May the force be with you, Brewers.
MLB's best team (by record) went into Cincinnati and not only faced the Cincinnati Reds, but had a few intergalactic friends hanging around on Star Wars Night.
Darth Vader even threw out the first pitch. Matt Lepay of the Brewers TV network analyzes his form.
(We fear Vader would have pulled a Jedi mind trick on Bob Uecker if he said "Juuuuuuuuust a bit outside," that it might have been a replication of Andre the Giant years ago.)

But it wasn't just Darth Vader. Star Wars was all over Friday night's Brewers win.
We're not sure if Carlos Gomez's co-outfielders found a Brewers fitted hat their size, but their height could be an advantage in joining Gomez's efforts to rob Reds of home runs like he's done twice to Joey Votto.
