The Brewers win one of the most thrilling games of the year, tying the Cubs on Orlando Arcia's home run in the ninth and then winning 4-3 on Travis Shaw's two-run walk-off home run in the 10th. Both homers came off Cubs closer Wade Davis as the Brewers avoid what would have been a third straight loss to the Cubs in 10 innings. Catching the Cubs is still unlikely, but the win puts pressure on the Rockies in the wild-card race.

Travis Shaw hit a 2 run HR off Wade Davis to beat the Cubs 4-3 in 10 innings in yet another dramatic finish at Miller Park. Davis blew his first save of the season in the ninth inning when Orlando Arcia homered but Joe Maddon left him in the game after the Cubs took the lead in the 10th on a Jon Jay RBI single. Ryan Braun doubled with one out before Shaw homered. The outcome overshadowed a great game by Jay as well as Kyle Hendricks who went 6 innings allowing just a run. Ian Happ was on base 3 times.

The last time two teams played three extra inning games in a row in the same series was in May, 2015. The Pirates and Cardinals were the teams involved.

Wade Davis gave up a solo HR to Orlando Arcia for his first blown save of the year. Arcia hit an 0-1 fastball down the left field line to lead off the ninth inning ruining Davis' perfect season. He was 32 for 32 until that hit. Davis got the next three batters to keep the game alive for the Cubs.

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

Kyle Hendricks has been getting better and better since a stint on the DL and Saturday was no different though he wasn't AS efficient with his pitches. Hendricks went 6 innings giving up 8 hits and one walk while allowing just one run. He threw 112 pitches, 75 of them strikes. He's near playoff ready.
