Brewers win!

They take two out of three from the Cubbies and go up half a game on the Mets!

The Mets, whose game would be over by now except for a rain delay. How's that game going?

Whoa, they're down 4-2 in the 9th!

Hang on...

UPDATE: Mets lose! The Brewers are in the playoffs!

Um...when's the last time that happened? I remember they came pretty close in 1992.

(Note: Google says it was 1982. Twenty-six years. I remember staying up to watch Game 7 of the World Series that year - it was delayed part-way through due to rain.)

I was watching the end of the Mets game on Yahoo's Gamechannel. The last batter was some guy named Church, and I couldn't help wondering what it's like being up with two outs in the bottom of the 9th, and if you don't get on base, your season is over. The last at-bat of the season. That has to sting a little bit.
