For the Brewers, AL stands for "All Losses"

The Brewers wrapped up interleague play on Sunday, and they certainly won't miss it.

When the struggling Angels completed a three-game sweep of the Brewers at Miller Park on Sunday, it gave us all a welcome opportunity to close the book on interleague play for 2013. The Brewers won just six of their 20 games against AL opponents this season. Here's a quick recap, if you need the reminder:

May: 1-1 against the Rangers, 0-4 against the Twins.
June: 1-2 against Oakland, 1-2 against the Astros.
August: 2-1 against the Mariners, 1-1 against the Rangers again, 0-2 against the Angels
September: 0-1 against the Angels

The Twins, Astros, Mariners and Angels entered play Sunday a combined 86 games under .500, so going 3-10 against the four of them this season stings a bit.

Despite that relatively weak collection of opponents, the Brewers have a chance to finish as the NL's worst interleague team. Here are the standings, heading into Monday:

Team W L Pct
Cubs 13 7 .650
Pirates 12 8 .600
Dodgers 12 8 .600
Mets* 10 7 .588
Diamondbacks* 10 7 .588
Braves 11 9 .550
Nationals 11 9 .550
Cardinals* 8 9 .471
Reds* 8 9 .471
Padres 8 12 .400
Marlins* 6 11 .353
Phillies 7 13 .350
Brewers 6 14 .300
Giants* 5 12 .294
Rockies* 4 14 .222

* - The Mets, Diamondbacks, Cardinals, Reds, Marlins and Giants all have three interleague games remaining. The Rockies have two.

All told, the Brewers are 39-56 in interleague play since the start of the 2008 season. They've posted a winning interleague record in just one of the last six seasons, going 9-6 in 2010.
