Down goes the No. 1 seed! Jesus Aguilar leads the NL in home runs -- even though he didn't start consecutive games until May 1 and 2 -- but he hit a few too many line drives during his 4 minutes on the clock and goes down to Rhys Hoskins, 17 to 11. Still, he's gone from a player once released by the Indians to one of the best feel-good stories of the first half.

Brutal series for the Brewers in Pittsburgh as the Pirates sweep a five-game series. Sunday's loss was a dagger: The Pirates tie it up in the bottom of the ninth, the Brewers score in the 10th, but the Pirates score twice to walk it off. This little six-game winning streak for the Pirates also puts them on the fringes of the wild-card race, meaning they not be so eager to trade off some veterans if they stay hot after the All-Star break.

Here are the current and future cap implications in Milwaukee: The Bucks will have $116M in salary this season after the Ersan Ilyasova and Brook Lopez signing. The salary takes into account 13 guaranteed and 2 non-guaranteed contracts (Brandon Jennings and Tyler Zeller). For 2019-20, cap flexibility will be determined by the $13M player option of Khris Middleton. If the forward (and Eric Bledsoe) does not return, Milwaukee will have $28M in room. Retaining Middleton (at his $19.5M cap hold) would have the Bucks with $9M in cap space.

The $129.8M luxury tax apron (hard cap) made it unrealistic for Milwaukee to match any offer sheet north of $12M for Jabari Parker. The apron was triggered when the Bucks agreed to terms with Ersan Ilyasova. The unlikely bonuses of Tony Snell and John Henson plus the pending signing of Brook Lopez left Milwaukee with only $8M in room below the apron.
