WASHINGTON, DC (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers are again tied for first in the National League Central Division. The Crew, for a time on Sunday, dropped to second place for the first time since April 5th after losing at Washington 5-4. Saint Louis held the division lead for a few hours, before losing Sunday night to the L-A Dodgers 4-3. That means the Brewers and Cards are tied again, with third-place Pittsburgh only a game-and-a-half back, and fourth-place Cincinnati two-and-a-half out. The Reds open a three-game series at Milwaukee tonight, and a sweep would move Cincy ahead of the Brewers. The Crew lost 2 of 3 in its first series since the All-Star break. Manager Ron Roenicke blamed Sunday's loss on two key mistakes in the ninth inning. Rickie Weeks was thrown out at third base on a double-steal attempt, blowing a chance to move ahead after Weeks had singled home a run to tie the game at four. In the bottom of the ninth, Brewers' left fielder Khris Davis overthrew his cut-off man, which allowed the winning run to score on a walk-off double from Jayson Werth. Rob Wooten took the loss in relief. He's 1-4. Rafael Soriano got the win, despite giving up the game-tying run in the ninth. He's 2-0. Weeks, Davis, Jonathan Lucroy, and Carlos Gomez all drove home runs for Milwaukee, which has lost 13 of its last 16 games. Right-hander Wily Peralta will start tonight against Cincinnati right-hander Mat Latos. Pregame coverage on WHBL begins at 6:35.
