Wisconsin sports fans enjoy great weekend

If you are a baseball and football fan of Wisconsin sports, you definitely have a little hitch in your giddy-up today.
The Milwaukee Brewers, Green Bay Packers and University of Wisconsin Badgers all posted victories last weekend.
The Badgers (3-0) kicked off the weekend with a convincing 35-14 Big Ten victory over rival Michigan on Saturday. It was supposed to be a classic Big Ten matchup between the No. 11 ranked Wolverines against No. 13 Badgers. However, Wisconsin made it look easy jumping to a 35-0 third-quarter lead before the Wolverines could even score.
On Sunday, the surprising Packers (3-0) bolted to a 7-0 lead before holding off the Denver Broncos, 27-16, at Lambeau Field.
Also on Sunday, the Brewers won their fourth straight game and completed a weekend sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates in their final home stand of the season at Miller Park. The Brewers, despite losing All-Star outfielder Christian Yelich to injury earlier this month, have a Major League best 17-4 record in September and are in the heat of the National League playoff race for not only a wild-card berth, but also the NL Central Division title with the St. Louis Cardinals.
Despite St. Louis sweeping the rival Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field, and holding a three-game edge on the second-place Brewers entering the final week of the season, the Redbirds and Cubbies meet the final three games of the season in St. Louis. The Brewers, meanwhile, finish the season with three games at Cincinnati and three more against the Rockies in Colorado.
It should be another interesting week in Wisconsin.
