MILWAUKEE — For the first time since 2018, the Brewers are National League Central Champions.

The win is the team’s third Division Championship since 2011, and fifth in franchise history.

The Crew had a chance to clinch the title last week but were swept in four games by the red-hot St. Louis Cardinals.

The team was able to bounce back, however, winning three games in a row against the New York Mets to snap a five-game slump.

2021 saw the Brewers win 90+ games for the ninth time in franchise history.

Corbin Burnes and Josh Hader also combined for the second no-hitter in franchise history on September 11, the first combined no-hitter.

Burnes and Hader were both named to the NL All-Star team this season, as well as Freddy Peralta, Brandon Woodruff, and Omar Narvaez.

The Brewers now head to the postseason, in their quest to capture the first World Series in franchise history.

If the season ended Sunday, they would take on the Atlanta Braves in the NLDS.

The Tamba Bay Rays, Chicago White Sox, San Francisco Giants, and Los Angeles Dodgers have also clinched playoff berths.
