After getting shut out over the first two months of the season, Brewers’ outfielder Nyjer Morgan is finally on the board.

Morgan clubbed a solo homer off Pirates’ right-hander Kevin Correia in the bottom of the first inning tonight, giving him his first RBI of the season.

It took Morgan an astounding 138 plate appearances to collect his first RBI, which is a new MLB record. The previous record-holder was former White Sox outfielder Herb Adams, who needed 131 appearances to get his first RBI back in 1950.

Morgan entered play tonight hitting just .226/.289/.234 through 45 games, with 27 of his 28 hits falling for singles.

    Then he misplays a fly ball to cost the Crew 3 runs. Enough with the platoon Roenicke, Gomez should be starting everyday in center. His last start 4 hits, last night a pinch hit hr. His reward is riding the pine. Bullshit

    Does that put him on pace for 3 RBIs for the year?

    When hitters start out hot, you always see how they are on pace for 80 HRs or some such nonsense. His pace is much slower.

    He looked like an all-star center fielder on tabatas double that he totally mis played. Tony gumbo is having a great year!

    Good. Now that he sucks, maybe he’ll just shut up and play baseball. Tony Jabroni.
