Brewers sweep Rockies, advance to 1st NL Championship Series since 2011

Milwaukee Brewers Celebrate

Arenado, eligible for free agency after the 2019 season, issued a challenge to teammates and the organization in July, suggesting he wanted to play in meaningful autumn games.

After losing the NL West tiebreaker 5-2 in Los Angeles to the Dodgers and flying to Chicago for the win over the Cubs, the Rockies seemed flat as they lost 3-2 in 10 innings at Miller Park and then 4-0. The bad news is the Brewers used six of their 11 relievers which means they need at least five or six innings out of their next couple of starters. Milwaukee (96-67) is making first playoff appearance since 2011, last time team won division.

"I really don't think anything we did was that unorthodox", Brewers manager Craig Counsell said.

"We're probably putting a little pressure on ourselves, but I know we're excited to get home and play Sunday", LeMahieu said.

Trevor Story had two hits for the Rockies, who batted just.146 in the series.

Counting the NL West tiebreaker game against the Dodgers on October 1, the Rockies mustered six runs total in their last five games, four of them defeats.

Closer Jeremy Jeffress was the only Milwaukee Brewers pitcher to give a run, earned or otherwise, to the Colorado Rockies offense.

And when they got back to Coors, they were still impatient at the plate, expanding their strike zones.

New York Giants plan to trade or cut Ereck Flowers
In his place, the Giants brought in Nate Solder , who was signed to a four-year, $62 million deal in March . But the results weren't any better, as Flowers was benched in favor of Chad Wheeler after two games.

"That's a combination, I think, of aggressiveness and anxiousness", Black said. Jeffress recovered in time to keep the game tied, but it was a high-leverage blemish on an otherwise pristine pitching day for Milwaukee's staff. Game lasted almost 5 hours and was longest win-or-go-home postseason game in major league history. At first blush, it's surprising since the Rockies had the second-best offense in terms of runs scored per game - their 4.79 rate was second-best in the NL, trailing only the Dodgers at 4.93.

For the first time in his career, Arenado is playing in a postseason series.

Colorado had one chance early but couldn't capitalize.

"I don't know what it is", third baseman Nolan Arenado said.

Brewers: CF Lorenzo Cain (.308, 10s, 38, 30/37 steals, .395 OBP), RF Christian Yelich (NL-best.326, 36, 110, 22/26 steals, 1.000 OPS), 1B Jesus Aguilar (.274, 35, 108, .890 OPS), 2B Travis Shaw (.241, 32, 86) or Jonathan Schoop (.233, 21, 61 with Orioles and Brewers;.202, 4, 21 in 46 games with Brewers), LF Ryan Braun (.254, 20, 64), 3B Mike Moustakas (.251, 28, 95 with Royals and Brewers), C Erik Kratz (.236, 6, 23 in 67 games) or Manny Pina (.252, 9, 28 in 98 games), SS Orlando Arcia (.236, 3, 30 in 348 ABs) or Hernan Perez (.253, 9, 29, 11/14 steals in 316 ABs). Colorado has managed just ten hits and two runs so far in this NLDS against the Brewers. He struck out five and walked one. He left with a runner at second and two outs, and Corey Knebel entered to strike out Charlie Blackmon and end the inning.

"The big performance today for me was from Corbin Burnes", Counsell said. Scoring first will be a big key for the Rockies in this game, and they should get the job done.

"It makes you appreciate it", he said.

"We were trying to get things going".
