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.

Rockies have little breathing room

The Rockies' shutout loss at San Diego has put them just above even money for the second wild-card berth. Meanwhile, the Brewers failed to capitalize with an extra-inning loss to the Cubs. The Cardinals were the main beneficiary after a win, picking up a game on each.

How to fix the Brewers' biggest problem

The Brewers have a strikeout-prone lineup, and that can become particularly problematic come playoff time. Is there any quick fix for such an issue?

Cubs rally to down Brewers (1:17)

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

A gut punch of a loss for the Brewers as the Cubs just about wrap up the NL Central with an extra-inning win, but just like Wednesday, the Brewers made a crucial miscue in the field that led to a game-tying run and later lost on a two-run home run. They're now 4.5 back of the Cubs and they need to win the next three games of this series to have a chance at the division title.

Will that ninth inning be the inning Brewers fans remember if they miss the playoffs by one game? Late covering first and then a two-out, two-strike hit to tie it, and then they load the bases with one out in the bottom of the frame and can't score the winning run. It's now a game of bullpen depth. Oliver Drake on for the Brewers -- who are 4-9 in extra innings.

The Brewers were one strike from victory, but Javy Baez hit a slow grounder up the middle off a pretty good splitter from Jeremy Jeffress for the game-tying base hit. With Orlando Arcia shifted way over towards third base, he had no chance to make a play. And with a heavily taxed bullpen, if the Brewers don't win it here it will be interesting to see who Craig Counsell uses in extra innings.

The Brewers take the lead! Domingo Santana doubles, steals third off Justin Wilson and then Eric Thames lines a single to right-center over a drawn-in infield. Craig Counsell could have hit for Thames, but left him in for the lefty-lefty matchup. It appears former Brewers closer Jeremy Jeffress will pitch the top of the ninth with Corey Knebel getting the day off after pitching three games in a row.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Domingo Santana homers for the third straight game and the Brewers are on the board. It's not a must-win game, but it kind of feels like a must-win game if Milwaukee is going to win the Central. With a win, they're 2.5 back with nine games remaining; with a loss, 4.5 back (and 5 in the loss column). Trouble is: Corey Knebel and Anthony Swarzak have both pitched three days in a row. Will they be available in the late innings?
