All gloom since June for Brewers

Milwaukee was 51-33 through the end of June last season, the best record in the NL. But things went south for Ron Roenicke & Co. since then, with the Brewers going 38-65. The Rangers are the only MLB team with a worse record in that time.

Final: Yankees 8, Red Sox 5

New York got the ball to Andrew Miller, and though he was shaky, that was all she wrote in the end. Miller still hasn't given up an earned run in 10 saves this season, and the Yankees, who took an 8-0 run in the top of the 6th, held off the Red Sox. Box score
