The weekend that the Brewers had may be the definition of dominance in baseball. The offense was on fire, putting up a combined twenty-five runs on forty hits. They hit six home runs over the weekend series and put up a batting line of .364/.462/.564 in those three games. They actually had more walks than strikeouts (15 strikeouts to 17 walks). The offense could not have played much better. Meanwhile, the pitching backed up. They allowed a total of five runs and twenty-one hits, putting up a 1.67 ERA. It was a dominating weekend by the whole team, something we haven't seen from them in a while.
