NOW: Brewers fans react to season-ending loss

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- All good things come to an end. The Brewers' post-season hopes and dreams came to an end Tuesday night, Oct. 12, in Atlanta against the Braves, to the dismay of fans here in Wisconsin.

Before the game, fans were hopeful, but weary.

"You know you've got to stay positive, there's no reason we can't win two games in a row, so we're trying to stay positive and get two more wins here," said Jesse Jirik.

Ahead of the game, fans out at Fiserv Forum, like Jirik, were already expressing concerns, the team down a player with Devin Williams out. Jirik said he was hoping it wouldn't have too big an impact.

"It's been all about hitting right now," said Jirik.

Perhaps that was foreshadowing for what came next. While there were cheers at first, soon, the game was tied up, but the fight wasn't over.

"I kind of wish we could get an early lead, but at least our bats are awake right now, so we just need to take this and finish it," said Brian Marsh.

But as the game pressed on, and Braves took the last home run, it was clear what was about to happen.

"It was heartfelt, it hurt, especially when Hader comes in at the bottom of the eighth and gives a home run like that, it hurts," said Marsh.

Post game, some fans say it isn't the end of the world, and we'll always have the Bucks.

"The pitching was great, they may have dropped the ball, but…Bucks in Six!," said Mallory Wiest.

Marsh said he's already thinking of next season.

"I mean you have to be hopeful as a Brewers fan, year in, year out, we've made it to the playoffs four years in a row, we'll see how the off season goes and we'll try to run it back," said Marsh.

Fans said at least they got to win the division title at American Family Field this year.
