Brewers clinch National League Central division title
MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WSAW) - The Brewers clinched the National League Central division title with an 8-4 win over the Mets on Sunday.
The division title is the third in Brewers’ franchise history since joining the NL Central in 1994. The Brewers had already clinched a playoff spot last week.
The Brewers jumped out to a 5-1 lead in the second inning on a home run from Willy Adames and a two-RBI single from Eduardo Escobar. After the Mets cut the deficit to 5-4, the Brewers scored three runs in the sixth inning to claim the victory.
The Brewers entered the day needing either a win over the Mets or a St. Louis Cardinals loss against the Chicago Cubs. The Cardinals won 4-2.
The Brewers are also almost locked into a two-seed in the playoffs and will play either the Philadelphia Phillies or the Atlanta Braves in the first round of the playoffs. They are guaranteed to have home-field advantage in the first round.
