Milwaukee Brewers: Top 10 Moments of the Regular Season
By Matt Yeazel
The Milwaukee Brewers had an improbable, and incredible 2018 regular season which resulted in them winning a tiebreaker game in Wrigley field to win the division. Over the course of the last six months, there were some unforgettable moments with this Brewers team.
It’s not easy to narrow down only 10 moments from such a great season such as this one, but this is my attempt to do so. Here are my top 10 moments of the Milwaukee Brewers’ 2018 Regular Season.
10. Jesus Aguilar’s 13 pitch Walk-off Home Run
In a game against the Marlins on April 21st that was tied 5-5 going into the ninth inning, first baseman Jesus Aguilar lead off the ninth with one of the more impressive at bats you’ll ever see. A whole 13 pitch sequence from Junichi Tazawa, and Aguilar finally got the one he wanted and smashed it into right-center field.
The big thing everyone talks about with Aguilar is his two-strike approach. He was in a two strike count for most of that battle and kept on fouling off pitches to stay alive.
This moment is also very significant because it is the start of when Aguilar got to have regular playing time at first base. Considering the Brewers were thinking about cutting Aguilar in spring training, and how his season turned out, this moment was huge for the team. Aguilar’s All Star numbers were vital to this team’s success, and especially in the first half, Aguilar carried this team at times.
