Brewers Get 55th Home Win Of Season

by

MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers set a team-record yesterday with their 55th home victory, in a 9-to-5 win over the Florida Marlins. The National League Central champion-Brewers are still battling for home-field advantage in the first-round of the playoffs. The magic number for that is three, with three games left. In other words, if the Brewers sweep their final regular season series with Pittsburgh, they won’t have to worry about starting the post-season at Philadelphia – the team that beat the Crew in four games in the first round in 2008. Instead, the Brewers would host either Arizona or Atlanta in the first round, depending on whether the Braves or Saint Louis is the National League Wild Card. The Cardinals are only a game behind Atlanta for the Wild Card, after the Cards topped the Chicago 3-to-2 yesterday while Atlanta fell at Washington 3-nothing.

The Brewers completed a 7-and-0 season sweep of Florida – their first sweep over the Marlins since 1998. Chris Narveson got the win, giving up four runs in six-and-a-third innings. And Narveson drove in the run that put Milwaukee in front for good in the second inning, on a hit that struck the third base bag and bounced in the air. Ryan Braun homered and singled for the Brewers. He’s now hitting .333, leading the National League batting race over Jose Reyes of the Mets who’s at .331. Emilio Bonifacio and Donnie Murphy homered for Florida, which finished its road schedule at 41-and-43. Ricky Nolasco took the loss, giving up seven runs in two-plus innings. He’s now 10-and-12. The Brewers’ three-game series with Pittsburgh opens tonight at Miller Park. Right-hander Shaun Marcum will face Pirates’ right-hander Charlie Morton.  Coverage on WHBL gets underway at 6:35.
