Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Milwaukee Brewers – Game 128

To say that this series is meaningful is a ******* understatement.  Sadly, the past ten games have really put the Pirates in a very disagreeable position in regards to the division.  Six behind the Brewers and 4.5 behind the Cardinals.  What a pity, they were doing so well.
