Washington lost a wild one on Saturday against the Brewers, 15–14 in 14 innings.
Sean Doolittle came on with a three-run lead in the ninth but he could only get one out before blowing the lead and getting the hook.
But Josh Hader couldn’t protect a one-run lead of his own in the bottom of the inning and the game went to extras where it became a battle of the Guerras. Junior (Milwaukee) out-dueled Javy (Washington) and the Brewers snapped Washington’s five-game winning streak.
A week ago, it was the Mets; now it’s the Phillies making a run at Washington in the division. Philadelphia is just a game-and-a-half back after winning again on Saturday.
Pittsburgh beat Chicago, 3–2, on Friday but couldn’t follow it up with another win on Saturday, despite Steven Brault going seven innings and setting a new career-high with eight strikeouts.
Brault had it going on but the Pirates simply couldn’t break through against Jon Lester, who twice escaped the bases-loaded with nobody out.
Brault had frozen Kris Bryant down-and-in twice already and tried to go in there again in the third at-bat. He missed just a little too much over the plate and KB lost one to left to break the 0–0 tie.
