Cardinals aim to clinch postseason berth vs. Brewers

The St. Louis Cardinals will try to clinch their berth in the National League wild card game when they host the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.

The Cardinals (87-69) carry a team-record 16-game winning streak into their three-game series with the Brewers at Busch Stadium. They lead the Cincinnati Reds and Philadelphia Phillies by six games for the second wild-card slot and their magic number to reach postseason play is one.

On July 16 the Cardinals were just 44-47. Since then, they have gone 43-22.
