It feels like longer, but on this day two years ago the Brewers celebrated one of their greatest moments. Nyjer Morgan's single in the tenth inning brought home Carlos Gomez and the Brewers walked off with a 3-2 victory over the Diamondbacks at Miller Park and a 3-2 win in the NLDS.
Earlier this year (following the Axford trade) I mentioned that the 2011 playoff run feels like more than two years ago. Counting the NLCS, the Brewers are just 159-171 in the last two calendar years, and with the exception of a brief period last September they haven't really been all that close to contention. With that said, no matter what happens we'll always have the moments we shared two years ago today. Go back and check out the recap, if you'd like to live it again.
