Brewers' win in extras took shape in key 8th

There's no sport that's more stat-driven than baseball and that can lead to all kinds of number craziness. The Brewers' 3-2 win in 13 innings over the Braves on Wednesday night at Turner Field certainly fit the crazy quotient. The eighth inning alone will suffice to explain.

The Milwaukee Brewers could play “spoiler” in 2016

It can be hard to look at the positives of an organization like the Milwaukee Brewers who are in a full rebuild.

Game 45 Recap: Brewers 2 Braves 1

Tl;dr: Jimmy Nelson and Julio Teheran engaged in a pitcher’s duel, with the Brewers prevailing 2-1 as Scooter Gennett delivered the go ahead hit. Top Play (WPA): When you win 2-1 and the winning run scores in the 8th inning, you don’t need an advanced stat to prove that was the top play of the game.

Milwaukee Brewers: Hey, it hasn’t been so bad thus far

For Milwaukee Brewers fans, the narrative for the 2016 season was already spelled out for them: it was not going to be a fun season, and a winning record would be a complete fantasy.

I knew going...

Pitching Staff and the Rebuild

It’s no secret that the Brewers’ pitching staff has struggled tremendously this year: they rank last in baseball in DRA, are the only group to have posted negative WARP, and are leading only Cincinnati in FIP.

Game 44 Recap: Mets 3 Brewers 1

Best & Worst Play: It turns out that Noah Syndergaard fella can pitch pretty well. Across seven innings, he allowed a lone run on six hits and no walks, while piling up 11 strikeouts. Once the Mets took the lead with a two-run fourth inning, the Brewers’ win expectancy never rose above 40 percent. The closest the Brewers came to a comeback was in the seventh inning, Syndergaard’s...
