MILWAUKEE Mike Todd Gurley Jersey Moustakas stood in the concourse outside of the Brewers clubhouse just after Fridays 4-0 win over the Rockies.Moustakas ki sed his wife, hugged family members and took pictures with well-wishers. Bob Uecker approached, hugged him like a son, and clapped him on the back. The roar of MOOSE! from the Miller Park crowd of 44,547 had barely quieted.The whole of Milwaukee and most of Wisconsin has had its hero for the past two nights, and its a guy who wasnt wearing their uniform until July 28.MORE:On Thursday, Moustakas hit the walkoff knock in the bottom of the 10th, and the next nighthis bases-loaded single in the eighth inning might seem le s significant in the box score, but it gave the Brewers the first of what ended up being three valuable insurance runs that would lead to a 2-0 Milwaukee NLDS lead over the Rockies.In playoff baseball, you want to keep adding runs on, Moustakas said afterward. It just gives you a little more breathing room, youre not tense.The one-run game until that point had at times felt like plenty, given Colorados struggles to score and the Milwaukee bullpens ability to make even a single run leadfeel insurmountable. But in Game 1, the Rockies had been able to very suddenly erase a two-run deficit late in the game, so that breathing room was needed.Nobody out, bases loaded and the Brewers up by only one isan easy spot to Arden Key Jersey fall to the temptation of trying to come up big.Just dont do too much, Moustakas said, reciting a familiar baseball cliche. I knew they had the infield in, so just try and get something through the infield and score that run. I was able to get a pitch to do that and did it.The pitch was a 2-1 fastball, and Moustakas dumped it into right field, scoring Christian Yelich. From there, journeyman backup catcher Erik Kratz hit a single to left that scored two more runs for Milwaukee.MORE: Rocky Bleier Jersey Moustakas has tasted champagne and postseason succe s with the Royals in 2014 and 2015, anduses his experience to be an example for his teammates.His experience, its important. It really is, manager Craig Counsell said after the game."I was talking to Hernan Perez before the game about making sure we stay in the proce s and making sure we dont put the result ahead of the proce s in out at-bats, and I think Moose is doing a heck of a job with that.Moustakas said that the 2014 Royals team that lost the World Series to the Giants struggled with not letting the results come ahead of the proce s, and it cost them a championship.All of us were trying to do too much. We were all so excited, so jacked up, Moustakas said of that team.The next year, of course, they won Rob Gronkowski Women Jersey the World Series, and Moustakas said that he sees a similar kind of calmne s in this Brewers team. A lot of that, he said, has come from the fact that the last three weeks of the season have felt like they were already in the playoffs. Beginning with a series at home against the Cubs in the second week of September Troy Apke Jersey and all the way up to Mondays Game 163 to decide the division, theyve been operating in playoff mode the whole time, Moustakas said.MORE:The Miller Park crowd that has adopted him so quickly was galvanized even further on Sept. 26, when calling for them to fill the stadium for the last few days of the season. Moustakas said that he and the others are feeding off of the energy of those bigger crowds.This place is awesome. These fans here are so pa sionate, and theyve come the last couple of weeks after Yeliposted that thing, its been unbelievable, Moustakas said.Barely a week after he joined the Brewers, Moustakas made headlines when a fan bumped in to him at a store, but didnt have a pen for an autograph. Moustakas improvised by grabbing a pack of Sharpies that he later paid for, ripping them open, and signing. A friend captured the moment and shared it on Twitter, where it quickly went viral.With moments like that and big hits in playoff games, its been easy for Milwaukee to fall for Moose andthe other way around.After so many years in Kansas City, Moustakas tested free agency last winter, taking until March to end up re-signing there. Now, he may have found a new city to call home for a while.I wouldnt hate it here, this teams awesome, Moustakas said. Its just Christian Kirksey Women Jersey a fun city to play baseball in.
