MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Brewers clinched the NL Central title for the third time in just six seasons Tuesday night in front of a home crowd at American Family Field.
The Crew took the crown despite a 4-1 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. It was the Chicago Cubs losing to the Atlantic Braves that sealed Milwaukee's fate. Even in a loss, fans were smiling ear to ear as they picked up their NL Central Champs gear.
"It feels great. Feels great. I wish we could have seen them take the last bow but a lot more baseball to be played," one fan said.
And the only thing better than a Brewers win, is a Cubs loss. But a loss that helps the Brewers win the division is that much sweeter.
"It feels amazing but it feels so much better to see the Cubs lose," one fan said. "It's just the best of both worlds right now."
"I can't believe we made it. We made it, yes. People in Chicago, sorry!" another fan said.
The merchandise was quickly rolling off the shelves as Brewers fans celebrated another division title.
