Brewers Top Nationals, Move Closer In Wild Card Race

The Milwaukee Brewers move closer to a possible Wild Card spot after beating the Washington Nationals 6-3 at Miller Park Thursday night. Zach Davies struck out four in seven innings to get his 16th win and tie former Brewer Zack Greinke of Arizona for the most wins in the Majors, and Corey Knebel picked up his 31st save. Jesus Aguilar put the Crew in front for good with a two run single in the third inning, and Jonathan Villar went three for five with a two run homer. Trea Turner fell a homer short of the cycle for Washington, which still leads the National League East by 15 games while the Brewers moved to within two and a half of idle Colorado for the final N-L Wild Card spot and stayed three and a half behind first place Chicago in the N-L Central. Also, manager Craig Counsell said the struggling Matt Garza would not make his normal start on Sunday, and he did not announce a replacement.
