The Milwaukee Brewers successfully defended the Belt through two series after stealing it from the Red Sox. They brought it to Philadelphia, swept the Phillies, brought it home to Miller Park, and defended it against a Pirate invasion. They now hope to keep it out of the hands of the hated Red Birds, who will need to take two of three from the Brew Crew to steal it away. Pirates fans hungry for the title will be hoping the Brewers can beat back the Cardinal challenge, the Crew will head to Pittsburgh this weekend. If the Cardinals take it, they'll begin their defense in the nation's Capital against Bryce Harper and the Nats. As if Harper needed any more motivation to hustle.
- Milwaukee Brewers: 3 Series
