Brewers use “Beast Mode” to gain 2-0 NLDS edge

Ryan Braun's .750 batting average has sparked Milwaukee's 2-0 series lead.

The Milwaukee Brewers, fresh off a game 1 victory at Miller Park behind their ace Yovani Gallardo, gave the ball to Zack Greinke on short rest and inched a bit closer to their title dream.  The Brewers won 9-4 thanks mostly to a five-run sixth inning sparked by Jonathan Lucroy’s go-ahead safety squeeze.  Greinke went five innings in his postseason debut, allowing four runs on eight hits (three home runs), no walks and seven strikeouts.  Ryan Braun had three hits for the second straight game and launched his first postseason dinger.  With Fielder flexing his muscles (he hit a bomb in game 1), Braun hitting .750, and the bullpen pitching lights out, it looks like the next game at Miller Park will be in the National League Championship Series.  But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves.  Milwaukee’s next game is in Arizona, where they’ll send Shaun Marcum to face Josh Collmenter.  As always, Go Brewers! 9 wins away from a World Series title…
