Safe to say that this series has already gone better than expected, with the DIamondbacks already guaranteed to take the series. Considering the Brewers hadn't lose consecutive games at home this year before we arrived, that's quite a feat, and once which has re-invigorated the Diamondbacks' playoff hopes: the Giants have dropped two at home to the Padres, so we are only one back going into this morning's contest. Today, it'll be a bit like other teams feel facing the Arizona offense, as much like our hitters, Collmenter has made outs the first time through the order - but the third, not so much...link to game page

It's odd that we have never swept a series against the Brewers, in the entire history of the Diamondbacks. That would make you tend to think they have dominated play against us, but that's not the case. We are 49-44 against them all-time, though of late, they had taken it to us - from 2007-10, we had only nine wins in 28 attempts versus Milwaukee. The last couple of days have definitely helped, but it would be great to end the job and put more pressure on the wobbling Giants.
