Here we are at the end of August and the Brewers are just 2.5 games out of first place. Not bad, considering the fact that the team is in just the second full year of a rebuild.
Success Out West
The Brewers are coming off a 5-4 west coast trip that included series wins over the red hot Dodgers.
The Brewers have been hitting for power and stealing bases. They are second in the NL in home runs and lead the league in stolen bases. Travis Shaw and Eric Thames lead the team with 27 home runs apiece. Keon Broxton is just 1 stolen base from 20/20.
The Brewer pitching staff is getting the job done in August. Zach Davies, Jimmy Nelson, and Chase Anderson are looking sharp and will be a solid core for the rotation in 2018. Corey Knebel has been solid in high leverage situations.
