A hysteria-inducing 3-2 win over the D-backs in Game 5 clinched the NL Division Series, a win-or-go-home game decided in the bottom of the 10 inning on Nyjer Morgan’s single after John Axford’s first blown save since mid-April.
Carlos Gomez, at second after a single and a stolen base, raced home on Morgan’s hit to give Milwaukee’s its first postseason series win in 29 years.
The NL Championship Series opponent still awaited as the Brewers celebrated with 44,028 deliriously towel-waving fans, but this much was clear: Milwaukee is four NLCS wins away from the World Series.
