Milwaukee has a daunting task ahead of them (Atlanta next week, followed by a road trip to Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Washington after a 3-game stint with the Mets). They finish with the Astros and much-improved Padres.
That said, if they hold on in the 9th against St. Louis and can finish the sweep tomorrow, they'll be just four games behind St. Louis for the last wild card. With the Pirates collapsing and the Dodgers losing guys left and right, I wonder if the Brewers won't make things interesting this final month. The schedule is brutal, but sometimes these games can be taken for granted.
