(BaseballStL) -- The Cardinals could eliminate the Brewers from the Wild Card race with a win tonight. In fact, a Cardinals win or a Brewers loss eliminates Milwaukee. The Brewers lost a heart breaker at home to Houston Friday night.
The Brew Crew had a big September and managed to claw their way back into the race. Milwaukee has made no bones about trying to replicate the historic comeback the Cardinals pulled off in 2011. The Brewers are not dead yet... but they are chasing not only the Cardinals but the Dodgers.
As for the Dodgers they are trying to pull off some late season magic. The Cards magic number is 3 so that means any combination of three Cardinal wins and Dodgers losses seals the deal for the Redbirds.
