The Milwaukee Brewers got a huge come from behind win on Wednesday as they defeated the Cincinnati Reds 4-3, getting two runs in the eighth inning. Manager Ned Yost has not been one to panic even though his team just completed a 3-7 homestand. "I've got my own style and the way that I like to do things," said Yost, "I think everybody wants to vent and scream and yell, but I just think that it's more productive for me and my players if we take a calm approach.” The Brewers are still ahead of the Phillies, Cardinals and the hard charging Houston Astros in the Wild Card race. They send their top pitcher, Ben Sheets on Thursday at Philadelphia.

The Phillies will turn to Jamie Moyer on Thursday. He will be working on three days of rest. "I've done it," said Moyer, "I don't think it's that big of an issue. It's my responsibility. I'm trying to do my job to the best that I can. If it's on short rest, so be it. Sometimes you can be pretty sharp with an extra day or two extra days or you could be too strong." Moyer has been the most consistent pitcher for the Phillies, leading the team in wins with 13. "He's in tremendous shape, and he's prepared," Philadelphia manager Jerry Manuel said.
