Cardinals, Brewers play twin bill in tight NL playoff picture

The National League playoff race will intensify when the St. Louis Cardinals face the Milwaukee Brewers in a doubleheader Friday in St. Louis.

The Cardinals (28-26) are in second place in the NL Central, 2 1/2 games behind the Chicago Cubs. The Brewers (27-29) are 4 1/2 games off the division pace and one game out of the NL's second wild-card slot.

The Brewers will serve as the home team in the first game, which is making up a game that was lost during the Cardinals' run of postponements during their COVID-19 hiatus.
