The Milwaukee Brewers’ season ended with a 4-3 loss to the Washington Nationals in the National League Wild Card play-in game last night. Milwaukee took a quick lead, with a two-run Yasmani Grandal homer in the first inning, and a solo shot by Eric Thames in the second. They held the lead until the eighth inning, when Juan Soto’s bases-loaded single to right field off Josh Hader was misplayed by Trent Grisham. The error allowed three runs to score, including the game-winner.
