The Milwaukee Brewers both gained and lost ground in the playoff chase while they were idle on Monday. The Crew got a half game closer to the final National League Wild Card, and are now three games behind Colorado after the Rockies lost at home to Detroit 4-3. Former Brewer Jonathan Lucroy hit his first homer as a Rockie and went three for four. Meanwhile, Milwaukee dropped a half game in the N-L Central standings, now two and a half games behind first place Chicago after the Cubs beat Pittsburgh 6-1 with Mike Montgomery throwing seven scoreless innings in his longest start since June of 2015. Tonight (Tuesday), the Brewers open a home series against third place Saint Louis as Matt Garza starts for Milwaukee against the Cardinals’ Luke Weaver.
