Uecker also partied with the Brewers after they won the NL Central division at the end of September and certainly let loose.

The Brewers took advantage of some Colorado mistakes in the sixth inning to bust open Game Three - and then added back-to-back homers in the ninth for good measure.

As for folk hero Erik Kratz, he's just happy to be here. They've rattled off 11 straight victories dating back to the regular season and have now advanced to the National League Championship Series. They will play the victor of the Dodgers-Braves series, starting Friday at Miller Park - by the time that game starts, it will have been almost three weeks since Milwaukee lost. "We've got a uniform on, so we know we've got a chance". "That's what we've been saying, one at a time", NL MVP candidate Christian Yelich said.

Fourth-year manager Craig Counsell should be named Manager of the Year for the way he's deftly managed a diverse lineup of power hitters and masterfully used only bullpen pitchers for entire games, including Game 1 of the NLDS. Five Milwaukee relievers combined to give up just one hit in 4? innings to close out the game. Davis got lifted after walking the next two batters. He threw 1 2/3 scoreless innings against the Chicago Cubs in the NL Wild Card Game on October 2.

Kratz, a catcher who was acquired from the New York Yankees in May in a trade, is making the most of this latest opportunity.

Orlando Arcia and Keon Broxton (home run) all chipped in run-producing hits in the win.

The Brewers manager said Saturday, "Aggie is going to hit a home run in the playoffs, a big homer with men on base, I promise".

Not only that, but they shut them out in Coors Field as well. The Rockies got out of the inning after giving up 2 runs without a Brewers player recording an RBI in the inning. Aguilar, hitless through the first two games, turned on a 82 miles per hour curveball from starting pitcher Germán Márquez that landed 418 feet away from home plate in the bleachers out in left field, doubling the Brewers lead.
