St. Louis Cardinals
The Brewers will host the National League wild card game, which is scheduled to be played Tuesday night. If the Cardinals are fortunate enough to be there, Miles Mikolas won’t be the starting pitcher.
That’s because the Cardinals need to win this weekend. They must win and the Dodgers must lose, if St. Louis is to get into the postseason.
The Cardinals are a game back of the Dodgers, who are a game back of the Rockies in the NL West. St. Louis has the all-important tie-break, however, because they won the seventh game between the two in the middle of this month behind six shutout innings from Adam Wainwright.
The Dodgers are in San Francisco; the Rockies are hosting Washington. The Cardinals are in must-win mode all weekend, unless they clinch a spot in this game, which is possible.
It could be problematic that the Brewers are still pushing Chicago for the NL Central, up to now. Milwaukee lost a bunch of games to the Cubs early in the year, so, despite their best efforts, they don’t have the tie-breaker.
Going into Friday’s games, the Crew is a game behind Chicago, so the Central could be wrapped up as early as Friday night. It isn’t likely, though, which means the Cubs are likely going to have to win this game.
Meanwhile, Addison Russell is still on administrative leave as MLB looks into his domestic abuse case. You have to think they want to resolve things before the playoffs but it just may not be possible. Bad timing, I guess.
