Hancock. Suppan's win gave him four on the season, tying him with Chris Capuano for the team lead after April. Brewers closer Francisco Cordero recorded a franchise record and league-leading ten saves in the month of April. Cordero finished April without allowing an earned run in twelve appearances. The Brewers ended the month with a 3½ game lead in the NL Central.

The Brewers started May by completing a three-game sweep of the Cardinals and improved to an MLB-leading 18–9 record. The Brewers went on to win six of their next seven games; they won three of four against the Pirates and swept a three-game series with the Washington Nationals.

Early-season slump

The Brewers hit a slump when they went on an east coast trip to face the New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies, posting a 2-5 record. The Brewers returned home to face their interleague rivals, the Minnesota Twins. The Brewers won the last of a three-game series, a game which saw Geoff Jenkins hit his 200th home run.[10] The Brewers then traveled to California for a six-game road-trip. They lost two of three from the Dodgers and were swept by the San Diego Padres. On May 24 during the San Diego Padres series, the Brewers called up Ryan Braun from the minor league Nashville Sounds. Braun became the Brewers starting third-baseman was placed in the third batting spot, ahead of Prince Fielder.[11]

The Brewers returned home to start a ten-game home-stand, winning two of four games against the Atlanta Braves. At the end of May, first baseman Prince Fielder was voted the National League's Player of the Month. Fielder led the league in home runs with 19 and recorded a .755 on-base percentage and a .321 batting average.[12] The Brewers played the Florida Marlins to continue their home-stand. They won two of three games to give the Brewers their first series victory since May 9. The win gave the Brewers a 6½ lead in the NL Central.[13] The Brewers finished their home-stand losing two of three games to the Chicago Cubs.

The Brewers started a nine-game interleague road trip with a series against the Texas Rangers. The Brewers lost the first two games against the struggling Rangers. In the second game of the series, former Ranger Francisco Cordero recorded his first blown save of the year. Before the game, Cordero held a 0.36 earned run average and an MLB-leading 22 saves.[14] The following day, Cordero gave up his second blown save after the Rangers tied the game in the ninth inning. The Brewers would eventually win the game, snapping their seven-game losing streak after a Geoff Jenkins home run in the twelfth inning.[15] On June 12, Justin Verlander of the Detroit Tigers pitched a no-hitter against the Brewers. The no-hitter was the first for the Tigers since 1984.[16] The loss was the Brewers 20th in their past 30 games.[17]

June turn-around

Following the no-hitter, the Brewers recorded eleven hits and defeated the Tigers in a comeback win. The following day, the Brewers defeated the Tigers to win the series. The Brewers traveled to Minnesota to face the rival Twins. In the first game, the Brewers recorded fifteen hits with an 11–3 win.[18] In the three games following the no hitter, the Brewers recorded 39 hits and 20 runs.[17] The Brewers were victorious in two of three games against the Twins.

After their road-stint, the Brewers came home for their next nine games. After starting-pitcher Chris Capuano was placed on the disabled-list, the Brewers called up Yovani Gallardo from the minor leagues. Gallardo pitched 6⅓ innings, allowing three runs, and hit an RBI double in front of a sell-out crowd to give the Brewers their fifth win in six games against the San Francisco Giants.[19] The following day the Brewers clinched their third straight series victory, with Ben Sheets pitching his second complete game of the year.[20] The Brewers would go on to sweep the Giants and win two of three games from the Kansas City Royals. The Brewers would follow with another series sweep against the Houston Astros, winning the third game of the series in part because of an 11th-inning walk-off home run by back-up catcher Damian Miller. The Brewers were 8–1 on the home-stand.

Pre-break road trip

After their successful home stand, the Brewers went on the road for three series before the All-Star break. The Brewers defeated the second place Cubs in one of three games. During the series it was announced that Prince Fielder, Ben Sheets, J. J. Hardy and Francisco Cordero would be attending the 2007 Major League Baseball All-Star Game. This would be the first time four Brewer representatives have attended since 1983, when the Brewers were in the American League and the all-star team was managed by Milwaukee skipper Harvey Kuenn.[21]

At the end of June Ben Sheets was named pitcher of the month and Ryan Braun the rookie of the month. Sheets was 5–0 with a 2.16 ERA in six starts, and Braun recorded a .382 average with six home runs, 21 RBI, a .716 slugging percentage.[22]

Following their series in Chicago, the Brewers traveled to Pittsburgh to face the fourth-place Pirates. The Brewers won the first game of a four-game series. In the game Damian Miller hit a franchise tying seven RBIs and a grand slam in his first start after his walk-off home run at Miller Park.[23] The Brewers then won one of three games against the Nationals and ended up 3–7 on the road trip.

Dog days of summer

The Brewers went into the All-Star break 10 games above .500, and a 4½ game lead on the Cubs. The Brewers then had 18 games scheduled in a 17-day period. The Brewers started the stretch with a 6–4 homestand, but then went on to lose 6 of 8 on the road. With their first off day in 2½ weeks, the Brewers record stood at 57-48, but the Cubs had moved to within a game and a half of the division lead. Then, on the final day of July, the Brewers were able to defeat the Mets in a 13 inning game, due to a Geoff Jenkins walk-off home run. After the game, Rickie Weeks was sent down to AAA Nashville. For the first time in over a hundred days, the division lead did not belong to the Brewers.

The Brewers frustrations continued in August, resulting in a dugout altercation during a loss to the Mets between Johnny Estrada and manager Ned Yost on August 2, 2007. Later, on August 8, infielder Tony Graffanino tore his ACL in a 19–4 loss to the Colorado Rockies, resulting in his loss for the season. The Brewers then called up Weeks to take his place on the roster.

In August Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder was suspended 3 games for arguing with the home plate umpire Wally Bell.

On August 29, the Brewers slipped into 3rd place, behind the Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals and were one game below .500 for the first time since April 6.

The race to October

Despite tumbling in August the Brewers started September on a high note to be tied with the Chicago Cubs for first place in the division. For the first time in over 15 years in Brewers history a coin toss was held to decide homefield advantage should the Cardinals, Cubs and Brewers tie for the division. One coin toss decided that the Brewers would host St. Louis, while the other decided that the Brewers would travel to Chicago for any one game playoff that may be needed.

On September 9, the Brewers became the first road team in history to open a game by hitting three consecutive home runs. The win, solidified by a Cubs loss gives the Brewers a one-game lead in the division. However, the Brewers failed to either win the division or make the playoffs.
