The Milwaukee Brewers and Cincinnati Reds played a three game series before the All-Star break in which Milwaukee took two out of three games. Following the All-Star break they met up again for a second consecutive series against one another. During Friday night’s game on July 14, 2023 Brewers history was made.
On Sunday, July 9 the Brewers took the series finale by a score of 1-0. Five days later, but the next game on the calendar, Milwaukee won again 1-0. This is the first time in franchise history that the Brew Crew have won consecutive games by a score of 1-0. With the way the schedule played out it also just so happened to be against the same opponent.
Milwaukee Brewers back-to-back 1-0 victories over the Cincinnati Reds is the first time that has happened in franchise history.
This historic news was announced on the Bally Sports broadcast, but several baseball enthusiasts pointed this out on social media as well.

First time in franchise history winning back-to-back 1-0 games, much less against the same team, 5 days apart.

Another impressive fact throughout these past two games is that the Brewers have only used five total pitchers. Both starting pitchers went six innings (Wade Miley and Corbin Burnes) and then Elvis Peguero, Joel Payamps, and Devin Williams all pitched an inning a piece in each game.
Game two between the Brewers and Reds will be on Saturday, July 15 with the first pitch scheduled for 6:10 PM CT. Cincinnati will be looking to snap an 18 inning scoreless streak while the Brewers will look to keep this dominant stretch of pitching going.
