The Milwaukee Brewers lost their third straight game Sunday afternoon in another heartbreaker, a 4-3 loss to the Colorado Rockies.
The Brewers scored the first three runs of the game, the first two coming in the top of the first inning on a Yasmani Grandal two-run homer followed by a Hernan Perez solo shot in the sixth. The Rockies would tie the game thanks to single tallies in the seventh, eighth, and ninth innings. Both teams had their chances in the subsequent extra innings, but a wild pitch by Jake Faria brought home the Rockies' Sam Hilliard for the winning run.
The Brewers will still head east despite the Cardinals closing the book on their division hopes with a 9-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs. Instead of Atlanta, they head to Washington D.C. where they will face Max Scherzer and the Nationals in the winner-take-all Wild Card game. Brandon Woodruff will pitch for the Brewers on Tuesday beginning at 7:08 p.m.
