Brewers fighting for playoff lives as Cards visit for two-game set

The Milwaukee Brewers will turn to right-hander Adrian Houser on Tuesday as they continue their wild-card chase against the visiting St. Louis Cardinals in the opener of a two-game series.

The Brewers, on the verge of missing the postseason for the first time since 2017, are 1 1/2 games behind Philadelphia for the final National League wild-card spot. Both Milwaukee and the Phillies were idle on Monday. Philadelphia holds the tiebreaker over Milwaukee.

Houser (6-9, 4.62 ERA) will be opposed by right-hander Miles Mikolas (11-13, 3.35 ERA) for the Cardinals, who lead the NL Central by 6 1/2 games over Milwaukee.
