It was a little over a month ago the Brewers were in a deep slump losing 9 straight. Brewers manger Ken Macha knew something had to be done, before it was to late to catchup in the National League Central Division.

Ken Macha reached down deep and for no reason switched to his two most powerful hitters in the lineup, in Fielder and Braun.This meant that Fielder would be hitting at number 3 and Braun at number 4. There was not statical reason behind the move, but nonetheless it has been working out.

The move has not much affect on Braun he has been hitting steadily all season long. For Fielder he has more homeruns in the past 30 days than in the last 2 months combined.

Looking back before the move the Brewer played 40 games and the were on the winner side 15 times. The Crew was within 4 runs in those losses 14 times.

Since the move, in 34 games the Crew has won 18 of those and that is just over the .500 mark and currently sitting 3 in the NL Central with a 33-41 record.

Will this switch to lineup carry the Crew to the postseason?
