MILWAUKEE-- Milwaukee Brewers Manager Craig Counsell finished second in the NL Manager of the Year race to Mike Shildt of the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday night. 

The Brewers manager finished with the most first place votes, but lost the overall race to Shildt who finished with more points. It was the first time in MLB history that a manager who never played professional baseball won the award. 

Counsell was also a finalist in 2018, but failed to win last season.

Christian Yelich will be the Brewers final hope to bring home some extra hardware this season as he is a finalist for the MVP award announced on Thursday.
