69-84, 4th in NL Cent

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Tough loss for the Brewers. With a chance to tie the Rockies for the second wild card and gain a game on the Cubs, Aaron Wilkerson made his first career start and didn't last long, but the Brewers still took a 4-3 lead in the seventh. Corey Knebel's throwing error on a little dribbler allowed a run to score in the eighth, however, and then Adam Frazier clocked his first career walk-off home run, a two-run shot off Knebel. The Pirates snap a seven-game skid, but that L1 is going to sting for the Brewers.
