The Milwaukee Brewers finished a three-game sweep of the Colorado Rockies on Sunday, earning just their second trip to the National League Championship Series since 1982.
"Two celebrations to go!" Ryan Braun yelled in the clubhouse. "We accomplished this by everybody playing to the best of their abilities. Everybody here is doing their job the best that they possibly can, and that's why we're winning baseball games. Nothing's going to change. The lights will get brighter. It's going to be more fun than we've had to this point. We're going to keep doing the same s---."
The Brewers were 2 1/2 games behind the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central on Sept. 22 with seven games to go. They proceeded to win out, forcing a tiebreaker with the Cubs, which they won. They've won 11 straight games.
"These are the moments you work for," David Stearns said. "These are the moments you're looking to get to have the organization get to a point like this, where you can enjoy a couple of these celebrations, it's special. This is the goal. When you pick up players like that, the goal is to win a World Series."
