The rally overshadowed another big night for the Brewers' offense. Milwaukee scored two in the first one a two-run homer by the Mayor of Ding Dong City and another in the second inning on a solo shot by Jett Bandy. CC Sabathia (2-0, 1.47) starts against rookie RHP Tyler Glasnow (0-1, 12.15). This season, the team is 13th in slugging, and has hit a league-worst nine home runs.
Wednesday however, it was with some ninth-inning magic. He threw 88 pitches (57 strikes) and appears ready to be activated from the 10-day DL. For Montgomery that's now seven walks allowed in 9⅔ innings this year, way too many.
Things didn't get off to a great start in Wednesday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers as the Brewers took a 3-0 in the first two innings. Chase Headley hit a two-run homer in the first inning and Aaron Hicks also went deep to give NY a season-high four home runs. Pittsburgh tagged him for three hits and four earned runs without recording a home run.
Rockies 4, Dodgers 3: Nolan Arenado homered twice and Trevor Story also went deep as Colorado held off Los Angeles. They're also 25-9 in their last 35 games coming off a loss, are 61-30 in their last 92 games overall, and are a ideal 4-0 in Lackey's last four starts against National League Central rivals.

The winning run for the Cubs came on a wild pitch in the seventh by Milwaukee newcomer Jared Hughes.
Toronto's Ezequiel Carrera belted a pinch-hit, two-run homer in the ninth off Matt Barnes to make it 8-7. Lackey barked at home plate umpire Carlos Torres in the third inning after an Eric Thames blast flew over the basket and bounced into the left-field bleachers, making it five games in a row with a home run for the slugger who reinvented himself in South Korea. All three Royals traveled to Chicago on Sunday after a 1-0 victory over the Los Angeles Angels. The home-run ball is something Feliz is susceptible to.
Orioles 2, Reds 0 • Ubaldo Jimenez pitched into the eighth inning, allowing only two hits, and was backed by RBIs from Jonathan Schoop and Manny Machado as Baltimore won on the road. Davis, who has replaced Chapman as the team's closer, has also looked good, allowing no runs during his first six appearances for the Cubs.
Fowler had three of the Cardinals' eight hits, including homers in the third and fifth off Gerrit Cole (1-2).
