Brewers look to gain more ground in Pittsburgh

(TSX / STATS) -- PITTSBURGH -- The two teams the Milwaukee Brewers are chasing for a playoff spot -- the Chicago Cubs for the National League Central title and the Colorado Rockies for the second NL wild card -- were off Monday.

The Brewers (80-70) took full advantage by shutting out the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-0 in the opener of a three-game series at PNC Park. They are 3 1/2 games behind the Cubs, two games behind the Rockies.

Milwaukee won't have the schedule in its favor Tuesday with all teams playing, but it will take whatever gains it can get.
