My understanding is the Cardinals had never swept a four-game series against the Brewers. But after watching those four games, it’s hard to believe the Brewers have ever won against St. Louis. In three of the games, the Cardinals jumped out to big leads and never looked back.

It was just couple years ago that Nyjer Morgan was dancing around, yelling F-bombs into the live television camera, after the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Arizona Diamondbacks in a NLDS showdown.
