Just a little note to brighten your day: Arizona beat Milwaukee 7-3 tonight, fittingly enough behind the pitching of Zach Duke.
That means that the Pittsburgh Pirates are now in sole possession of second place in the Central Division, 1/2 game ahead of the Brew Crew and 2-1/2 games up on the fourth-place Reds.
The Bucs are 1-1/2 games behind the Cardinals, who won big tonight, and just one back in the loss column. Pittsburgh in a pennant race in July? Who'd thunk it?
