Stacy Revere/Getty ImagesThe Milwaukee Brewers avoided a late disaster to escape Game 1 of the National League Division Series with a 3-2 win in 10 innings over the Colorado Rockies.Christian Yelich started the scoring with a two-run homer in the bottom of the third inning. He also worked a walk in the bottom of the 10th after falling behind 0-2 against Adam Ottavino Freddie Freeman Jersey , took second on a wild pitch and scored the winning run on Mike Moustakas' walk-off RBI single.FOX Sports FOXSportsThis is OCTOBER BASEBALL! The Brewers walk things off in Game 1 of the NLDS! O0yUACs19aMilwaukee closer Jeremy Jeffress, who was dealing with neck spasms last week and wasn't available during the NL Central tiebreaker against the Chicago Cubs on Monday, looked rusty in his first appearance since Sept. 29.The Rockies tied the game with two runs on three hits against Jeffress in the ninth. They seemed set for a bigger inning when Charlie Blackmon was initially awarded a ground-rule double that scored one run and put runners on second and third with no outs.Replay showed the ball hit just to the right side of the chalk, resulting in a foul ball:FOX Sports: MLB MLBONFOXOh. My. Goodness.Baseball is truly a game of inches. Sug4bri5f0Blackmon eventually hit an RBI single to get Colorado on the board, which was followed two batters later by Nolan Arenado's sacrifice fly to even the score.Opting to go with a bullpen day to start the postseason,sixBrewers pitchers combined to hold the Rockies tofourhits with12strikeouts in the win.On the losing side, Colorado's pitching did everything possible to keep the game close. Starter Antonio Senzatela's homer to Yelich was his only real blemish. The 23-year-old allowed three hits and two walks over five innings.Christian Yelich's Red-Hot Hitting Will Carry Brewers OffenseYelich has been playing at a high level all season, but he's been particularly locked in down the stretch.Since Sept. 3鈥攖he day Milwaukee began play five games behind the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central鈥擸elich has gone32-for-84with 10 home runs, 31 RBI, 23 walks and 16 strikeouts in 26 games.FOX Sports: MLB MLBONFOXYELICH!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?This guy is on straight 馃敟!Brewers take the 2-0 lead! GwmERP9tGeGoing back a little further, Yelich has been directly responsible for nearly one-third of all the runs Milwaukee has scored since the start of September:Cespedes Family BBQ CespedesBBQSince September 1st, the Brewers have scored 149 runs.Christian Yelich has either scored or driven in 50 of those runs. Thats just over 33%. The dude is locked in. YMUN4T9owOThe Brewers have quality depth in their lineup鈥攆our players hit at least 20 homers during the regular season, andYelich and Jesus Aguilar drove in over 100 runs鈥攕o they are capable of scoring runs with anyone in the NL.Yelich, though, is what makes the entire group work because of his ability to hit for average, power and get on base to put pressure on opposing hitters. He will carry the Brewers lineup as far as it will go in the postseason.Deep Bullpen Makes Brewers NL's Most Dangerous TeamOne day after the Oakland Athletics' bullpen experiment crashed and burned against the New York Yankees, Milwaukee showed the virtues of using a host of relievers in lieu of a traditional starter.Brandon Woodruff, who made four starts in 19 appearances during the regular season, showed no nerves at the start of the game. The right-hander had three strikeouts over three scoreless innings.Corey Knebel and Josh Hader did their part with four strikeouts over three hitless innings before giving way to Jeffress. Joakim Soria, who had a 3.12 ERA and 75 strikeouts over 60.2 innings during the regular season http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-bobby-cox-jersey , didn't even pitch until the 10th inning."Everybody is rested. That's the first thing," Brewers manager Craig Counselltold reportersWednesday of his decision to go with the bullpen in Game 1. "And I think for our team, we have鈥攍argely, we're trying to get away from what the word 'starter' and 'reliever' means. That's how we're going to get through the postseason, I think."Jeffress had gone 11 straight appearances without giving up a run, so his struggles Thursday aren't a major concern yet.This Brewers pitching staff is built in a similar fashion to the 