The Milwaukee Brewers' 2010 season was the 41st season for the franchise in Milwaukee, the 13th in the National League, and 42nd overall.

Regular season[edit]

April[edit]

The Brewers began the 2010 season with a loss at Miller Park to the Colorado Rockies in Yovani Gallardo's first career Opening Day start. The Brewers recovered to win the series, however, on the strength of two saves by Trevor Hoffman and a solid start from newcomer Randy Wolf. In the following series against the St. Louis Cardinals, Hoffman squandered two ninth-inning leads though he was bailed out the second time by third baseman Casey McGehee's walk-off home run to avoid being swept. The game was also noteworthy, because the Brewers overcame a home run by Albert Pujols. Although Pujols would hit 8 home runs against the Brewers in 2010, the Brewers would win 6 of those 7 contests.[1] Milwaukee then lost series to the Chicago Cubs and the Washington Nationals. In the lone win of the Nationals series, the Brewers scored ten runs in the first inning, the franchise's first ten-run inning in nearly nine years.[2]

The Brewers took that offensive firepower to Pittsburgh, where, in a three-game sweep, they outscored the Pirates 36–1, including a historic 20–0 drubbing in the finale. The 20-run margin tied a club record for margin of victory and was the most one-sided shutout win in Brewers history. The series run differential tied for the third largest all-time.[3] The team could not keep up the record pace, though, and returned to Milwaukee to get swept by the Cubs, then to lose two of three against the Pirates, to whom the Brewers had not lost at Miller Park in the previous 22 Milwaukee meetings.[4] Hoffman continued to struggle, blowing consecutive save opportunities in a 17-hour span as the Brewers hitters sputtered to end the month as well. The Brewers lost seven of their last eight games in April to finish the month with a 9–14 record.

Left fielder Ryan Braun recorded a .355 batting average with five home runs and 20 RBIs and Casey McGehee hit .305 with five homers and 19 RBIs to lead the way for the Brewers' offense, while mighty first baseman Prince Fielder could only muster a .244 average and did not hit a home run until his 54th at bat, a career-long season-opening drought.[5][6][7] Gallardo and Wolf each notched two wins in the season's opening month to set the pace for Milwaukee pitchers. Veteran Jeff Suppan, the Brewers' Opening Day starter in 2009, was removed from the rotation after two disappointing starts in favor of Chris Narveson.[8]

May[edit]

The month of May was rocky for the Brewers when they rode a 9-game losing streak, the longest since 2006 when they lost 10 in a row.
