What we learned: September 26, 2014

Yesterday's Results

Reds 5, Brewers 3

The collapse is officially complete. With the Brewers loss yesterday, they were officially eliminated from playoff contention. Yovani Gallardo only pitched into the sixth inning, allowing five runs on ten hits. Only three of those runs were earned, though, as the Brewers defense committed three errors in the game. The Brewers had their chances to score, with runners in scoring position in a few different innings. However, they only managed to put up three runs.
