Series Preview: Brewers @ Cubs

Entering Wrigley Field, the Brewers may have just completed one of their most important stretches of play for the season. At the 40 game mark, the Brewers boasted a 25-15 overall record, but they more recently stumbled through a rough stretch of injuries and scattered… [More]

Series Preview: Pirates @ Brewers

Following the brawl at PNC Park, the Pirates bottomed-out, losing eight of 10 contests when the dust settled (including the remainder / outcome of the brawl game). After bottoming out in rain-soaked Baltimore, the Pirates regrouped to win three consecutive series by reclaiming some of… [More]

Series Preview: Yankees @ Brewers

I was in college during the Yankees-Brewers series in June 2005, and I will never forget the intensity of that series. Despite the fact that the Brewers were in the middle of a rebuilding stretch, there was some sense that the series against the Yankees… [More]

First Must-Win Series? Diamondbacks @ Brewers

Series Preview: San Diego Padres @ Milwaukee Brewers

After a 3-6 start, the Padres put together a 6-4 homestand, including series victories against Detroit and San Francisco (and a split against Colorado). Their ten game stretch at PetCo Park featured extremely low-scoring ballgames, as the Padres won the homestand by a 33 runs… [More]

Series Preview: Brewers @ Pirates

If the Brewers and Pirates last faced one another in a battle of NL Central clubs seeking dominance, their next match-up finds both teams searching for the winning path once more. After the Brewers swept the Pirates at Miller Park, Pittsburgh lost on the road… [More]
