BLS Note: Extenuating circumstances means today will sadly be Juice-free. But fret not loyal Stewies! DB will return Friday morning with another set of fresh-squeezed summaries much better than this one.
With a 3-1 victory over the Crew on Wednesday, Pittsburgh put the finishing touches on their first team sweep since taking three from the Mets in early June. The Buccos also put the Brewers at their low water mark of the season — four games under .500 — and closed Milwaukee's lead in the season series to 6-5.
So much for having some whipping boys, huh? And here Milwaukee fans were thinking it was just my lack of objectivity talking when I declared their season over last week.
Elsewhere around MLB: Cliff Lee(notes) continued his bid to be crowned the new King of Prussia, the Cardinals at least made the Dodgers think about looking over their shoulders, the Rockies improved to 14 games over .500, another Twins comeback in the Big D receives big cheers in Boston, the Braves post a huge number at Citi Field, and last, and probably very least, the Royals lost another game that Zack Greinke(notes) started.
