Brewers clinch playoff spot for 4th consecutive year

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58/AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers clinched a spot in the playoffs after a 6-4 win over the Chicago Cubs Saturday night, Sept. 18. 

Manny Piña homered twice, Eduardo Escobar and Jace Peterson also connected.

The Brewers won for the seventh time in nine games to ensure themselves at least a wild card after San Diego and Cincinnati lost earlier in the day. Milwaukee’s magic number to lock up the NL Central title is three over St. Louis.

NL Cy Young Award contender Corbin Burnes was shaky by his standards in his first start since throwing eight innings in a combined no-hitter a week ago.
