Series Preview: Brewers (76-55) @ Cardinals (73-59)

The Crew heads to the road again, starting with their last two games against the Cards. The Brewers lead the Redbirds by 3½ games in the NL Wild Card chase.
Probable Pitchers:
Tuesday, August 26, 7:15 p.m. CT: RHP Ben Sheets (11-7, 3.16) vs. RHP Todd Wellemeyer (11-4, 3.79)
Wednesday, August 27, 7:15 p.m. CT: LHP Manny Parra (10-6, 4.10) vs. RHP Adam Wainwright (7-3, 3.04)
Things to look for:
1. A sweep by the Brewers, and they hold a 5½ lead over the Cards in the Wild Card race; getting swept cuts their lead to just 1½ games.
2. Can a somewhat cool Sheets find a way to beat Wellemeyer, who has gotten hot since the All-Star break?
