It’s bad that Hanley Ramirez has broken ribs. But it could be worse. And, depending on his health and the health of Nick Punto, it may actually get worse:

 

Lots of teams have come back from an 0-2 deficit. Lots of teams have survived losing key parts of their offense. But if the Dodgers find themselves in a situation where they have Michael Young playing shortstop for anything approaching an extended period of time, hoo boy.

Christian Yelich homers to bring the National League one run closer in the eighth

We entered the bottom of the eighth with the Americans leading the Nationals 5-2, and Charlie Morton on the hill. He got Joe Votto to ground out to second but he wasn’t so lucky when the Brewers’ Christian Yelich came to the plate: Yelich homered, again to left field, to bring the National League one run closer, 5-3.

After that Morton got both Charlie Blackmon and Lorenzo Cain to strike out, ending the inning.

We head to the top of the ninth, the American League still in the lead.
