A GOOD NIGHT FOR CHEESEHEADS.

The Milwaukee Brewers regained home-field advantage for the pennant series with a 4-0 win in Los Angeles.  Orlando Arcia continues to impress.  That final score is closer than it looks: for the third straight game, the tying run has been at bat during the final half-inning.  "[Closer Jeremy] Jeffress then somehow extricated himself from a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the ninth with consecutive strikeouts to give Milwaukee a 2-1 series lead."

Sometimes, the best coaching technique is to give a player that had a bad game a chance at redemption.

Later that evening, the Green Bay Packers rallied with three minutes remaining in the game to defeat the 'Niners in regulation.  "Through six games this has not looked like a good team. Not by any stretch."  But the 'Niners had to be careful about Aaron Rodgers getting a good long pass off when the Packer offense got the ball with three minutes to play.
The 49ers dialed back the pressure, and Rodgers connected on two big plays to Davante Adams (38 and 19 yards) and a huge third-and-2 back-shoulder throw to rookie Equanimeous St. Brown (19 yards). And with the 49ers driving for a possible game-winning field, safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix got home on a third-down blitz and pressured Beathard into his lone big mistake of the night, a downfield underthrow that Kevin King picked off.
Richard Sherman got flagged for defensive holding, and just over a minute is plenty of time to get into field goal range.

Sometimes, the best coaching technique is to give a player that had a bad game a chance at redemption.
