(Chicago, IL) — The Brewers lead the Majors with 29 homers this season, and they’re on pace to hit a big league record 293 for the year. It’s anybody’s guess whether Milwaukee will continue its power surge — but manager Craig Counsell says he likes what he sees so far. He says the players are putting some good swings on the ball, and Chicago Cubs’ manager Joe Maddon says the Brewers are “puncturing hurricane force stuff” — meaning that the Crew hit five homers with winds blowing in on Monday night and Wednesday at Wrigley Field. Eric Thames is tied for the Major League lead with seven homers, Ryan Braun has five, and Travis Shaw has belted two in his last two games. The Brewers’ team record is 231 homers for a season, and the last time they led the National League in that department was in 2012 when they hit 202.