2015 Kansas City Royals squad that won the World Series. Luke Hochevar, Kelvin Herrera and Wade Davis logged 44 strikeouts and gave up one run over 35 innings.Brewers relievers led the NL with 10.38 strikeouts per nine innings andrankedsecond with 7.1 FanGraphs wins above replacement and a 3.47 ERA.If they can just get adequate four-inning starts from Chacin and Chase Anderson, the bullpen is more than capable of handling things the rest of the way to keep the opposition at bay.This has been the year of the reliever in MLB, so it's fitting a Brewers team led by its bullpen would be the most dangerous in the National League.Rockies Need Fast Fix for Offensive IssuesAs impressive as Milwaukee's pitching was Thursday, the Rockies have a significant problem they need to correct if they want to make a deep October run.Here are the Rockies' offensive numbers away from Coors Field during the regular season in 2018:Zachary quot;Doomquot; Rymer zachrymerThe Rockies had a 78 wRC+ on the road this year. Thats worse than what the Giants (82 wRC+) had overall.So, the Rockies not having homefield advantage in this or any series is...kinda big.Joe Sheehan joe_sheehanRoadRockies hit .225/.295/.370 this year.Over the last 11 road games, the Rockies have scored 26 runs and been shut out twice during that span. They've racked upfour runs over23 innings dating back to their 2-1 win against the Cubs on Tuesday.Even though the Rockies are often known for boasting a loaded lineup, they only hadthree regularswith an above-average OPS+ (Blackmon, Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story). Their slugging percentage is 133 points lower on the road (.370) than at Coors (.503).Colorado only had five at-bats with a runner in scoring position Thursday. The pitching has more than held up its end of the bargain lately, giving up three runs in the past two games.Unless the Rockies can muster some offense when Blackmon, Arenado and Story aren't in the batter's box, they will be looking at another early playoff exit.What's Next?The Brewers will host the Rockies in Game 2 on Friday at 4:15 p.m. ET. Colorado will try to even the series behind Tyler Anderson (7-9, 4.55 ERA). Milwaukee will send Jhoulys Chacin (15-8, 3.50 ERA) to the mound on three days' rest after he logged 5.2 innings against the Cubs. The mad dash for MLB contenders to improve their respective rosters is on.Manny Machado's trade to the Los Angeles Dodgers and Brad Hand's move to the Cleveland Indians set the wheels in motion on the trade market, and now the teams that missed out on the two players will look elsewhere to improve ahead of the July 31 deadline.Most of the franchises at http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-bob-uecker-jersey , or near, the top of each division are in the hunt for roster improvements, with relief pitchers and infielders the most coveted targets.Below is a look at a trio of teams searching for upgrades in order to be in contention for a playoff position in September.Philadelphia PhilliesThe Philadelphia Phillies are in quite the conundrum after failing to secure the services of Machado.Machado was the ideal fit for the Phillies because he would've erased their top weakness at shortstop.Although there are a handful of quality infielders available, some of them don't fit into the Phillies lineup as perfectly as Machado would have.A potential deal for Kansas City third baseman Mike Moustakas doesn't make sense because the Phillies have Maikel Franco at the hot corner, and going after a second baseman isn't ideal either with Cesar Hernandez locked into that spot on the diamond.If you eliminate second and third basemen from the Phillies' potential trade prospects, that leaves a thin shortstop crop to choose from. Minnesota's Eduardo Escobar could be an option, as Fancred's Jon Heyman noted:Jon Heyman JonHeymanAssuming phillies don鈥檛 land manny now, they鈥檒l still be targeting a SS, preferably one who鈥檚 a threat with bat. Eduardo Escobar could make sense. Most SS potentially on market r glove guys: Iglesias, alcides, Rojas, old friend galvis, hechavarriaThe Phillies have more hope in the relief market. There are a handful of quality arms left, and the Baltimore Orioles'Zach Brittonis of interest, per Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan:Jeff Passan JeffPassanThe relief market is picking up, and while nothing is