Braun, Yelich blast Brewers to key win over Tigers

  • National League playoff picture needs two tiebreaker games

Yelich has the batting title sewn up at.323 and needs one home run and two RBI to tie for the HR and RBI titles - if Javier Baez and Nolan Arenado stand pat.

Milwaukee trailed Chicago by as many as five games in September, but manager Craig Counsell's club pushed the season to an extra day with a furious finish and then used its deep lineup and bullpen to outlast the playoff-tested Cubs. "I don't really know what to do", Yelich said.

"Coming over here, they gave me an opportunity to show them that I could still pitch, still compete at the highest level and be with a team that's doing that every single day", Gonzalez said.

Both the Brewers and the Cubs have also already clinched a playoff spot, so they will head to the playoffs regardless of today's results.

- Flashing Leather. It seems nearly every game, Arenado turns in a highlight-reel play at third base.

"We're not dead in the water", Maddon said.

Anthony Rizzo got off to a slow start before going on a tear.

"There's no question in my mind the vibe in the stadium flipped (Saturday)", Counsell said.

Joakim Soria (3-1) got the win with a scoreless seventh. Jeremy Jeffress struck out the side in the ninth to notch his 15th save. "MVP!" when he went to right field in the top of the first and then came to bat in the bottom of the frame.

Miller Park was raucous Saturday night for Game 2 of the three-game set.

But the Brewers bounced back behind Yelich again. Jones bounced into a fielder's choice before Castellanos singled.

The game was tied at 1 before Milwaukee opened the eighth with three straight hits.

Starter Daniel Norris retired eight of the first nine batters before running into trouble after giving up Cain's infield single with two outs in the third.

Castellanos' 23rd homer of the season cut Milwaukee's lead to 5-4 in the fifth. That is some of the things you need to see. Milwaukee pulled even on the final weekend. Attanasio, who was in attendance on Friday, said he hurt himself running across the beach at Malibu to rescue his family dog after it got tangled up with a pit bull. Attanasio helped his wife, Debbie, separate the two dogs, but said that didn't realize the extent of his injury.

Rookie right-hander Spencer Turnbull (0-1, 5.73) might not enjoy the experience quite as much, especially if Yelich continues his torrid second-half pace. The right-hander recorded his first quality start in the majors on Tuesday, allowing one run on six hits in six innings against Minnesota.

Jose Quintana is scheduled to start for the Cubs, while the Brewers have not yet named their starting pitcher. He has four straight 100-RBI seasons, making him the first Cubs left-handed hitter to drive in at least 100 in four different years.
