KEY SPORTS Fans support Brewers even without postseason THE MILWAUKEE BREWERSwind up a disap- pointing season with 11 home games this month and three in October. After winning the Central Division of the National League in 2011, the team had been expected to be playoff bound again this season. But hitting and relief pitching failed, leaving the team to play the spoiler role as the season ends. Surprisingly, fan support for the team continues to be strong. Weather is no problem at Miller Park, a state-of-the-art facility with a retractable roof that guarantees all games are played. Miller Park has consistently been ranked as one of the top baseball stadiums in the U.S., especially for its features and food.
