Craig Counsell has returned to Chase Field dozens of times since celebrating the D-backs' World Series championship 10 years ago, but his first postseason visit since then is conjuring a particularly vivid set of memories.

(Source) A 97-year-old man who wanted to watch a Milwaukee Brewers game called 911 to report someone had stolen his remote control.
According to the Greenfield police report:
The man called 911 to report someone had stolen his remote control from his residence in the 9300 block of West Howard Avenue prior to 8 p.m. Sept. 26.
The remote control was found after police responded...
Saturday and Sunday saw the Milwaukee Brewers looking like World Series contenders. Ryan Braun was 6-for-8 in two games, while Prince Fielder was 3-for-8. Yovani Gallardo pitched a gem on Saturday, and a strong offense bailed out a pedestrian outing from co-ace Zack Greinke on Sunday. With that kind of talent playing at that high a level, Milwaukee's visit to Phoenix and Chase...
Prince Fielder said on the eve of the Milwaukee Brewers' National League Division Series opener with the Arizona Diamondbacks at Miller Park that perhaps the biggest mistake he made going into his first postseason appearance in 2008 was being too amped up.
His goal heading into Saturday? "Try to be real cool," he said Friday. "As cool as possible." Fielder...
Phoenix - The Milwaukee Brewers haven't taken anything for granted this season, and they're not about to start now.
Up, 2-0, in their best-of-five National League Divisional Series with the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Brewers come into Tuesday night's Game 3 at Chase Field with both the momentum and history on their side.
Since Major League Baseball went to the current...
With the D-backs having turned the NLDS around with a pair of wins over the Brewers in Phoenix, Ian Kennedy and Yovani Gallardo will hook up again in Milwaukee to decide which team advances.
Randy Wolf was doing all he could to find a rhythm and Brewers manager Ron Roenicke remained patient, giving the lefty time to regain his footing against an aggressive D-backs offense. Unfortunately, Wolf was unable to recover from a first-inning onslaught.
Get it? Snake Bite brew?
NLDS Game 4: MIL Randy Wolf (13-10, 3.69) @ ARI Joe Saunders (12-13, 3.69).
The Diamondbacks showed there's still life in them, winning 8-1 to force Game 4. It's still going to be an uphill climb however, so winning what could be the Snakes' last home game this season is critical. And who would have thought we'd see two starters with equal...
A pair of rookies made sure the Milwaukee Brewers never stood much of a chance.
Staring pitcher Shaun Marcum struggled as Milwaukee missed out on a chance to sweep Arizona.
PHOENIX -- In Games 1 and 2 of the NL Division Series between the Milwaukee Brewers and Arizona Diamondbacks, intentional walks -- whether real or proposed -- factored prominently into both Milwaukee wins.
The trend continued as the series shifted to Arizona for Game 3 Tuesday, but roles were reversed as an intentional pass swung things in the Diamondbacks' favor and they avoided...
This "Beast Mode" thing is almost getting out of control.
It started with Hall of Famer Robin Yount raising his arms in beastly celebration after throwing the ceremonial first pitch Sunday. And by the end of the day there were beasts breaking out all over Miller Park.
Just about everybody on the Milwaukee Brewers had cause to go into Beast Mode as the Brewers took a commanding...
Suddenly, the Milwaukee Brewers are America's Team. Or at least America's Goofball Team.
With their raucous, frat house team spirit, their growing collection of identifiable personalities and their small-market franchise roots, the Brewers have emerged as the anti-Yankees and anti-Phillies of this baseball postseason.
Among the latest to jump aboard the beer wagon is ESPN...
