LOS ANGELES — The Milwaukee Brewers 2020 season is over, after they were swept in the wild card round by the top seed in MLB’s playoffs.
For the third time in six seasons, Milwaukee made a postseason appearance, however this year they were fortunate to make it in with the implemented expanded playoffs finishing with a sub .500 record (29-31).
In game two of the wild card round, Dodger starter Clayton Kershaw had it going early and often. The future Hall of Famer had one of his best postseason outings of his career, putting up 13 strikeouts and only allowing three hits.
Brandon Woodruff matched Kershaw through four innings, but then gave up three runs to in the fifth. Woodruff officially finished 2020 with 100 strikeouts, including nine in the game two loss.
The Dodgers will face the winner of the Cardinals and Padres, while the Brewers will regroup and get ready for spring training 2021.
