Brewers Catch Cubs

The Brewers defeated the Astros 9-1 Tuesday night, and the Cubs lost to the Reds, so the Brewers have reclaimed a share of first place. Actually, they technically have first place to themselves - the Cubs have played two more games than the Brewers and have one more loss, so the Brewers' W-L percentage is slightly higher, and they control their own destiny. If they win the rest of their games, they're in. Obviously, though, that's easier said than done, and tonight it actually got tougher, since they lost Ben Sheets, who left the game in the second inning tonight with a hamstring problem.
