The Brewers are still in first in what appears will be a three team race to the finish. Despite giving away a Dodger sweep the Brewers still took consecutive series from successful ball clubs; the types of series that need to be won if this team is going to make the postseason. No one player is leading the charge, each night someone else has been stepping up. Here’s the latest edition of my player power rankings.
1: Wily Peralta
First Brewer and National League pitcher to make it to 14 wins gives Peralta the coveted number one spot.
2: Jonathan Lucroy
The winner of the Jonathan Lucroy award (quietly doing his job well) goes to Jonathan Lucroy and his .308 batting average/12 home runs.
Honorable Mention: Scooter Gennett
