Still barely hanging on are the Milwaukee Brewers to a 1/2 game lead over Chicago. After last night's 8-0 loss and sweep by St. Louis, the Cardnials now pulled to within 2 1/2 games and are considered a legitimate contender.
The Brew Crew are 14-25 in their last 39 games. They lost for the eighth time in their last 10 games. They've even lost four straight at home.
