A long rain delay did not dampen the Milwaukee Brewers’ hopes of catching the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central. Travis Shaw, Mike Moustakas and Erik Kratz homered during a six-run sixth inning, and the Brewers rallied for an 8-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night. Milwaukee trailed 3-1 in the top of the fifth inning when rain stopped play for two hours and 14 minutes.

If not for the pesky Pittsburgh Pirates, the Milwaukee Brewers might be leading the National League Central, or at least running neck-and-neck with the first-place Chicago Cubs. The Brewers (87-66) sit second, 2 1/2 games behind the Cubs, in the division and hold the top NL wildcard spot, three games ahead of St. Louis. Overall, Milwaukee has won two of its past three games.
