The Brewers Magic Number to clinch a spot in the playoffs now sits at four.
Tonight, they head to St. Louis for a three-game set against the Cardinals.
“You sort of had this series circled on the schedule for awhile, haven’t we,” Journal Sentinel Brewers beat writer Tom Haudricourt tells WTMJ.
“You just figured it was coming down to this. Exciting last week. This is what you want. Games that are meaningful.”
Haudricourt says the last time games meant this much was in 2008.
“Because in 2011, they cruise-controlled to the division. They didn’t have any big series the last week of the season.”
