The Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals will resume their battle for National League Central superiority Thursday night while opening a four-game series.
The teams split a four-game series in Milwaukee earlier this season. The rivalry shifts to Busch Stadium in St. Louis as the division-leading Brewers arrive with a 3 1/2 -game lead over the second-place Cardinals.
St. Louis had their four-game winning streak snapped Tuesday night with an 8-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. Milwaukee won two of three games in San Diego to kick off an 11-game road trip, despite missing key players.
