Milwaukee Brewers Sweep Astros, Look to Continue Success Against D-Backs

Alec DoppCorrespondent IAugust 9, 2010

In the midst of a season that has turned out to be nothing short of a disappointment, the Milwaukee Brewers have begun to turn things around as of late.

Although finding themselves currently 11 games behind front-running Cincinnati isn't what was envisioned, the Milwaukee Brewers have really turned around their fortunes recently.

With an impressive weekend sweep of the Houston Astros looming in our minds, we have to expect the success to keep up, no matter how hard that may seem.

The sweep of Houston included a little bit of everything, including an impressive outing from all starting pitching.

Arizona's goal: Slow down Rickie Weeks.

Weeks made Brewers history yesterday, becoming the first Brewer leadoff hitter to hit an inside-the-park HR since Mike Felder (Sept. 26, 1989).

Should Weeks continue his impressive pace, he would become just the second leadoff hitter in Major League history to 100 RBI in a season.

"Obviously, that's a great feeling," Weeks said Saturday.  "You don't have to hit the ball out of the park to get a home run. That was a big boost to the ball club early on."

Game 1: 7:10pm, Kennedy (6-9) v Narveson (9-7)
