Brewers seek to make history with 3rd straight playoff berth

MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Brewers want to celebrate their golden anniversary by accomplishing something they’ve never done before.

The Brewers are seeking an unprecedented third straight playoff berth during this unusual 60-game season after reaching the National League championship series in 2018 and losing in the wild-card game last year. The Brewers franchise dates back to 1970.

The team’s only previous back-to-back playoff appearances before the last two years came in 1981-82. Milwaukee will try to get back to the postseason following an offseason overhaul that included the losses of catcher Yasmani Grandal and third baseman Mike Moustakas in free agency.
