Brewers advance, Braves force Game 4 — MLB Postseason Roundup

Brewers advance, Braves force Game 4 — MLB Postseason Roundup

Erik Kratz maintained his hot bat and the vaunted bullpen pitched masterfully as the Milwaukee Brewers swept their National League Division Series by clobbering the Colorado Rockies 6-0 on Sunday. It was surprising to see the Rockies explosive offense held to just a.146/.210/.188 slash line by the Brewers, but we just witnessed that in a swift three-game sweep. "We've got a uniform on, so we know we've got a chance". They've rattled off 11 straight victories dating back to the regular season and have now advanced to the National League Championship Series. To the bottom of the ninth, down 6-0, the Rockies were once again able to hit Brewers closer Jeremy Jeffress like they did in Game 1 of the series. But more than that, it'll be their first appearance in one since 2011.

"We just like the matchup", Brewers manager Craig Counsell said of Gonzalez.

A procession of five Brewers relievers allowed one hit the rest of the way.

Kratz, a catcher who was acquired from the New York Yankees in May in a trade, is making the most of this latest opportunity. Games 1 and 2 of the NLCS are October 12-13 at Miller Park. "When you understand that you appreciate these times more than anything else".

Lewis told Newsweek that he did not speak to the woman or file a police report after the incident. The officer briefly spoke with Lewis and asked to speak with the children as well.

The woes of the Rockies went from bad to worse in the ninth inning giving up back to back solo homers to the worst two hitters on the Milwaukee Brewers roster: Orlando Arcia and Keon Broxton.

They then blew that big lead, but first baseman Freddie Freeman hit a tie-breaking home run in the sixth and Atlanta never looked back. He got the start over Denver native Kyle Freeland, whose 2.40 at Coors Field this season was the lowest mark for a starter in franchise history.

"Our pitching staff doesn't get enough credit", said Kratz, who was doused over and over with sparkling wine in the Brewers clubhouse. The Brewers proved ready, as they handled the Cubs and sent their rival to the one-game Wild Card against the Rockies.
