SEEN AND HEARD AT MILLER PARK

Milwaukee has been overtaken with Brewer Fever. One of baseball’s hapless franchises for more than two decades — the Brewers haven’t had a winning season since 1992 and haven’t made the playoffs since 1982 — this team is starting to take the town by storm.

Evidence of that: The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel yesterday had to make a decision between running a Brewers story or a Green Bay Packers story. Normally, there would be no debate. The Packers have ruled the state of Wisconsin forever. But the editors made the previously unheard-of decision to go with the Brewers.

The real interesting scenario, of course, could come in October if the Brewers are in the playoffs and going head-to-head with Brett Favre and Co. Who wins out then?

BY THE NUMBERS

6 Consecutive quality starts by Shawn Hill in seven outings, the first Nationals pitcher to open the season like that since Livan Hernandez in 2004.

TODAY’S GAME
