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.
