"These guys just seem to be having a good time and it translates to the fans," said Paul Lemley, a fan we caught up with in Milwaukee's Third Ward ahead of Tuesday night's game.

Lemley's love for the Brewers runs deep.

"I actually worked at the stadium when I was in high school and college," said Lemley.

Over the years, Lemley watched the team transform into what it is today.

"Throughout the entire organization, you can tell this is something different," said Lemley.
