Road success helps Brewers take commanding NL Central lead
By STEVE MEGARGEE AP Sports Writer
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.
