THE BREWERS have little margin for error with a week and a half left in the regular season. On Sunday, a lot of hits kept them close in the playoff scramble. Jonathan Lucroy had a pair of RBI singles and visiting Milwaukee collected 15 hits to beat the Washington Nationals, 6-2. Rickie Weeks had three hits while Aramis Ramirez had two doubles for Milwaukee, which twice benefited from outfielders losing fly balls in the sun. The Brewers (79-73) remained 2 1/2 games behind St. Louis for the final NL wild-card berth.

BRYCE HARPER hit his third home run in two games, Jayson Werth homered for the first time since May, and Edwin Jackson struck out 10 Thursday night as the Washington Nationals padded their NL East lead with an 8-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals. The Nationals opened an 11-game homestand with an overwhelming performance against a wild-card contender that failed to score an earned run for the third straight game. Jackson (8-9) have up four hits over eight innings. The victory moved the Nationals 5 1/2 games ahead of idle Atlanta.

TYLER COLVIN stood in front of his locker wearing a Todd Helton T-shirt and cracked a big grin when he was given a choice: tying home run off R.A. Dickey or terrific play at first base. "I'd go with the game-saving play," Colvin said. Either way, Helton, the three-time Gold Glove first baseman on the disabled list since Aug. 6, would approve of Colvin's night that led the visiting Colorado Rockies to a 3-1 win over the New York Mets on Monday. Getting more playing time at first base because of Helton's hip surgery and the recently injured Michael Cuddyer, Colvin connected off Dickey in the fifth inning then made a diving grab with the bases loaded in the eighth to preserve the lead.

NYJER MORGAN scored on a fly ball by Ryan Braun in the 10th inning to give the Brewers a 3-2 victory over the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night, the second late-inning thriller in a row for Milwaukee. With the bases loaded and one out, Braun lofted a shallow fly ball to centerfield. Morgan took off for home despite a stop sign from third-base coach Ed Sedar and was called safe on a close play at the plate - although replays showed that he may have been tagged out before reaching the plate.

LOS ANGELES Dodgers owner Frank McCourt has announced an agreement to sell the bankrupt team for $2 billion to a group that includes former Lakers star Magic Johnson and former Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals president Stan Kasten.

MILWAUKEE - The biggest momentum swing for the Milwaukee Brewers involved no swing at all. Jonathan Lucroy - "Mr. Squeeze" to his teammates - drove in the go-ahead run with a bunt and the Brewers broke away from the Arizona Diamondbacks, 9-4, yesterday to take a 2-0 lead in their best-of-five National League Division Series. "It's a free RBI if you execute and I really work hard to get that down," Lucroy said. "A safety squeeze, all you've got to do is get it down to the right area.

MILWAUKEE - Jonathan Lucroy drove in the go-ahead run with a squeeze, and the Milwaukee Brewers showed they could bunt as well as bash, breaking away from the Arizona Diamondbacks, 9-4, Sunday to take a two-games-to-none lead in their NL division series. Ryan Braun hit a two-run homer, and fellow slugger Prince Fielder added an RBI single for Milwaukee. But the brawny Brewers, especially Lucroy, also excel at the little things. Lucroy's safety squeeze keyed a five-run sixth inning and came right after Diamondbacks reliever Brad Ziegler became angry about a balk call.

MILWAUKEE - Yovani Gallardo could barely see the return tosses from catcher Jonathan Lucroy, losing them in the bright light filtering through the windows at Miller Park. Imagine how the Diamondbacks felt. Gallardo emerged from the shadows, outpitching Arizona ace Ian Kennedy as the Milwaukee Brewers kept winning at home with a 4-1 victory in their NL division series opener on Saturday. "It was tough for me seeing the ball coming back, just having the sun there in the background.

MILWAUKEE - It was a scene that had not happened since the second month of the season: Vance Worley, surrounded by reporters, talking about a loss. The Phillies entered yesterday having won 14 straight games started by the rookie righthander. A 3-2 loss to the Brewers prevented Worley from tying the franchise record set by Steve Carlton in 1972. "I guess he was just that much better than me," Worley said with a rueful grin. Worley, of course, has a long way to go before he matches the overall accomplishments of a Hall of Fame lefty like Carlton.
