On September 5 the Brewers’ playoff prospects looked fairly grim. On that day they lost to the Chicago Cubs by a score of 10 to 5 at Miller Park, their record was a mere 3 games over .500, and they had several teams in front of them for the second wild card playoff spot.
Many Brewers fans were resigned to missing the playoffs this season after almost making it to the World Series last year. Very disappointing!
The next 17 games were a complete surprise.
Even after losing their star player to a misplaced foul ball, the Brewers won 15 of their next 17 games as other team members stepped forward to carry the team.
Not coincidentally, there were also many more team members that could contribute.
On September 1 Major League Baseball teams are permitted to increase their active roster from 25 players to 40 players, and the Brewers added several pitchers and position players from the injured list and minor leagues to their active roster.
Manager Craig Counsell has been strategically using these additional players’ skills to increase scoring opportunities and decrease opponents’ batting averages.
