The Milwaukee Brewers appear to be in trouble after suffering a blowout loss to the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 2 of the NLCS. The 12-3 beatdown occurred in the Crew's normally safe haven of Miller Park, and now the series heads to hostile Busch Stadium for Game 3.
Can the Brewers rebound and win a game or two on the road to bring the series back to Miller Park with a chance for their first World Series berth as a National League franchise?
To do so will require beating a talented and confident team, the same club that knocked off the Brewers in the 1982 Fall Classic, back when Harvey's Wallbangers were still part of the Junior Circuit.
The Cardinals exposed several serious Brewers flaws in the first two NLCS contests. For this squad of Brewers to recover and best St. Louis in the second Suds Series, these five things will need to happen.
