MLB.com: Sixth sense: Crew takes 2-0 lead with big frame

Greinke served up three home runs, but the Brewers stayed perfect in his home starts, taking command of the National League Division Series with a flurry of sixth-inning small ball that included catcher Jonathan Lucroy’s go-ahead squeeze bunt. It led to a 9-4 win over the D-backs in Game 2 and a commanding 2-0 lead in the best-of-five series.
...
On Sunday, Ryan Braun had three more hits, including his first career postseason home run, a first-inning shot that accounted for two of his three RBIs, and led a group of five at the top of the Brewers’ lineup that accounted for eight RBIs.

It seemed like the Diamondbacks had base runners in every inning, but just couldn't do anything with them. Series over.

Tuesday's game in AZ isn't even a sellout yet. Yikes.

He really shouldn't have read that old "OFFICIAL OAKLAND A'S MANUAL ON HOW TO PERFORM IN THE PLAYOFFS" !

Kevin Towers' #### doesn't work in the playoffs. And Gibson is lucky all the Manager of the Year votes are in, because every single journalist who voted for him is surely wanting to recast that vote. The Dbacks are choking terribly, and the manager and coaches aren't helping by making one mind-blowing mistake after another. The Dbacks are playing some horrible baseball, no two ways about it. The guys who ranked the Dbacks dead last among the playoff teams got that one right; the DBacks plain stink.

How could he not, he got a hardcover of the book autographed by Eric #### Byrnes himself.

So I guess that brunette who sits behind home plate is semi-internet famous. Deadspin has a couple of recent posts about her. She's got a Facebook fan page and everything. After examining it, my next thought was, "I wonder how many Brewers have banged her?"
