Huge win for the Brewers as Ryan Braun belts a go-ahead grand slam in the top of the ninth off Junior Fernandez with two outs and two strikes and Josh Hader holds on despite giving up a two-run homer to Tommy Edman in the bottom of the ninth. Braun is the first player this season to hit a go-ahead grand slam when his team was down to its final strike.

The Cubs have scored 46 runs against the Pirates in this three-game series -- the most for the Cubs in a three-game series in the modern era (since 1900). Previous mark was 44 against the Phillies, July 24-26, 1930. Hack Wilson set the record that year with 191 RBIs, but drove in just seven of the 44 runs.

Dellin Betances with his first major league action since the 2018 ALDS. Threw 8 pitches (7 for strikes) and struck out two batters (fast ball at 93-95 mph). Before the game, he addressed whether he could be an effective pitcher with his fast ball sitting between 92-95 mph: "I think a lot of guys have, I don't see why I can't. Breaking ball is good, so I just got to be able to change speeds. Make sure you keep the hitters off balance. That's the name of the game whether you throw 100 or mid 90s or low 90s. Obviously I know arm strength, I am still not where I want to be. Still better than what it was earlier in the season. I am happy with where I am at right now."
