Brewers to face Rockies in National League Division Series

The Milwaukee Brewers now know their opponent in the National League Division Series.

They will face the Rockies in a best-of-five series starting Thursday at Miller Park.

Colorado beat the Chicago Cubs 2-1 in a 13 inning NL Wild Card Game, the longest winner-take-all postseason game in MLB history.

The Brewers won the season series over the Rockies 4-2. They  defeated Chicago 3-1 on Monday to clinch the NL Central Division in a "Game 163" division championship playoff.

That win not only afforded the Brewers the division title, but home field advantage in the National League playoffs.

Milwaukee enters the NLDS with a 20-7 record since September 1. The Rockies own a 20-10 mark, so this will be a battle between two of baseball's hottest teams.
