The Milwaukee Brewers snapped the St Louis Cardinals' six-game winning streak with a 4-1 victory in MLB on Wednesday.
The Brewers are barely holding on in the race for the National League (NL) Central as they trail St Louis by 5.5 games in the division.
Milwaukee are also 3.5 games behind the Chicago Cubs for second in the division and the second wildcard spot.
By virtue of Wednesday's win, in which Keston Hiura smoked a home run and the Brewers handed Cardinals starter Jack Flaherty his first loss since July 7, Milwaukee were able to make up some ground in the division and kept pace in the wildcard race, as Chicago also won on Wednesday.
Milwaukee scored a run in three of the first four innings and used a nine-strikeout performance from Jordan Lyles to earn the victory.
Milwaukee have three games left against the Cardinals and seven against the Cubs, so absolutely nothing is decided in this division.
Philadelphia Phillies second baseman Cesar Hernandez went three for five with a double, three RBIs and two runs scored in a 12-3 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Cincinnati Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani tossed seven scoreless innings in a 5-0 win over the Miami Marlins.
Jason Kipnis went two for four with two home runs in the Cleveland Indians' 4-2 win over the Detroit Tigers.
Noah Syndergaard gave up 10 runs (nine earned) in three innings in the New York Mets' 10-7 loss to the Cubs.
