Though the 2021 season didn't end as hoped for the Milwaukee Brewers, they still had reason to celebrate on Wednesday night. Starter Corbin Burnes was named the 2021 NL Cy Young award winner after a dominant year.

Burns took time after his win to heap praise on the organization and his teammates for helping him get to this point.

Burnes made sure to recognize the award win as a "team effort" and said it couldn't have happened without "the organization's help." In a moment that was about his accomplishments, it speaks volumes that Burnes instead turned the attention toward others.

Burnes was the clear choice after his 2021 campaign. He led the majors in ERA and FIP, going 11-5 with 234 strikeouts across 167.0 innings.

Teammate Brandon Woodruff also finished fifth in the voting, demonstrating how strong Milwaukee's staff was this season.

Those two will look to headline a championship-worthy rotation once again in 2022.
