Can Brewers Win Final Cardinals Series of Season for 4th Straight Year?

Series between the Brewers and Cardinals have been relatively even in recent years. But in late September, the advantage has gone to the Crew. At 27-28, the Brewers still control their playoff destiny with multiple different scenarios that involve them making the postseason. And just like recent years, their path includes a late-season matchup against […] Can Brewers Win Final Cardinals Series of Season for 4th Straight Year? - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Milwaukee Brewers award candidate: Devin Williams, NL Rookie of the Year

Michael McLoone-USA TODAY Sports The “airbender” makes Williams one of the most dominant pitchers in the game The discussion around who should be the National League Rookie of the Year is beginning to heat up in earnest. The Milwaukee Brewers have a player in Devin Williams who could be the front runner on the list. NL Rookie of the Year is fascinating: 2B Jake Cronenworth (143 OPS+), SP Dustin May (10 GS , 2 ER or < in all) and RP Devin Williams (19K/9, 0.36 ERA) are all worthy.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) September 24, 2020 Before we go into Devin Williams’ worthiness to be...

Series Preview: Milwaukee Brewers @ St. Louis Cardinals

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports And here we go. Milwaukee’s “control our own destiny” line took a hit this week when they dropped 2 of 3 to the Cincinnati Reds, but it’s still largely true. The Brewers head into St. Louis tonight just a game behind the Cardinals for the NL Central’s 2nd autobid into this year’s expanded postseason tournament, with the next 4 days either providing more clarity or providing more chaos, depending on who wins each game. We did our best to sort that mess out in this morning’s look at the NL Playoff race. The bottom line remains — just win as...

We’ve known for awhile that the season would ultimately comes down to how the 5-games-in-4-days stretch plays out, and Wednesday’s loss to the Reds doesn’t change a ton in the grand scheme of things, other than making it seemingly unlikely...

Brewers playoff hopes take a hit as they lose 6-1 to Reds

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports Reds lead from the first on and Brewers can’t recover. Box Score With a chance to move ahead in the standings, the Brewers faced the Reds for the final time this season tonight in Cincinnati. Unfortunately, they couldn’t take advantage. The Brewers fell behind early in the game. Avisail Garcia led off with a single, but then was caught stealing second base (originally called safe, but overturned on replay). Strikeouts by Christian Yelich and Jedd Gyorko ended the inning, and the Reds took their half of the first inning. Shogo Akiyama walked to start for...
