Milwaukee Brewers Notes, Quotes 2008-10-06
--2B Rickie Weeks was removed from the Brewers' NL Division Series roster after tearing cartilage in his left knee Saturday night trying to beat out an infield hit in Game 3. Weeks would have been ineligible for the next round had the Brewers advanced, but that's a moot point because he is facing surgery at some point.

--SS Alcides Escobar was activated to replace 2B Rickie Weeks on the roster but did not play in Game 4.

--SS J.J. Hardy led the Brewers in hitting in the NLDS with a .429 batting average (6-for-14), with a double, two RBIs and two runs.

--1B Prince Fielder was 0-for-12 in the NLDS before socking a seventh-inning homer off Philadelphia RHP Joe Blanton. Fielder finished the series 1-for-14 (.071).

--The Brewers bullpen did not allow a run for 16 2/3 innings in the NLDS until Philadelphia's Pat Burrell hit a two-out homer off RHP Guillermo Mota in the eighth inning of Game 4. For the series, the relief corps allowed one run in 18 innings (0.50 ERA).

BY THE NUMBERS: 2-8 -- The Brewers' record this season against Philadelphia, including 1-3 in the NL Division Series.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "This was a stepping stone for a lot of them. They get the experience to see what it's like to be in a playoff series, as well as battle their butts off the last week of the season to get in it." -- Interim manager Dale Sveum.
