After jumping out to an impressive 2-0 NLDS lead over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday night, the Milwaukee Brewers took to Chase Field in Phoenix with high hopes of sweeping Kirk Gibson and company and moving on to the NLCS, where they would face either the Philadelphia Phillies or St. Louis Cardinals.

Here are five things that must happen for the Brewers to take the series' final matchup.
