The Milwaukee Brewers have a 77 and 53 record and are at the tops of the NL Central. They have the largest lead of any division in the Majors with 9 games over the St. Louis Cardinals. The Brewers have had an amazing August, at 17 and 4 just in this month alone. They have a chance to wrap up the month with a 24 and 4 record, which would put them high in the ranks for the MLB record for best record during the month of August. If they were to finish 24 and 4, it would put them tied for third for best record in August behind the 1903 Cubs (26-3 and .897) and the 1936 New York Giants (24-3 and .889).
The Brewers have had a near record month of August and have proven themselves tops in the NL. They haven’t beat many teams that are considered the threats in the NL (Cardinals, Astros, Dodgers, Pirates, and Mets), but the streak they’re on is a huge confidence boost and will keep them moving along through September and into October.
The Brewers have came out this month and showed everyone that they are legitimate contenders by pulling away from the rest of the division including the Cardinals. They are no doubt the hottest team right now in baseball, and are easily the best team in the National League right now, yes over the Phillies. I hope that the Brewers can carry this streak through September and hopefully can take this into the playoffs. If they’re able to take this into the playoffs, I don’t see any team beating them. They’re my pick to represent the NL in the World Series.
