will play in the postseason for the first time since 2007.

Up next for Brewers: vs. Pittsburgh Pirates, 9/28

• Zack Greinke (15-6, 3.86 ERA) vs. Jeff Locke (0-2, 4.97 ERA)

Current Playoff Standings:






Under this scenario the playoff matchups would be Phillies
vs. D-backs and Brewers vs. Braves.
