Redbird Randoms ... Bring on the Brewers

The Cards are coming off a four-game sweep of the San Diego Padres, but the Brewers are coming to St. Louis to start another four-game series. This latter half of the current homestand can affect things such as:
  • the Cards' standing in the NL Central, where the Brewers are currently one game behind the Cards in third place.
  • the Cards' chase of the first place Cubs, to which the Cards are two games behind.
  • the momentum of the Cards as they head into their next road trip to New York to face the Mets.
On-deck: The first game of the series with the Milwaukee Brewers is at Busch Stadium in St. Louis at 6:05 p.m., a game moved up about an hour due to ESPN taking over the coverage.

Probables: MIL-Seth McClung (5-5, 4.16) vs. STL-Joel Pineiro (3-4, 4.52).
