Record: 79-75, 4.5 games behind in wild card
Remaining schedule: Reds (2), Astros (3), Padres (3)
The Brewers own September's best record at 16-7 while the Cardinals have sat around .500. Their closer, John Axford, has been inconsistent (4.66 ERA), but three starters have made up for it with sub-3.60 ERA's: Yovani Gallardo, Marco Estrada and Mike Fiers. Reigning MVP Ryan Braun is also having another standout season (.317, 40 HR, 108 RBI).
Prediction: Win second wild card
