Standings

The graphics next to each team are called “sparklines.” They depict each team’s performance over the last month. Each “up” bar is a victory and a “down” bar is a loss. There are horizontal lines for home games and gray bars represent games decided by two runs or less. “PWins” is short for Projected Wins, based on each team’s Run Differential, and is often a better measure of a team’s true strength.

Other team graphs and stats can be found on our Team Page.

Game of the Day

Rickie Weeks gave and took away yesterday as the Brewers beat the Reds, 6-5 in 13 innings. Weeks made a mental blunder in the top of the 13th when he allowed Juan Castro to score from second on a sacrifice bunt. But he redeemed himself with a bases-loaded single in the bottom of the 13th to plate the winning runs for the Brewers. It was the Brewers’ ninth walk-off victory of the season and 16th win in their last at-bat.

Adam Dunn had put the Reds ahead in the top of the tenth with a home run, but the Brewers’ Geoff Jenkins returned the favor in the bottom of the inning.
