Milwaukee/Los Angeles 59 And ’59? Dodgers/Braves 59 And ’59!!

October 2, 2018

There is still a long way to go, but the cities (Milwaukee and Los Angeles) that clashed in an unscheduled playoff for the National League Pennant 59 years ago in 1959, are the top two N.L. seeds and will have the home advantage in the baseball tournament quarterfinals/division series.

The Milwaukee Brewers gained the N.L. top seed, I believe for the first time, winning the N.L. Central in an extra game, (3-1) at Chicago vs the Cubs.

Milwaukee will face the winner of tonight’s “10 to 8” teams game, again in Chicago, as the Colorado Rockies will be the opponent.

Meanwhile the L.A. Dodgers, who lost Game 7 of the World Series at home last year to the Houston Astros, will have the home advantage and be big favorites vs the Atlanta Braves, yes the once Milwaukee Braves that faced L.A. in the aforementioned ’59 ‘off, in the quarters/division series.
