The Brewers are one win away from advancing to their first championship series since 1982. Can the Diamondbacks stay alive?
The Milwaukee Brewers showed their full arsenal to the Arizona Diamondbacks in Games 1 and 2, as they beat them behind a terrific pitching performance from Yovani Gallardo on Saturday, then went into full "beast mode" on Sunday, taking 9-4 win.
The Brewers are now one win away from advancing to their first championship series since 1982, when they beat the Angels in the ALCS before falling to St. Louis in the World Series.
Milwaukee will send Shaun Marcum to the hill for the series-clincher. Marcum was one of the league's top pitchers on the road at 8-3 with a 2.21 ERA in his 16 starts away from Miller Park.
Meanwhile the D'backs will counter with Josh Collmenter, who was 10-10 with a 3.38 ERA and 100 strikeouts in 24 starts this year as they try to stay alive.
