The Milwaukee Brewers are riding high right now as they take a 5.5-game division lead into the second-half of the season.

The Brewers' all-star closer Corey Knebel took that literally on Friday. Knebel hitched a ride with the legendary Blue Angels air squad, who are in town this weekend for the Milwaukee Air & Water Show.

After the ride, Knebel reported on Twitter to TODAY'S TMJ4's Vince Vitrano that he did not vomit and was able to stay conscious throughout the entire ride.

Knebel has 14 saves and a 1.70 ERA in 42.1 innings pitched so far this season. He owns a 15.94 strikeout rate, the best such number in baseball.

The Brewers are back in action this weekend at home against the Philadelphia Phillies.
