For other teams called Milwaukee Brewers, see Milwaukee Brewers (disambiguation).

The Milwaukee Brewers served as a replacement team late in the 1884 Union Association season. Called the Cream Citys by both local papers, they had a record of 8-4.[1] The team came to the UA from the Northwestern League, as did the St. Paul Saints, and were managed by Tom Loftus. They played their home games at the Wright Street Grounds.

Although their season was brief, it was highlighted by a 5-0 no-hitter tossed by Ed Cushman on September 28[2] and an 18-strikeout game by Henry Porter on Oct. 3.

1884 season[edit]

The 1884 Milwaukee Brewers were a replacement team in the Union Association, joining the league from the Northwestern League along with the St. Paul Saints. They played their first game on September 27, going 8–4 to finish the season with the second-best winning percentage in the league, behind only the league champion St. Louis Maroons. This was the only season this version of the team existed, and indeed the only season the Union Association existed.
