Jean, Jean, the Hitting Machine

Jean Segura, the Brewers, hopefully soon to be “All-Star” shortstop accomplished something Tuesday night (5-28-13) that only 2 other Brewers have in the 44 year history of the franchise…6 hits in a game!

Segura joined Johnny Briggs, and Kevin Reimer as the only other two Brewers to accomplish the feat in a Milwaukee uniform.

 First, it was Briggs who got 6 hits in Cleveland on August 6th,1973…then 20 years later, Reimer did it in a 13 inning game at County Stadium against Oakland on August 24th, 1993.

Segura went 6 for 7  which included 2 runs, and a RBI in the Brewers 14 inning loss to the Twins (6-5). All 6 hits were singles, and raised Segura’s average to a league leading .365. He also leads the N.L. in hits (72), multi-hit games (23), tied for the lead in triples (5), while in the top 5 in stolen bases (tied for 2nd with 14), 2nd in total bases (112), and 4th in on-base percentage (.400).

Those numbers regardless of market size are All-Star worthy, and if Jean can keep it up, he should be the starting shortstop on July 18th when the Senior Circuit takes the field for the Mid-Summer Classic.
