The Brewers Get Pounded in Game Two of the NLCS

The Brewers got pounded by the Cardinals 12-3 in Game 2 of the NLCS to even up the series to one game apiece. The best of 7 series will now shift now to St. Louis for the next three games as the Brewers take their game on the road. So what went wrong?  Suffice it to say that Shaun Marcum was a little off, and it begs the question as to why another pitcher wasn’t rotated in before the damage was done… The Brewers’ starters have a 7.61 ERA through 7 playoff starts and Marcum himself has gone 7 innings or better only once in his last 6 starts. He was miserable, and had absolutely NO command on […]

Brewers Advance to the National League Championship Series

It was a perfect recipe to end game five of the National League Playoff Series in the bottom of the tenth inning at Miller Park. With Carlos Gomez on second after a single and a stolen base.  Nyjer Morgan at bat. Ryan Braun on deck, followed by Prince Fielder.  And, of course,  44,028 towel-waving Brewers fans routing for the Brew Crew to finish them off! And so it happened, and so it is that the Brewers won their first postseason series in 29 years and will advance to the NL Championship Series.   What only makes it better is the fact that the Brewers also gained home field advantage in the Championship Series because the Cardinals beat the […]

Brewers Miss the Sweep, Losing to the Diamondbacks in Game Three

It was a cold night in Phoenix Tuesday night as Brewers fans watched their team take a beating from the Diamondbacks in game three of the five-game NL Division playoff series.  Heading in to game three, the Milwaukee Brewers lead the series with two wins at Miller Park, but the Diamondbacks came back strong to prevent the sweep. Just 1 for 11 with runners in scoring position while losing the first two games, it seems the Diamondbacks didn’t waste any time sending runners around once they got home to the desert.  Rookie Josh Collmenter dominated Milwaukee, helping the Diamondbacks beat the Brewers 8-1.  The hatchet-throwing right-hander had two impressive outings against Milwaukee during the regular season and kept […]

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 […]

Milwaukee Brewers’ Mascot Hawk?

It appears that the Milwaukee Brewers may have a mascot? In what can be best described as an eloquent warrior of nature, a young red tail hawk chaperoned the Milwaukee Brewers to their 4-1 victory over the Houston Astros today at Miller Park.   Proudly stationing itself in right field for what one fan estimated to be about 20 minutes, the hawk skillfully supervised the majority of the 3rd inning as the Brewers scored 3 runs against the Astros, not so much as twitching a feather.         “Even when the Brewers hit a home run, and 30,000 + fans were on their feet cheering as the fireworks were exploding, the hawk maintained its ground near […]
