Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson out for rest of season

Three times in the span of four innings the Cubs had men on first and third but couldn't get a runner to cross home plate. Perhaps this is just about everything evening out, which means the race could go down to the wire.

"It's something we're going to discuss", said manager Craig Counsellsaid. Given the injuries to the Milwaukee Brewers starting pitchers, it's time to consider taking that step towards the middle. They have to decide whether to pinch hit or not.

Remember the controversy surrounding this game being moved to a nighttime start? "There are a couple of other factors that are in play".

As the fans reveled, the 85-year-old former coach and athletic director at UGA, more than three decades removed from winning a national championship, wind-milled his right arm in an attempt to shake the cobwebs from it.

If you're at Wrigley Field on Friday night and you look to the west shortly after first pitch, you'll see the sun setting. We've got to make sure they're good for four more starts, and possibly more. Overall, the Cubs are 34-18 since the All-Star break, tied with Washington for the second-best record in MLB over that span (Cleveland: 37-16).

As a result, the Cubs have a two-game division lead over both the Brewers and Cardinals with 19 games left to go in the season. It's shocking, certainly. You think you've dodged a bullet (with the early prognosis). I want you to know that.

Zobrist isn't having the same year he had in his debut season for the Cubs. That's the longest streak for any pitcher since Arizona's Wade Miley had seven in a row from May 27-July 1, 2014.

They better be. The season is coming to a head. "Nothing happened. Baseball happened".

TRAINER'S ROOM: Cubs: C Willson Contreras (strained right hamstring) was scheduled to rejoin the team in Chicago after serving as the designated hitter for Class A Myrtle Beach on Friday.

The Pirates (67-77) are on the outside looking in at the postseason race.

"Everybody's riding it out right now", he said.

Plus, there are a number of pitchers who can actually hold their own at the plate.

"Our home is shuttered up", Sedar said. Perhaps this was an omen, but it all started back on Opening Day.

Sundays, except for the occasional ESPN telecast, are traditionally day games around baseball, as are Saturdays at Wrigley Field. It was his 14th homer of the season. So with that said, I'll take a shot with the Brewers behind a strong outing from Davies here. "That's probably the biggest positive tonight". Not quite a strike by the purest definition, but considering the source, the pro was impressed.
