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.

Win or lose tonight, there is no denying the Brewers had a remarkable season. They were incredibly fun to watch and gave us a year to remember. Thank you Brewers. Now, in the words of Christian Yelich, “LET’S GOOOOOOOOOO!” Today is the day to beat the Dodgers and earn a trip to the World Series!
