Milwaukee Brewers Take 2-0 Series Lead Against Arizona
The Brewers are wasting no time in the 2011 postseason. They got off to a quick start in game 2 and kept up the momentum with a 5 run 6th inning which put the game out of reach for the Arizona Diamondbacks.
For the first time in franchise history the Milwaukee Brewers has a 2-0 series lead in the post season. Milwaukee has an opportunity to sweep the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night in Game 3 in Arizona. That would be the furthest the Brewers have gotten in the post season since their 1982 season.
Both teams were tied at 4-4 going into the 6th inning when Jonathan Lucroy bunted the go ahead run to put the Brewers ahead for good and give them the eventual win. Brewers starter Zack Greinke had a disappointing start giving up 3 home runs. He was 11-0 at Miller Park in the regular season, but leaves that game with the no decision.
The Milwaukee bullpen was clutch again. They only allowed 2 hits after the 8 allowed by Greinke in the first 5 innings. In September the Brewers bullpen had a combined ERA of 1.14 over 71 innings pitched. It looks like they are carrying that over the postseason.
