Milwaukee continues to scratch and claw their way toward the .500 mark and will try to take another step in the right direction when they visit St. Louis on Friday.
The Cardinals have flirted with the .500 mark and have their sights set on trying to trim into the Cubs division lead.
The Brewers expectations weren’t very high coming into this season. While the early season results haven’t been overwhelming, Milwaukee still can say they are in a race as they are within striking distance within the NL Wild Card.
The Brewers sit 16.5 back in the division, but just 5.5 back of the Wild Card. However, with 6 teams in front of them, the task is tall to jump spots.
This could lead to the Brewers being sellers at the deadline. With that, the likes of Ryan Braun and Jonathan Lucroy could be on the move and auditioning for teams in the coming weeks. Braun continues to be a spark plug for this offense, hitting .325 in the middle of the order.
Matt Garza toes the rubber here for Milwaukee, making just his 4th start of the season. Garza has gone back to back starts with 6.0 innings, but comes in off a win against the Nationals.
Garza’s name hasn’t came up much, but these coming starts will be watched closely by contenders who are looking to add starting pitching depth.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals still consider themselves a threat in the NL Central, but have a mountain of work to do.
They sit in 2nd place, 11.0 games back of the Cubs despite sitting 3 games over the break-even mark.
However, the Wild Card race is theirs for the taking. St. Louis sits just 0.5 game back, tied with the Mets for 3rd place.
The Cardinals rank toward the top in both pitching and hitting categories, as they average well above 5 runs per game while owning a team ERA of just 3.97.
The Cardinals will send out Jamie Garcia. He continues to have a back and forth season, sitting with a record of 5-6, with an ERA of 4.09.
Garcia allowed 2 runs in 5.0 innings of work, but failed to get any offensive support in a 3-1 loss to the Brewers back on 6/1.
