September is quickly coming down to its last days, as is the MLB season, and time right now is the Milwaukee Brewers biggest enemy. The Brewers who were in first place in the weak National League Central almost all season long now find themselves 2.5 games behind Division leading Chicago Cubs after falling to the Atlanta Braves Saturday 4-3. Milwaukee actually came from behind in this game tying the game at 2-2 in the sixth. It would stay that way until the top of the tenth when Milwaukee's Corey Hart hit a homer giving the Brewers a 3-2 lead. But Milwaukee closer Francisco Cordero blew his 7th save of the year allowing a long ball to Braves pinch-hitter Scott Thorman to tie the game again. The Braves won the game in the 11th off reliever Seth McClung. Milwaukee's record is now at 79-75, falling further behind Chicago who won Saturday beating up the Pittsburgh Pirates 9-5. Milwaukee, has no shot at the Wild Card in the National League, they trail the current Wild Card leader the San Diego Padres by 6.5 games.
