Brewers face key test -- Keeping playoff hopes alive without Yelich

Brewers face key test -- Keeping playoff hopes alive without Yelich

Terrible news from Miami, where the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Miami Marlins 4-3, but announced after the game that Christian Yelich will miss the rest of the season after breaking his kneecap on a foul ball in the first inning.

It's a devastating injury for the Brewers, who lose not just their best player, but a player who had a chance to win his second consecutive MVP Award, as Yelich's season ends with him batting .329/.429/.671 with 44 home runs and 30 stolen bases.

Cain (knee) and Ryan Braun (back) have been playing through injuries.

Last year, they won their final seven games and nine of their final 10 to force a tie with the Cubs for the NL Central title and then beat the Cubs in the tiebreaker game.
