The Brewers are closing in on the NL Central title! No, don't call it a jinx; this seems like destiny for Milwaukee. Tied 1-1 at Wrigley Field with the Cubs in Game 163, the visitors used a clutch 8th inning to take the lead. With runners on second and third and no outs, Lorenzo Cain got things going with this RBI-single.
After Cain recorded the big base-knock, Christian Yelich stepped up to the plate with all eyes on him, but he struck out on a sick slider from Randy Rosario.
Unfortunately for Cubs fans, Ryan Braun then stepped up to the plate and roped a single to add another one, putting the Brewers up 3-1.
