Brewers 7, Diamondbacks 4

Alex Young finally had a poor game via giving up a grand slam. The Diamondbacks kept it tight before another bullpen loss. It is back to .500 for now and it remains unclear if the D-backs will be sellers at the end of the month. The standings still imply that it a wild card spot is in reach, but much of D-backs nation seems to be resigned to the fact that this is a .500 team.

He already has 28 home runs and keeps on hitting. Might need an outfielder if a trade for Dyson happens. Doubt his fielding is any better, but it might be time for a promotion at some point. Maybe some time in Reno would have been called for a few years ago.
