Well rested and ready to power through the final stretch, the Milwaukee Brewers are looking to bounce back in their first series after the All-Star Break. Prior to the hiatus, things went from bad to worse for the NL Central leader. They’re still 16/1 to win the World Series
, but can Ryan Braun and company fortify their division lead before it’s too late?
The Brewers emerged as unlikely contenders in the beginning of the 2014 campaign. As months passed, they refused to let up. The team has high expectations to live up to after their temporary foray as this season’s best team.
It’s quite possible that Milwaukee is a legitimate contender but is simply experiencing a dry spell. It’s also possible that their initial success was a flash of luck. Either way, their MLB odds are bound to shift depending on their weekend series against the NL East leading Washington Nationals.
Pull up a seat as the rag tag group of Jonathan Lucroy, Scooter Gennett and Carlos Gomez push the limits of this franchise’s capabilities.
