The Brewers are making the playoffs in back-to-back seasons for just the second time in franchise history.

Everyone, including broadcaster Bob Uecker, enjoyed themselves in the clubhouse.
It’s going to be a fun October! Milwaukee can still win the NL Central and avoid the Wild Card play-in game, so it'll be exciting to watch what happens down the stretch!
The Milwaukee Brewers have won 17 of 19 games to clinch a postseason berth -- most of it without Christian Yelich. Another incredible September run for the Brewers. The Cubs and Phillies are officially out and the five NL playoff teams are set: Dodgers, Braves, Cards, Nats, Crew.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) September 26, 2019
