Brewers continue postseason push as they face Pirates

The Milwaukee Brewers are hot at the right time, and with eight games left to play in the season, are in the driver's seat for a wild-card spot with an eye on a possible National League Central title.

Milwaukee (84-70) has won 13 of its last 15 games to grab sole possession of the NL's second wild card. The Brewers have won six of seven games, are 15-4 in September and are 8-2 since losing reigning MVP Christian Yelich to season-ending knee surgery.

Friday night's 10-1 win over the struggling Pirates got manager Craig Counsell his 400th regular-season win. And veteran slugger Ryan Braun joined Brewers legends Robin Yount and Paul Molitor as only players in franchise history with 400 doubles.
