Midway Mark in Prep Football Tonight; Bryant Belts Cubs Over Brewers

Eric Sogard is leading off for Milwaukee

If the Cubs and Brewers keep this up all weekend, neither one might be left standing to throw a punch by the time the playoffs start. And the good news is the Brew Crew stayed only a game behind the Colorado Rockies in the race for the second NL wild card spot as Colorado lost to San Diego 3-0 on Thursday.

Jay fouled off 10 consecutive pitches during that 15-pitch at-bat before hitting a single to right.

Byron Buxton's two-run single capped a three-run fourth inning that snapped a 1-1 tie and launched the visiting Minnesota Twins to a 12-1 rout of the Tigers in Detroit last night. With two outs, pinch hitters Keon Broxton and Jesus Aguilar drew back-to-back walks off Cubs relievers Brian Duensing and Pedro Strop, respectively.

The Milwaukee Brewers announced Friday they will start selling tickets to the National League Division Series next week, despite them not now holding a spot in the postseason.

Wade Davis got the win.

The Brewers had rallied from a 2-0 deficit.

Arrieta was making his first start since September 4 at Pittsburgh, when he left in the third inning of a game against the Pirates with a right hamstring strain.

In the 10, Bryant led off with a walk against Brewers All-Star closer Corey Knebel, and Rizzo singled to right to send Bryant to third before Zobrist was intentionally walked to load the bases.

Santana, clubbed his 28th home run of the season earlier in the game, off of Cubs starter Jake Arrieta.
