The Brewers aren't gaining ground on the Cubs, who have won seven in a row, but they have gained ground on the Rockies. It was a bit of a bad-luck loss for Colorado. The Giants beat the Rockies with a run in the ninth, thanks to an infield hit, a bunt single and an opposite-field groundball. The Brewers (8-2 in their past 10 games) are now just a game behind the Rockies for the second wild card. With the Cardinals lurking 3.5 back.

Looking to pick up a game on the Twins, the Mariners blew a chance to take the lead in the seventh. With runners at the corners and one out, Yonder Alonso wandered too far off third as Guillermo Heredia pulled his bat back on a possible safety squeeze and was picked off. Predictably, Heredia then singled, but the Mariners failed to score. Game still tied.

Pedro Baez continues to pitch himself out of a key role in the Dodgers bullpen - - and maybe off the postseason roster entirely. Entering with a 2-1 lead in the seventh, he gave up four runs and picked up the loss. In August and September he's allowed 16 runs and 31 baserunners in 15 innings (and five HRs). It's time for Dave Roberts to stop relying on Baez to get key outs.

The Brewers will not go quietly into the night. They shut out the Pirates for the second game in a row, with Domingo Santana's fourth-inning home run holding up as the game's only run. Santana is having an unsung solid season (26 HR, .371 OBP) and Anthony Swarzak (1.99 ERA with the Brewers) continues to be one of the best bullpen acquisitions at the trade deadline.
