I meant to run this post on Saturday, but better late than never.
A 3-2 week might have been seen as mildly disappointing in the regular season, but in the playoffs it was enough to secure the Brewers' first playoff series victory in 29 years. Here are your Brewer of the Week nominees:
Ryan Braun reached base safely in every NLDS game and had multiple hits in three of them. Five of his nine hits went for extra bases, leading to a .500/.571/.889 batting line and +.526 WPA.
Prince Fielder also reached base in every game in the series. He only had five hits, but three of them went for extra bases for a .278/.381/.556 line and +.080 WPA.
Yovani Gallardo was the starting pitcher in two of the Brewers' three victories and allowed two runs on ten hits over 14 innings, walking three and striking out 14. He posted a 1.29 ERA this week and was worth +.639 WPA.
Jerry Hairston Jr had two multi-hit games in the NLDS, hitting .375/.400/.500 and providing +.134 WPA.
Takashi Saito pitched three scoreless innings in relief in the series, allowing two hits and walking none while striking out two. He was worth +.168 WPA this week.
