The series got underway in Miller Park featuring a pitching match-up not exactly consisting of household names--Brandon Woodruff for the Brewers, rookie Antonio Senzatela for the Rockies.

The Brewers won Game 1, 3-2, in ten innings, as the Socal connection--Mike Moustakas singling in Christian Yelich--that ended the contest on a thrilling note. Colorado reliever Adam Ottavino took the loss, while Joakim Soria got the win for Milwaukee.

At one time I was watching the end of this game, at the same time as the first couple of innings of the Dodgers vs. Braves. Brewers had quite a finish and I was happy to see Moose being mobbed.

They are playing Game 2 now and it is looking like another pitchers' duel, with Brewers up 1-0 in the 7th.

And it's Moooooooose...again! Mike Moustakas contributed two more big hits, and Milwaukee has gone up two games to one, with a 4-0 win at Miller Park today. Rockies starting pitcher Tyler Anderson lost to a former Rockie (current Brewer), Jhoulys Chacin.

The series now shifts to Coors Field in Denver for Game 3.

And that was quick...the Brewers swept the Rockies, winning Game 3, while accomplishing something practically unheard of--shutting out Colorado at home in Coors Field, 6-0, on four hits. Wade Miley started for Milwaukee, but didn't finish the fifth inning; German Marquez took the loss for the Rockies, and Bakersfield native Corbin Burnes was credited with the victory.

It was the failure of key offensive cogs for the Rox--Nolan, Charlie Blackmon, and Trevor Story--to produce in the NLDS that was the biggest factor in the series loss. And in some ways, it must have seemed surreal for first-year Rockies manager Bud Black.

Milwaukee is the first team to clinch a division series, and awaits the victor of the Dodgers-Braves series, now.

Congratulations!

I expected the Rockies to play better once the series got to Coors Field. The Brewers are just really hot now.
