The Milwaukee Brewers took a 2-0 series lead into Arizona and are now heading back to Milwaukee in a must-win scenario. Just about nothing went right in the desert, as the Brew Crew got knocked around by the Diamondbacks, losing the two games by a combined score of 18-7.
Thankfully, the club is headed back to Milwaukee for the finale of the best-of-five series. The Brewers own the best home record in the majors, going 57-24 at Miller Park during the regular season and beating the Diamondbacks twice at home to open the NLDS.
Right fielder Corey Hart acknowledged the role of home field advantage in this series: "These guys are like us, really good at home. Now we're home with our guy on the mound. We like our chances."
But no matter where the games are played, all that ultimately matters is how the players on the field perform. For the Brewers to win Game 5 and advance to their first NLCS ever, these five key players need to get the job done on the mound, in the field and at the plate.
