The week in review: It was a tale of two home series this past week for the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Pittsburgh Pirates came to town over the weekend and swept the Crew in a four game series. Going into Monday’s action the Brewers are 56-74, a half-game ahead of Cincinnati in the battle for fourth or last place in the NL Central.

It was a great night for baseball as the weather was great, the two teams were full of young talented professionals and there was even special guest Don Larsen (threw the only perfect game in World Series history) at the game.
