Brewers boat-race Cubs, take series
On Monday, the Brewers won in dramatic fashion, defeating the Cubs, 4-3. Tuesday’s game was decidedly more lopsided, albeit still in Milwaukee’s favor.
The Brewers received a strong outing from veteran southpaw Wade Miley, who limited the Cubs to three hits and a run across six innings. He also fanned five batters. Offensively, Milwaukee saw every starter either score a run or drive someone in except for Miley. That’ll do. Of course, they also benefited from a poor Cubs defensive showing:
The Brewers are now four losses back of the Cubs in the Central. They’ll go for the sweep Wednesday.
Voit again comes up big in Yankees win
When the Yankees acquired Luke Voit in July, no one expected him to play much of a role for New York the rest of the way. Not only has Voit found himself in the lineup more frequently than anticipated, he’s performed incredibly well.
On Tuesday, Voit hit a timely go-ahead home run to give the Yankees a lead over the Athletics. It marked his seventh home run in recent weeks:
Keep in mind that Voit had five home runs in 70 games with the Cardinals. He keeps this up, and there’ll be no doubt about whether or not he’ll be in the lineup when the Yankees take on the A’s in the wild-card game.
Red Sox take series from Braves
Theoretically, the Red Sox could meet the Braves in the World Series. If that does happen, the Red Sox will look back at their series with the Braves as a reason for optimism.
On Tuesday, the Red Sox claimed a series win over Atlanta with a 5-1 win. Boston received four scoreless innings from its bullpen after starter Rick Porcello threw five one-run frames. Steve Pearce drove in three, while Xander Bogaerts and Eduardo Nunez added an RBI apiece.
The Red Sox are now 96-44, putting them on pace to win 111 games.
