Brewers - Three more against the Cubs in Milwaukee, three at home against the Reds and the three in St. Louis.
The Rockies' short slump combined with the improved play of other teams has their lead for the second Wild Card spot at just a single game over the Milwaukee Brewers and 1.5 games over the aforementioned Cardinals.
"Again, as an athlete, when you're going through difficulties outside of your occupation, sometimes it's the best place to be for those couple hours".
Meanwhile, the Arizona Diamondbacks have a five and a half game lead over the Colorado Rockies in the wild card race, putting them within reach of clinching home-field advantage in the National League wild card game.

But several Cubs have been distracted during this nightmare hurricane season, seeing the haunting images on TV and thinking about more than magic numbers. Prized prospect Victor Robles lined a two-run triple in the fifth inning that put Washington ahead 6-1. "Didn't you notice we made the playoffs last year" when they have a chance to improve this winter.
"It's two tough games", Brewers manager Craig Counsell said.
Davis did not pitch in Friday, but he did enter a second inning of work for the second time in three days.
The Brewers had rallied from a 2-0 deficit. With two outs, pinch hitters Keon Broxton and Jesus Aguilar drew back-to-back walks off Cubs relievers Brian Duensing and Pedro Strop, respectively. They want to win them, too.
The Brewers went with Jacob Barnes and Jeffress to protect the lead.
Kyle Hendricks started for the Cubs and worked six innings of eight-hit, one-run ball as he turned in his eighth quality start in a row.
Zobrist praised the competitive nature of both teams. Thames' single to right scored Santana and Manny Pina followed with a single off reliever Justin Wilson, the Cubs' fifth pitcher of the game. He termed the pitch to Shaw a "hanging curveball".
