The Brewers are seeking an unprecedented third straight playoff berth during this unusual 60-game season after reaching the National League championship series in 2018 and losing in the wild-card game last year.

The Brewers franchise dates back to 1970. The team’s only previous back-to-back playoff appearances before the last two years came in 1981-82.

Milwaukee will try to get back to the postseason following an offseason overhaul that included the losses of catcher Yasmani Grandal and third baseman Mike Moustakas in free agency.
