MILWAUKEE (AP) — Christian Yelich beat out a throw at first to narrowly avoid a double play that allowed the winning run to score in the ninth.Game over ttp://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-brad-boxberger-jersey , but the jubilant Yelich kept going — and turned across the outfield — before the rest of the happy Milwaukee Brewers finally caught up with him in short left.Yelich’s fielder’s choice with the bases loaded in the ninth allowed Keon Broxton to score from third, and the Brewers opened an important three-game series with the Chicago Cubs with a 4-3 win Monday.The .315 hitter hit a 1-2 fastball from Jesse Chavez at diving third baseman Kris Bryant, who touched third for the second out of the ninth before firing to first. The speedy Yelich reached safely just before the throw landed in the glove of the outstretched Anthony Rizzo.“It’s fun,” manager Craig Counsell said. “They might not be saying the same thing but it was a game with some great plays and a lot of individual efforts.”The second-place Brewers, looking to make the playoffs for the first time since 2011, pulled within four games of the NL Central-leading Cubs.The Brewers took advantage of wildness by Cubs reliever Steve Cishek (4-3), who loaded the bases with a walk, passed ball and two hit batters. It set up the game-winning fielder’s choice by Yelich, the reigning National League Player of the Week.“I saw him catch it and I saw him go to third, so I just started busting it, man,” Yelich said.And they got to the Cubs’ bullpen for a second straight inning.Milwaukee tied the score 3-3 after pinch-hitter Mike Moustakas drew a four-pitch walk with two outs in the eighth from Carl Edwards Jr. during an at-bat in which home-plate umpire Gabe Morales ejected two Cubs. Manager Joe Maddon got tossed after the count went to 2-0; Edwards got the boot during a pitching change in which he was being lifted anyway from the game.“It’s borderline. Listen, I’m defending my player there. If I’m wrong, I’m wrong as a manager, but you’ve got to defend your player right there,” Maddon said.Anthony Rizzo hit a two-out, two-run homer off tough left-hander Josh Hader in the eighth.Jeremy Jeffress (8-1) got the win after pitching a scoreless top of the ninth.FIRST OR HOME?Maddon said he was fine with Bryant’s decision to throw to first to try to get Yelich instead of home to get the equally speedy Broxton.“But it shouldn’t even get to that point. Listen, we played a wonderful game. We walked too many people,” Maddon said.Broxton said he was ready for a play at the plate, even though Bryant had to dive to make the initial stop.“I guess he thought he had a better chance to turn a double play,” Broxton said. “But, yeah I’m definitely surprised. I would think he would want to go home with it and try to save the game.”YELICH’S RUNThe outfielder extended his on-base streak to 20 games, the longest active streak in the National League.RIZZO RULESRizzo finished 3 of 4, including his 24th homer of the year. It was also the first homer by a left-handed hitter off of Hader.“What is really? That’s cool. He’s tough, he is the best, one of the best,” Rizzo said.TRAINER’S ROOMCubs: SS Addison Russell went 1 for 3 in making his first start since being activated off the disabled list on Saturday for injuries to his left middle finger and right shoulder. Russell left the game as part of a double switch in the seventh. While Russell did not have a rehab assignment the minors, Maddon said he was working him in as if he were on a rehab assignment. The shortstop entered the previous two games as a pinch-hitter and defensive replacement.Brewers: The team is practically back to full strength for the first time in a while with starter Zach Davies back. He allowed four hits and a run in five strong innings, striking out seven in his first start since late May after being sidelined with right rotator cuff inflammation.UP NEXTCubs: LHP Mike Montgomery (4-4) is 1-6 with a 5.24 ERA in 14 career appearances against Milwaukee, including five starts.Brewers: Opponents are batting just .234 off LHP Wade Miley (2-2), who is 4-2 with a 4.47 ERA in seven career starts against the Cubs. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — CC Sabathia protected his teammates, not his wallet.The 38-year-old left-hander got his 246th win and moved the New York Yankees closer to hosting next week’s AL wild-card game but may have cost himself a $500,000 bonus.Sabathia was ejected from Thursday’s 12-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays in the sixth inning for hitting Jesus Sucre on a leg in retaliation for Tampa Bay reliever Andrew Kittredge throwing a pitch behind Austin Romine.Making his final regular-season start, Sabathia had thrown 55 pitches over five innings to raise his season innings total to 153 — two shy of a $500,000 performance bonus in his contract.