Brewers drop game before deadline

It is anybody's guess what the Milwaukee Brewers' line-up could look like when they take the field again for their final game against the Pittsburgh Pirates Monday night at 6:40 p.m. at Miller Park.


Keston Hiura's RBI single in the third inning was all the Brewers could muster in its 5-1 loss Sunday afternoon. It briefly tied the game at 1-1 after the Pirates got on the board in the second inning on a Gregory Polanco home run. Josh Bell put the Pirates ahead for good in the fourth inning with a two-run homer while Kevin Newman (fifth inning) and Adam Frazier (seventh inning) added insurance runs with RBI singles.


The decision to buy or sell will come before the MLB trade deadline is 3 p.m. The Brewers are currently three games under .500 in a shortened, pandemic-threatened season. They are also just a game outside of a playoff spot with the top two teams in each division making the playoffs and the Brewers have been one of baseball's best September teams the last two seasons.
