The Brewers have chosen Wade Miley to start in Game 2 on Saturday, meaning that Milwaukee will open up the NLCS with two straight lefties. On Sunday, the Brewers got that win.
Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Jeremy Jeffress is doused by teammates as they celebrate in the clubhouse after Game 3 of the National League Division Series against the Colorado Rockies on Sunday, Oct. 7, 2018, in Denver. Milwaukee got on the board early by plating one in the top of the first. Travis Shaw then grounded into a fielder's choice at second to score Yelich.
That victory gave the Brewers the best record in the National League (96-67) and secured home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
At 20, Acuna became the youngest player to hit a postseason grand slam - Mickey Mantle was 21 when he did it for the New York Yankees in the 1953 World Series. With one out in the sixth, Mike Moustakas singled in front of Matt Holliday and Erik Kratz doubled him to third.
The Rockies offense fell apart in the series, producing just two runs and 14 hits overall. Oberg was standing on the rubber throwing the ball in the air and catching it, except Oberg failed at the catching part.
The Brew Crew now rides an 11-game winning streak into the National League Championship Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers (92-71), with the victor of the best-of-seven series advancing to the World Series to face either the Houston Astros or the Boston Red Sox.
Brewers: Await the victor of the Braves-Dodgers series in the NLCS. Miley pitched 4 2/3 innings, giving up 0 runs on just 3 hits. 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. Five Milwaukee relievers combined to give up just one hit in 4? innings to close out the game.
Plenty of credit goes to the Brewers pitching staff, especially the insane talent they brought out of the bullpen. In 41 postseason innings, they only scored in three of them (one run in an inning twice, two runs in an inning once, 38 scoreless innings). Both games will be played in Milwaukee.
