Brewers try to keep rolling against Pirates

The Milwaukee Brewers started to heat up at the end of August, and their temperature has continued to rise, despite losing their best player to a season-ending injury.

The Brewers will look to stay on a roll when they open a three-game series against the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night.

Milwaukee (83-70) has won 12 of 14 to take over sole possession of the second wild card from the National League. The Brewers are a game ahead of the Chicago Cubs, and a game behind the Washington Nationals, holders of the top wild card.
