Saturday June 2nd, 2012

By hitting a one-out solo home run in the bottom of the first inning, Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Nyjer Morgan drove in his first run in 138 plate appearances, to end his MLB-record drought. Morgan had not driven in a run since Game 5 of the NLDS last October.

After falling behind 0-2 to Pittsburgh Pirates righthander Kevin Correia, Morgan drove a 2-2 slider to right field to break the ice in both the HR and RBI categories this season.

Morgan also set another dubious record during his skid.
