Futility Streak

The Brewers have scored fewer than 5 runs in 9 consecutive games. This is their longest such streak since 2004. If they fail to score 5 runs tonight and run the streak to 10, it will be the longest since 1972.

Here is the list of the longest <5 run streaks in the team's history:

Year Games
1971 25
1972 17
1972 15
1972 12
1970 11
1971 10
2008 9
2004 9
2004 9
2000 9
1991 9
1983 9
1975 9
1972 9
1971 9
1970 9

You could say that the Brewers offense sputtered a bit in 1972. They scored 493 runs all season. To put that in perspective, they have scored almost 200 more than that so far this year. Almost. They're at 687. They should hit 693 tonight. Right? I hope.
