Craig Counsell and the Milwaukee Brewers are returning to the MLB Playoffs for the first time since 2021, when they lost to the Atlanta Braves in the NLDS.
The last time the Brewers won in the playoffs was in 2018 in the NLDS against the Colorado Rockies. They ended their playoff run that season after dropping a decisive Game 7 in the NLCS to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
This Brewers squad has been at the top of the NL Central for most of the season, ending with a 92-70. This team is believed to be built for an extended playoff run. Counsell said of his Brewers, "We have the chance to do something special. Make great memories and change some lives."

The Brewers will take on the Arizona Diamondbacks at American Family Field in Milwaukee. The series begins Tuesday at 6:08 p.m. CT on ESPN2. The two will play again Wednesday at 6:08 p.m. CT on ESPN2. If necessary, the two will play again Thursday at 6:08 p.m. CT on ESPN2.

Theh winner of this series will go on to take on the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLDS.
