There were a lot of doubts at the beginning of the season as to if this Milwaukee Brewers team was really as good as we thought they would be, but now on June 12th I think it's at least safe to say that we have a real contender on our hands. The Milwaukee Brewers are in first place in the NL Central for the first time this season, and the way they got there couldn't have been sweeter. A series sweep in the familiar confines of Miller Park against the rival St. Louis Cardinals, the same team who Milwaukee has been chasing all season, was a beautiful way to end a terrific weekend for baseball fans in Wisconsin. We'll sum the weekend up haiku style.
Friday - Brewers 8, Cardinals 0
Narveson goes eight
Wastes LaRussa's milestone
Fine with me, Cards suck
POTG: Chris Narveson
Saturday - Brewers 5, Cardinals 3
Prince continues tear
Weeks joins the party, Hart too
So close to first place
POTG: Rickie Weeks
Sunday - Brewers 4, Cardinals 3
Staring down first place
Prince makes it happen, again
MVP? You bet.
POTG: Prince Fielder
In other news, I really think I'm coming around on those alternate "Cerveceros" jerseys, and here's some fun facts about what has happened in the nearly two years since the Brewers have been in first place courtesy of Bernie's Crew.
