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.
