The Milwakee Brewers took a combined perfect game into the seventh inning while beating the Pittsburgh Pirates, 4-3, to match Washington atop the NL wild-card standings and send the Bucs to their ninth straight loss.
The Nationals lost 5-3 to Miami earlier Sunday, locking them into a tie with the Brewers for the top wild card. Milwaukee owns the tiebreaker over Washington after winning their season series and would host the wild-card game if they finish the season with the same record. Washington has played two fewer games and technically leads Milwaukee by percentage points.
The Pirates play the Chicago Cubs tomorrow at 7:05
