While the Brewers and Diamondbacks prepare for their final series of 2012, it's time to take a look back at the best Brewer moments against the Snakes in 2011. The Brewers went 3-4 against the Diamondbacks during the regular season and 3-2 in the playoffs.

1) Nyjer Morgan's walkoff single sends the Brewers to the NLCS

What else could it possibly be? The Brewers' single greatest highlight of 2011 and perhaps their greatest moment in generations came on this play, as the Brewers overcame a John Axford blown save and Carlos Gomez scored to give the Crew their first playoff series win in nearly 30 years.

2) Yovani Gallardo's gem gives Brewers NLDS Game 1

Pitching was the story of the Brewers' 2011 postseason, but typically not for positive reasons. The Brewers started off the playoffs with a masterful performance from Yovani Gallardo, however, allowing a run on four hits and striking out nine over eight innings.

3) Seven straight Brewers reach base to blow open NLDS Game 2

The Brewers took an early lead in their second home playoff game but couldn't hold it and went to the bottom of the sixth tied at 4. Jerry Hairston doubled with one out, though, and each of the six men to follow him to the plate also reached safely as the Brewers took a 9-4 lead.

4) Brewers score three in the tenth to win on July 20

Regular season games between these two teams had some dramatic moments too. The Brewers blew a late lead in this game to head to extras tied at 2, but the offense came to life in the tenth inning. Nyjer Morgan had the first of three RBI hits in the inning as the Brewers took a 5-2 lead.

5) Casey McGehee provides the offense in a 3-1 win on July 6

The Brewers only scored runs on one play in this game but it was enough as Casey McGehee's pinch hit, three-run homer gave them the lead in the seventh inning.
