The numbers are starting to get mind-boggling for the Brewers.
With their 3-2 victory over the Cubs on Sunday, the Brewers not only won for the 27th time in 32 games, but they also improved their home mark to an amazing 50-16.
"The home record is so unbelievable, even when we add on to it, I don't think about it," manager Ron Roenicke said. "That's a lot of wins. The guys continue to play well here.
"I have a hard time looking at numbers. It's still too early."
It might still be early, but the Brewers have opened a 10 1/2-game lead in the NL Central over St. Louis -- the largest division lead in franchise history.
The Brewers are 27 games over .500 for the first time since they finished 95-67 in 1982. It has been an astounding streak of winning that has been difficult for most folks to grasp, including their manager.
"I expect to play this hot; I just don't know how long any team can do it," Roenicke said.
"I don't know if you can run out the season this hot, but I do expect us to be this good. I think we're playing great baseball."
