April 8 - At County Stadium, the Brewers open against the Yankees with Hank Aaron driving in three runs to back Jim Slaton's 4-hit 5-0 win. Five days later, Slaton will shut out the Tigers. Catfish Hunter is the loser, allowing five runs in seven innings. Later, both he and reliever Sparky Lyle, complain about the flatness of the mound April 10 - The Brewers trail 9-6 with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 9th inning at a full County Stadium. Because of crowd noise, Yankee relief P Dave Pagan does not hear the time-out called by 1B Chris Chambliss. Pagan pitches to Don Money, who hits a grand slam. Because of the time-out the home run is nullified. Money bats again, and hits a sacrifice fly. The final score is 9-7 and the Brewers protest the game April 13 - Milwaukee's Jim Slaton throws his 2nd straight complete game shut out, beating Detroit 1-0. The Brewers' only run was an unearned score in the top of the 9th June 1 - Detroit reliever John Hiller wins both games 8-7, 7-5 against the Brewers, who blow 6-0 and 2-0 leads. Milwaukee reliever Eddie Rodriguez takes both losses June 18 - Henry Aaron hits his 750th career home run in the top of the 9th to give the Brewers a 3-2 win over Oakland. It is Aaron's 3rd home run in three games July 11 - Hank Aaron's 10th-inning homer, his 9th, in game two gives the Brewers a doubleheader sweep over the Texas Rangers and a sweep of the 4-game series. Milwaukee wins 6-3 and 5-4 with the W's going to Jim Slaton and Bill Castro July 20 - Hank Aaron hits the 755th, and last, home run of his career, connecting off Dick Drago of the California Angels. Jerry Augustine wins for the Brewers, 6-2 August 9 - In the Hall of Fame game following the inductions of Robin Roberts, Bob Lemon and others, the Brewers beat the Mets, 9-3 August 16 - With the help of three picked-off Oakland runners at 1B, the first such occurrence in the American League since 1910, the Brewers beat Oakland 4-3. Another oddity happens when Oakland's Billy Williams is called out on strikes after refusing to enter the batter's box. He is then thrown out of the game September 3 - The Brewers crush the Tigers and Mark Fidrych, 11-2, as Mike Hegan hits for the cycle and drives in six runs September 17 - At Milwaukee's County Stadium, 40,383 fans are on hand to celebrate "Hank Aaron Day." Among those gathered are commissioner Bowie Kuhn and Jack Ford, representing his father Gerald. Hank goes hitless in five at-bats, and the first-place Yankees spoil the night by winning, 5-3, in 11 innings. Graig Nettles hits a solo homer in the 11th for the game winner, and an insurance run scores on a suicide bunt. Ed Figueroa tallies his 19th win, and the Yanks pad their lead to 11 games October 3 - Hank Aaron singles in his last ML at bat and drives in his 2,297th run as the 6th-place Brewers lose to the Tigers 5-2 October 11 - In the last of the 8th, leading the Hanshin Tigers 4-1 with 2 out and a full count, Sadaharu Oh socks his 715th HR to pass Babe Ruth's mark. He finishes the season with 716 HRs and takes aim at Aaron.
