The Milwaukee Brewers stood strong despite early injuries to begin this season and now they're rolling. Milwaukee has won nine of their last 10 games, opening the door for them to take control of first place in the NL Central at 47-33.

The Brewers' current five-game lead over second place in the division has been a rare feat for this team in recent years.

July 2017 was the last time Milwaukee led the NL Central by five games. It's astounding to think it took nearly four years to return to that point, but here the Brewers are.

However, they'll look to finish things differently this time around. That 2017 squad placed second in the NL Central and missed out on the playoffs despite an 86-76 record.

The Brewers have made the postseason in each of the last three years and they're in great position to do so again. FanDuel Sportsbook has the Brewers as the current -230 favorite in the odds to win the division in 2021.
