The Brewers are in the hunt for a fifth-ever trip to the postseason as they prepare to host the Chicago Cubs in Milwaukee Thursday night.
In the tenth, Kris Bryant clubbed a two-run home run to deep right center field and Davis held off the Brewers in the bottom half to pull out the victory.

Thanks to a brilliant cross-court victor on her fifth match, Kerber celebrated her first Top 20 win and her third WTA semifinal of 2017.
The Brewers entered the game without all of its bullpen available. Jeffress gave up a leadoff single to Ian Hap and later and a two-out RBI single to Baez. He failed to retire a batter, giving up two runs on three hits and a walk. Brandon Woodruff (2-2, 3.28) goes for the Brewers. With two outs, pinch hitters Keon Broxton and Jesus Aguilar drew back-to-back walks off Cubs relievers Brian Duensing and Pedro Strop, respectively.
Brewers reliever Jacob Barnes worked out of a two-on, no-out jam in the top of the eighth, striking out Rizzo and inducing Willson Contreras to hit into an inning-ending double play ground ball to short. John Lackey (11-11, 4.62) pitches for the Cubs. Colorado is now rooting for the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds in hopes of increasing its lead over Milwaukee and St. Louis.
Davies, who beat the Cubs 3-1 September 10 at Chicago, allowed two runs and seven hits in seven innings.
