On July 26, 1987 — After hitting a single off Oakland’s Dennis Lamp in the first inning of the Brewers’ 7-4 victory at County Stadium, leadoff batter Paul Molitor steals second and third base, and then swipes home plate to complete a rare stolen base cycle. The Milwaukee DH becomes the first American Leaguer to steal his way around the bases since Dave Nelson accomplished the feat with the Rangers in 1974.
