WATCH: Contreras throws out runner to end Brewers' playoff chances

by - Senior Editor -

Chicago Cubs catcher Willson Contreras fired a rocket to Addison Russell at second base in the 10th inning to get the baserunner for the second out in the inning on Friday night.

The review showed that the baserunner was out on the play as Russell held the tag on the baserunner as he slipped off the base.

The Cubs have won two straight close games against the Brewers and their magic number is down to only five.

However, the Brewers are now 5.5 games back in the division and their best hope to make the postseason is with a wild-card playoff berth but the Cubs effectively ended much of their postseason push with two straight clutch wins.
