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 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 […]
