Milwaukee Brewers: 250 Words Or Less: 4/17/11
A thousand opportunities came and a thousand opportunities were squandered as the Brewers lost both games in a doubleheader against the Nationals. The Brewers leave Washington after a 3-game sweep, and would be happy if they never returned again.
For both games today, Milwaukee had plenty of offense but failed to execute on the scoreboard. The verdict: two more losses that should have been wins.
The way they played against Washington just won’t cut it in the next series vs. Philadelphia. The Phillies have reached the NL Championship Series the last three years and are expected to see similar success this year.
