In which the Brewers and Reds somehow help the Pirates cut the NL Central lead to 2 1/2

Remember all of those times that I’ve declared the NL Central race over and attempted to prepare for the Wild Card Game? The Reds beat the Cardinals twice yesterday (once in a suspended game) and the Pirates beat the Brewers 10-2 behind an early rally in the rain and a late grand slam from Mike Morse, and now the Bucs are within 2 1/2 of first place with 21 games to go in the 2015...

Pirates 13, Dodgers 6: Tire Fire

Tonight’s game is/was important, and we’ll get to that in a second (even if you don’t want to), but first… In the top of the fifth inning, Howie Kendrick led off with an infield single, just beating out a throw after Mike Morse was slow to field his grounder. Passing the bag, Kendrick hopped and grabbed his hamstring. He didn’t even try to stay in the game, leaving with...
