Milwaukee Brewers current hot streak summed up in four tweets

He did. On to Denver, one victory from the Brewers' first NLCS appearance in seven years, five victories from their first World Series appearance since the first Reagan administration. Milwaukee will host games 1 and 2 and if needed games 6 and 7 of the series. With two on, Hader got Ian Desmond to fly out to end the ninth and start an on-field celebration. Acquired from the New York Yankees in May for a player to be named, Kratz is making quite a name for himself in the playoffs.

"We have a lot of confidence moving forward, especially at home where we're all very comfortable hitting and pitching", second baseman DJ LeMahieu said. "When you understand that you appreciate these times more than anything else".

In 28 innings played against the Milwaukee Brewers, the Colorado Rockies only scored two runs, hit zero homers, and only slashed.154/.211/.185. Jesus Aguilar had a solo shot in the fourth off German Marquez that Counsell sort of predicted.

Colorado won nine of its last 10 regular season games to force a one-game playoff with the Dodgers.

Granted, it wasn't with men on base. But it was still big and gave the Brewers a 2-0 lead.

That was more than enough against a Colorado offense that was shut out twice in the series and hit.146 against Milwaukee's stingy pitching.

"Everywhere we've played, it's been super loud, and everybody hates us", Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon said. "It's been a hell of a ride, and hopefully we've got more to go".

Left-hander Wade Miley went 5-2 with a 2.57 earned run average for the Brewers after being acquired midseason. He bottled up the Rockies with a cutter, curve and an effective change. Colorado has managed just ten hits and two runs so far in this NLDS against the Brewers. After an eight-game home losing streak ended June 19, team went 36-14 at Coors Field. "We just couldn't get anything going".

"That's a combination, I think, of aggressiveness and anxiousness", Black said.

Arenado wore a ski mask late in the game due to the cool conditions. Trevor Story followed Gonzalez to bat, struck out amid a backdrop of fans waving gold towels from every direction, then flung his bat nearly all the way back to the dugout. The Rockies have lost 11 of their last 13 postseason games. The Rockies finished with 11 hits, but went 1 for 10 with runners in scoring position and left 11 runners on base. "We were anxious. But at the same time, they have a great staff there".
