    Braun, Davies lead Brewers in sweeping Rockies

    Most teams play better at home than on the road but the Milwaukee Brewers have taken that trend to an extreme during their 2016 rebuilding season. The Brewers capped a three-game sweep of the Colorado Rockies with a 7-1 victory Wednesday afternoon at Miller Park, boosting their winning streak to four on the heels of a six-game losing streak on the road.

Meanwhile, top prospect Jose De Leon continues to do his thing in the Pacific Coast League -- a hitter's league, mind you -- striking out 10 over seven one-hit innings Monday. He now has 32 strikeouts to two walks over his last 27 innings. That's Noah Syndergaard-type stuff. He's too good for the minors, and he's already 24. What exactly is the holdup? Yeah, the Dodgers could try their hand with Brock Stewart or a severely limited Julio Urias again, but last I checked, they're actually trying to win. Now is
