Despite an 8-1 drubbing against Arizona in Game 3 of the NLDS, odds are the Milwaukee Brewers, holding a 2-1 series lead, will advance to play either the Phillies or Cardinals in the NLCS, at least according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
Including this postseason, of the 65 best-of-five playoffs series in which a team trailed 0-2, only seven have recovered to win three straight.
I’ve listed those great comebacks, or in the case of the ’84 Cubs, collapses, below.
