Uecker also partied with the Brewers after they won the NL Central division at the end of September and certainly let loose. It was surprising to see the Rockies explosive offense held to just a.146/.210/.188 slash line by the Brewers, but we just witnessed that in a swift three-game sweep.

Milwaukee starter Wade Miley pitched superbly into the fifth inning to help lead the Brewers to a 3-0 sweep of the Rockies - and their first NL Championship Series appearance in seven years.

This was Oh's first postseason in his third major league season. A 6-0 shutout in Denver has the Brewers set up for the NLCS likely Friday against the Dodgers or Braves. Games 1 and 2 of the NLCS are October 12-13 at Miller Park.

A procession of five Brewers relievers allowed one hit the rest of the way.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell announced his rotation on Thursday. With two on, Hader got Ian Desmond to fly out to end the ninth and start an on-field celebration. Acquired from the New York Yankees in May for a player to be named, Kratz is making quite a name for himself in the playoffs.

"I really feel like I've played my last game for the last 12 years because the game doesn't owe anybody anything", Kratz said.

Kratz went three-for-four at the plate and scored a run, while Keon Broxton and Orlando Arcia blasted consecutive homers late to put the game away. A team criticized by "experts and analysts" for their poor starting pitching rotation gave up 0 runs in 3 games to a Colorado team that scored the seventh most runs in baseball during the regular season.

Not only that, but they shut them out in Coors Field as well.

"Our pitching staff doesn't get enough credit", said Kratz, who was doused over and over with sparkling wine in the Brewers clubhouse. Aguilar, hitless through the first two games, turned on a 82 miles per hour curveball from starting pitcher Germán Márquez that landed 418 feet away from home plate in the bleachers out in left field, doubling the Brewers lead.