imminent, the A鈥檚 and Phillies are among the teams shopping, sources tell Yahoo Sports. Oakland is one of at least five teams in on Jeurys Familia, per sources. And the Phillies are taking a long look at closer Zach Britton.Britton would likely come at a steeper price than other relievers because he's the best available player at his position, but the 30-year-old would boost a young bullpen.The Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals are right on the Phillies' heels in the National League East Tyler Flowers Jersey , but they will likely be reluctant to give up a ton of minor league value at the deadline.Milwaukee BrewersCurrently three games back of the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central and in the mix for the NL wild card, the Milwaukee Brewers figure to be in the playoff race at the season's end.Milwaukee must improve in order to push Chicago in the division and stave off a collection of teams in the wild-card race, including Arizona, San Francisco, Colorado, St. Louis, Pittsburgh and Washington.Just like the Phillies, the Brewers need to upgrade the middle of their infield, but they possess a little more positional flexibility and seem to be looking at second base and shortstop as areas to upgrade.One of the potential targets for the Brewers could be New York Mets second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera, per MLB.com's Mark Feinsand:Mark Feinsand FeinsandFamilia not the only Mets player drawing interest; source says multiple teams have inquired about Asdrubal Cabrera, though no deal is imminent. Brewers and D-backs believed to be among potential suitors.The Brewers have been linked with Minnesota second baseman Brian Dozier as well, per The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal:Ken Rosenthal Ken_RosenthalAmong the players the #Brewers are expected to target now that they have lost Machado: #Twins 2B Brian Dozier. Team also will explore pitching upgrades as well.Although Cabrera and Dozier don't possess Machado's firepower at the plate, they might turn out to be better options in the long run.Cabrera and Dozier come at cheaper costs, and they would still be able to provide a similar impact in a lineup headlined by Jesus Aguilar and Christian Yelich.Cabrera is having the better season of two. He is hitting .282 with 17 home runs and 53 RBI, while Dozier has a .227 average to go with 16 home runs and 49 RBI.While Cabrera might be harder to pry away because of the Mets' high demands for their trade targets, he would be the ideal option given his better season at the plate and postseason experience from his time with the Indians, Nationals and Mets. New York YankeesThe New York Yankees have the bats to contend in the American League East and wild-card race, as seven players on their roster eclipsed the double-digit home run mark by the All-Star Game.However, the Yankees are in need of pitching help in order to compete with the Boston Red Sox for the division title and stay in front of the wild-card competition.The Yankees' starting rotation is led by AL Cy Young candidate Luis Severino, but they need to bolster the back part of the group.Bullpen reinforcements are also necessary http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-orlando-cepeda-jersey , and if it wasn't for the high prices set by selling teams, the Yankees might have brought in a reliever already.SNY's Andy Martino reportedthat talks between the Yankees and Padres over Hand stalled after San Diego asked for third baseman Miguel Andujar in return.The same issues could hurt the Yankees in the chase for rotation arms as well, as potential deals for J.A. Happ or Cole Hamels could cost them a top prospect, as Martino noted.The Yankees are also in the hunt for Britton, along with many other contenders, per Heyman:Jon Heyman JonHeymanthere are many teams looking at Zach Britton. wouldnt surprise anyone if went right up until the deadline. cubs, Phillies, yankees, Red Sox, possibly Astros, dodgers, giants, others.The second-place team in the AL East has to improve its pitching staff, but at least for now, it sounds like it won't mortgage stars of the future to get a deal done.While the price tag for the best available players might be high at the moment, the demands from teams could go down as the deadline approaches as they look to offload assets before they decrease in value.
