MLB Playoffs 2011: Game 1 Win Proves Milwaukee Brewers Are Built for October

The Milwaukee Brewers completely dismantled the Arizona Diamondbacks during Game 1 of their 2011 NLDS opener. They won by a final score of 4-1, although the Diamondbacks never stood a chance after failing to capitalize in the first inning.

The Brewers tagged Diamondbacks pitcher and NL Cy Young candidate Ian Kennedy for eight hits and four runs in six and two-thirds innings, making him appear far less dominant than he did throughout the entire regular season.

It was a great all-around game for Milwaukee, as they compiled four extra-base hits while allowing a total of four hits against, and the team looked more than solid in the field.

If we learned anything from the Brewers' Game 1 performance, it's that they are built for October and more than ready to compete for the title.
