The Pittsburgh Pirates playoff push is over after a dismal week has a .500 season in jeopardy.

Pitt starter Ivan Nova was charged with five runs on five hits and a pair of free passes including two long balls to absorb the loss. The Pirates offense was held to five hits and zero walks with David Frees going 2-3 with a double and single.

The Milwaukee Brewers are trying to chase down the Chicago Cubs for the lead in the National League Central. The Brewers have been doing their part with three straight road wins versus the Chicago Cubs after Sunday afternoon’s 3-1 win at Wrigley Field.

Milwaukee did their damage on seven hits and four bases on balls with Travis Shaw slamming a two run homer while Orlando Arcia singled in a run.

Woodruff comes off a 2-1 loss versus the Washington Nationals with a run scoring on just two hits and a BB in seven frames.