“I don’t really make decisions based on money, I guess Daniel Descalso Jersey ,” Sabathia said. “I just felt like it was the right thing to do.”Yankees manager Aaron Boone didn’t rule out Sabathia (9-7) getting into a game this weekend in Boston.“That’s definitely above my pay grade,” Boone said when asked whether New York should still pay the bonus.New York (98-61) ensured its winningest season since going 103-59 en route to the 2009 World Series title and moved two games ahead of Oakland (96-63) for hosting the Oct. 3 wild-card game. The Yankees hold the tiebreaker, which means one more Yankees win or Athletics loss ensures the winner-take-all game would be in the Bronx. The wild-card winner advances to a Division Series against AL East champion Boston.“We know what’s at stake, and we took a good step toward it,” Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton said after homering twice to raise his season total to 37.Miguel Andujar and Luke Voit also went deep for the Yankees. New York’s 260 homers tied the 2005 Texas Rangers for the second-most in major league history, four behind the 1997 Seattle Mariners.With New York ahead 7-0, Sabathia hit Jake Bauers on the knuckles of his right hand with an 88 mph two-seam fastball with two outs in the fifth.Kittredge threw a 93 mph fastball behind Romine’s neck with his initial pitch in the sixth, and plate umpire Vic Carapazza issued a warning to both benches.“I think there’s no question there was intent. You throw one over the head, I hated it,” Boone said.Sabathia started out of the Yankees dugout and had to be intercepted by Boone.“I think we all took exception to that, I think, anytime you feel a player’s safety is in jeopardy,” Sabathia said.Romine turned to the catcher and asked Sucre, “Why?”“You can’t throw balls at people’s head, plain and simple,” Romine said.After New York opened an 11-0 lead, Sabathia hit Sucre the lower left leg with a 93 cutter on his first pitch in the bottom half, causing Carapazza to eject the pitcher and Boone.Sucre declined to comment, while Kittredge said it’s “just baseball.”“Obviously that was a high-and-tight pitch,” Kittredge said. “That’s not a comfortable feeling for him. It is what it is, I guess.”Sabathia stared and pointed toward the Tampa Bay bench while walking to the Yankees dugout after being tossed. Relievers in both bullpens stood up but the other players remained in the dugouts.“You don’t throw at someone’s head. He did what he felt he needed to do,” Stanton said of Sabathia.Sabathia, likely the Yankees’ fourth starter during the postseason, allowed one hit, lowered his season ERA to 3.65 and struck out five to increase his career total to 2,986. He has a $10 million base salary in his one-year contract.Luis Cessa and Jonathan Loaisiga completed a two-hitter, giving New York its third straight series win. Cessa gave up C.J Cron’s homer in the seventh.Andujar hit a three-run homer during a four-run first off Jaime Schultz (2-2). Aaron Judge had a sacrifice fly and Voit hit an RBI double in a three-run fourth.New York’s four-run sixth included back-to-back solo homers by Voit and Stanton, who had his 32nd multihomer game.Tampa Bay’s Tommy Pham walked in the ninth to extend his on-base streak to 29 games, the longest active run in the AL.TRAINER’S ROOMYankees: CF Aaron Hicks (left hamstring) should start Friday night and SS Didi Gregorius (right wrist) also could also return during the final regular-season series. Both ran the bases and took batting practice, while Gregorius took grounders. “Looking good for both of them,” Boone said. … Neil Walker started at third base, one day after getting hit by a pitch on the left shin.Rays: 3B Matt Duffy (right quadriceps) will have his status evaluated Friday.UP NEXTYankees: LHP J.A. Happ (16-6, including 6-0 with Yankees) is scheduled to start Friday night at Boston, which lines him up to pitch against Oakland on regular rest. RHP Luis Severino starts Sunday, which lines him up for a Division Series opener at Fenway Park on Oct. 5. RHP Rick Porcello (17-7) starts Friday for the Red Sox.Rays: RHP Tyler Glasnow (2-7) starts Friday for the Rays and LHP Thomas Pannone (4-1) for Toronto.
