Road success helps Brewers take commanding NL Central lead

MILWAUKEE (AP) – The Milwaukee Brewers are returning home with the biggest division lead of any National League team.

Their success away from Milwaukee has enabled them to build a seven-game cushion in the NL Central.

Milwaukee’s weekend sweep at Cincinnati improved the Brewers’ road record to 29-18.

That’s the best road record of any major league team.

The Brewers are 27-21 at home and begin a five-game homestand Tuesday against the Kansas City Royals.

The Brewers’ 35-16 record since May 22 is the best in baseball during that stretch.
