The last time the Milwaukee Brewers reached the National League Championship Series was 1982. They sported the logo you see above. It was the glory days of Robin Yount, Paul Molitor, Jim Gantner, back when the Brew Crew was in the American League. Unfortunately, they lost to their current division rival, the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series, as Catcher Darrell Porter became a hated enemy of epic proportions for all baseball fans in beer town.

But tonight they outlasted Arizona, as Nyjer Morgan drove in Carlos Gomez with the game winning run in the bottom of the tenth.

In NLDS game 5, Brewers ace Yovani Gallardo, who owned game one with a masterful winning performance out-dueled his Arizona Diamondbacks counterpart Ian Kennedy in this one. Kennedy, who was a ridiculous 21-4, 2.88 ERA on the season, threw 6 innings and gave up 2 runs, they were earned, 5 K, 2BB.

Gallardo pitched eight innings and struck out nine while giving up only four hits and the one run. On the offensive side, it was Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder (who else would it be?) who combined for five of the Brewers’ eight hits on the day.

Milwaukee Brewers Finally Win With a Heavy Dose of Gallardo


All of the Milwaukee Brewers fans out there can now let out a sigh of relief as the team finally pulled out their first win of the season. After starting the season at 0-4, the Brewers blanked the Atlanta Braves 1-0 on Tuesday night.

While the bats were still not there, young hurler Yovani Gallardo pitched a masterpiece. His complete game shut-out/two-hitter may have been exactly what the Brewers needed.
