That's all that the Brewers needed to keep within striking distance of the Cubs NL Central lead.

The 28-year-old injured his shoulder while sliding back to first base in Friday's 2-0 win over the Cubs, and while it's unclear if the issue will require surgery to fix, it will leave him sidelined until 2018 regardless. According to Baseball Reference, the Cubs have only been beaten that badly by the Brewers on three occasions, with their last loss of this magnitude against Milwaukee coming in 2010 when they were throttled 18-1 by the Brew Crew.

After Cubs starter Mike Montgomery (5-8) yielded a pair of walks and a single, Travis Shaw followed with a two-run double. With the Brewers leading 6-0, Anderson laid down an RBI sacrifice bunt before Perez capped the offensive explosion with a sacrifice fly.

Girona were accused of trying to "cook the books" over five loan players sent there by City this summer by the La Liga chief. City will not be investigated by Uefa - but Tebas had a dig at Pep Guardiola's side accusing them of cheating the system.

After the first two innings were scoreless, the Milwaukee Brewers erupted for an eight-run third inning. Just check out Saturday's game for evidence. Montgomery walked four and struck out two before Grimm entered. "We're getting hot at the right time". "Eventually we didn't get anybody hurt so that's probably the biggest positive tonight".

A's 11-11, Astros 1-4 • Normally reliable Houston reliever Chris Devenski allowed two runs in the seventh inning, including Chad Pinder's tiebreaking homer with two outs, and Houston was swept a doubleheader at Oakland. If the Brewers are to overcome that deficit and make their first postseason appearance since 2011, they'll have to do it behind a rotation led by 16-game victor winner Zach Davies, veteran Matt Garza and breakout pitcher Chase Anderson.

"Obviously, when you're pitching well, you have a good chance to win", Anderson said.
