The Milwaukee Brewers are seriously on track to compete in the major leagues, which now hold the four-season mark making it to the playoffs in a row.
His path has been mainly guided by very good pitching and excellent defense, although his offense can be said to have looked way below for the Beer Town team.
In 2021 in MLB, the Milwaukee Brewers pitcher was at the top of the league, having maintained a 3.50 ERA, which was the third best score for a team in all the major leagues, which produced an independent ERA at 3.72 in defense, third best in the league.
The rivals were only able to reach the Brewers’ pitch for an average of 0.215, the second lowest score in the MLB, while a strikeout differential per base on balls of 18.0%, the third highest rating in the league.
Clear signs of the great dominance over their pitching opponents, that looking a little deeper one could attribute the credit primarily to the great performance of the team’s starting pitcher, as relief is a factor for the called Brewers. to improve.
The Brewers’ starting corps had the second best ERA (3.13), the best Independent ERA in defense (3.29), as well as the second lowest rotation with the lowest batting average with just one. 210.
Faced with such performances, one can see how the relief was quite unfavorable. That, while the terrain was good, it was far from sensational that the starting pitcher was. The Brewers’ relief combined for a 4.02 ERA, fourteenth minus in MLB.
On the other hand, they presented an Independent Defense ERA of 4.34, ranking 18th among all the teams that make up the MLB.
In addition to their starting pitcher, the team’s defense was another fixture for the Brewers in 2021, who racked up 61 save points, being the sixth-best score for organizations in Major League Baseball.
Along with his relief, another section that disappointed the Brewers’ year in 2021 was an inconsistent offense. That he clearly struggled to hit and hit the bases.
The team had an offensive line of .233 / .317 / .396, ranking no. 27 batting average, 14 percentage basing and 23 slugging average.
Something positive for the Brewers’ stick was their production to run the pads, who recorded a base run (BsR) of 8.5 as a representation of all of their actions in the base run, being the seventh best score in the MLB in 2021.
If anything is called for in baseball, it is obviously at bat. Today’s offensive production is set to be the main improving factor for the Milwaukee Brewers’ aspirations.
A palpable example of the Ninth Brewery club’s needs was its participation in the National League championship series, where in four games the team were able to score just six points, a series in which they were shut out in two games, falling 3-1 to the Atlanta Braves and ending his season.
