Brewers Clinch Playoff Berth, Eliminate Cubs, Mets 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Sep 26, 2019 11:28 am

The Milwaukee Brewers clinched a postseason berth on Wednesday, eliminating both the Chicago Cubs and New York Mets in the process.

The Brewers have been red-hot in September, winning 19 games. They stand at 88-70 after being just three games over .500 on Sept. 5.

\"What we just accomplished is really against all odds,\" Ryan Braun said. \"Incredibly difficult to do what we just did. I think we\'re 17-2 in our last 19 games. We\'ve had so many guys contribute, so many special moments. We obviously enjoyed playing this month.\"

Milwaukee lost National League MVP candidate Christian Yelich to a fractured kneecap Sept. 10.

The Brewers have now made the postseason four times in the past 12 seasons.
