Brewers' Jimmy Nelson lost for season with shoulder injury

Cubs Division Lead Shrinks as Cardinals Brewers Surge

Sandoval finished 1 for 3 with four RBIs. Nelson was removed after five innings with shoulder soreness, but the Cubs mustered just a walk off the Brewers bullpen. He has been the Brewers' best starting option this season, but given that we are in September, that doesn't necessarily mean that the Crew is out of the race just yet. Travis Shaw and Orlando Arcia each hit a two-run double, Ryan Braun scored on a balk by Grimm, and Perez had a sacrifice fly.

Instead of going with rookie Brandon Woodruff on the hill, the Brewers chose to give Matt Garza another shot and it backfired. Nelson, who is 12-6 with a 3.49 ERA, has a strained right rotator cuff strain and partial anterior labrum tear.

Padres 8, Diamondbacks 7 • Carlos Asuaje hit a tying single and an error by left fielder David Peralta allowed the go-ahead run to score as San Diego overcame a five-run deficit in the ninth inning on the road. At times this season, he was productive. Against the Milwaukee Brewers, Montgomery has a 10.13 ERA and 1:1 strikeout-to-walk ratio. As the Brewers have shown all year though, baseball isn't always driven by talent. They were unable to find that big clutch hit though.

They came to town this weekend upset that the Cubs moved Friday's game from daytime to night to give themselves a few extra hours of shut-eye after a Thursday night game in Pittsburgh. "To me, if anything, I'd say they're playing like a team that's trying to get in". Nelson would pitch the bottom half of the frame but was ultimately replaced by reliever Josh Hader.

The Cubs' victory over the Pirates lowered their magic number to 19 over the pesky Brewers, but their Central Division number only dropped to 20, as the St. Louis Cardinals have jumped back into second place in the division, one half game ahead of Milwaukee.
