Brewers Face the Diamondbacks at Miller Park for Game One of the National League Division Series

The National League Central Division champion Milwaukee Brewers opens their best-of-five National League Division Series against the Arizona Diamondbacks today at 1:07 p.m. (CST). The Brewers (96-66) capped their turnaround year with their first-ever NL Central title. The Brewers, led by sluggers Prince Fielder (38 homers, 120 RBI) and Ryan Braun (.332, 33 homers, 111 RBI), return to the postseason for the first time since 2008, when they were the wild card. The Brewers didn’t clinch the NL’s No. 2 seed and the chance to open at home until the final game of the season September 28th. The Diamondbacks wrote their own improbable playoff story, going from worst to first in the NL West. Arizona went 65-97 last […]

Brewers Win Division Title

Braun’s tiebreaking three-run homer sends the Brewers to their first division win since 1982. With chants of “MVP” from the 44,584 fans (the 33rd sellout of the season at Miller Park) resounding throughout Miller Park, Ryan Braun worked the count to 3-1 before Hensley made the fatal mistake of leaving an 81-mph slider in the strike zone. Braun gracefully swung and crushed the ball, sending it 450 feet out to left-center, where it bounced off the bottom of the scoreboard. Braun knew it was out of the park as soon as he hit it.  He lifted his bat in the air and screamed toward the Brewers’ dugout and the crowd before beginning his 32nd trip around the bases […]

Milwaukee Brewers Still Have To Face Some Big Contenders

Nearing their conclusion of June with 13 wins out of the 23 games played this month, the Milwaukee Brewers still face the New York Yankees for a three game series that begins this Tuesday.   Sitting at a very comfortable nine games over the .500 mark— not to mention a 73 percent “home game” winning percentage, (which is currently the major league’s best) the Brewers have managed to increase their lead in the NL Central standings by three games.  Granted, the Brewers are 15-24 on the road so far this season, but lets not forget what happened just a few short years ago. In the 2008 MLB season the Milwaukee Brewers had a huge lead at the All Star […]

Brewers Take First in the NL Central

In a four-run sixth inning that was highlighted by a home run to right field by Prince Fielder, the Milwaukee Brewers bumped the St. Louis Cardinals out of the National League Central roost with a 4-3 victory in front of a sellout crowd of 42,692 fans.  Although the win moved the Brewers one-half game ahead of St. Louis in the NL Central standings, at only 66 games into the 2011 MLB season its safe to say that there’s a long way to go. Prince Fielder’s two-run homer capped a four-run sixth inning, earning the Brewers their victory and putting Milwaukee atop the National League Central. With a single already in his pocket, Fielder wasted little time making the […]

Ryan Braun Staying with the Brewers through 2020

Back in the day there was  a time when superstars played their entire careers with one baseball team, good or bad.  However, today most small market ball clubs will often lose their superstars because they cannot afford to risk their entire salary on one player.  Unlike the days when Robin Yount was the Milwaukee Brewers MVP and career team player, salaries and money have everything to do with a teams players, and teams will trade away their star for draft picks rather than lose them for nothing in the off-season. Nevertheless, it appears as though the Milwauke Brewers have embarked on some old, but not too often treaded ground when it comes to team members.  Last week Major […]
