2011 MLB Postseason: Will the Diamondbacks or Brewers Capture Game 5?

Wait what? Another Game 5? Ahh the glory of the MLB Postseason. Kirk Gibson's upstart Arizona Diamondbacks and Ron Roenicke's Milwaukee Brewers will be duking it out on Friday afternoon to decide who will be heading to the National League Championship Series. Who do I think will come out on top? Let's take a look.
We really shouldn't be surprised that this series went five games. I know I didn't predict that but these clubs are such good home teams, the fact that the home team has won every game this series bodes well for Milwaukee. You know what also bodes well for the Brew Crew? The fact that Yovani Gallardo, who was excellent in game 1 of this series, will be on the hill. The Diamondbacks will give the Brewers all they've got but I think Milwaukee will get the clutch hits they got in the first two games of this series, Gallardo will pitch a gem, and they will reach their first NLCS ever (they did last make an LCS in the American League in 1982, when they went to the World Series).
