After 172 games, it all comes down to one for the Milwaukee Brewers. Game 7 of the National League Championship Series. The game is at 7:09 (Central Time) tonight. You’re not going to want to miss what is sure to be an instant classic.
The Brewers offense exploded last night in game 6 and won, 7-2. The series is tied 3-3. Big market versus small market. This win forced a game 7, a game in which the Brewer players and fans can’t wait for.
Tonight’s starters are Jhoulys Chacin for the Brew Crew and Walker Buehler for the Dodgers. In 2 postseason starts for Chacin, he has pitched 10.1 innings, given up 0 runs, and struck out 9. Buehler has also pitched in 2 postseason games. He has pitched 12 innings, given up 9 runs, and struck out 15.
Tonight’s game will be Milwaukee’s first game 7 since 1958 when they were the Milwaukee Braves and they played at County Stadium. The 1958 team included all-time greats like Warren Spahn, Eddie Matthews, and Hank Aaron. They lost this game 7 to the Whitey Ford, Yogi Berra, and Mickey Mantle lead Yankees.
I have been waiting my whole life for a Brewers World Series, my parents have been waiting since 1982. The day where the World Series is just one win away, seemed out of reach. However, it is here.
