Milwaukee Brewers Sweep Rockies to Advance to NLCS

Brewers Sweep Rockies

The Milwaukee Brewers have won 11 baseball games in a row. 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.

HOUSTON (AP) - Marwin Gonzalez hit a go-ahead, two-run double, Alex Bregman homered for the second straight day and the Houston Astros beat the Cleveland Indians 3-1 Saturday to take a 2-0 AL Division Series lead. 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. "Because you never know if you're going to get another one", Kratz said. But more than that, it'll be their first appearance in one since 2011. He started the NL Wild Card Game against the Cubs on Tuesday, so he was unavailable in NLDS Games 1 and 2, but he could've started Game 3 on normal rest.

Fourth-year manager Craig Counsell should be named Manager of the Year for the way he's deftly managed a diverse lineup of power hitters and masterfully used only bullpen pitchers for entire games, including Game 1 of the NLDS. Davis got lifted after walking the next two batters.

"I really feel like I've played my last game for the last 12 years because the game doesn't owe anybody anything", Kratz said.

Bodies Of 11 Infants Found In Ceiling Of Closed Funeral Home
WDIV said that Detroit police have ordered an entire building search to ensure there are no additional bodies inside. Michigan State Police and the Wayne County Medical examiners responded to the former funeral home Friday.

Orlando Arcia and Keon Broxton (home run) all chipped in run-producing hits in the win. Yelich went on to bat.326 during the regular season, scored 118 runs, drove in 110 more, smashed 36 homers and always seems to come through in the clutch - even in the postseason.

Not only that, but they shut them out in Coors Field as well. The Brewers proved ready, as they handled the Cubs and sent their rival to the one-game Wild Card against the Rockies.

The 20-year-old Acuna became the youngest Major League player to hit a playoff grand slam, surpassing Mickey Mantle, who was 21 when he did it for the New York Yankees in the 1953 World Series.
