It’s here, we’ve reached the All-Star break! The Brewers have a sort of commanding 5.5 game lead on the rest of the division. It’s quite surprising and they just keep getting better. Here is a look at the Central from the last week.
- The Brewers posted a 6-2 mark this week and sit at 50-41 through the first half of the season.
- The big story of the Brewers’ season so far, Eric Thames, has proven he belongs. His first half slash line reads .248/.374/.562 (.936 OPS). Thames leads the Brewers with 23 dingers.
- Travis Shaw has been a find and a half. With 70 games to play, Shaw has already set a career high in home runs and is on pace to put up the best offensive season of his career, by a long shot.
- Corey Knebel’s strikeout streak is still intact. It has reached 43 games to start the season. This dude is just insane, and he’s only 25 years old.
