3 games left: How the Milwaukee Brewers can win NL Central

There’s only three games left in the Major League Baseball regular season for the Milwaukee Brewers and the St. Louis Cardinals, and the NL Central is still up for grabs.

With a win Thursday against the Cincinnati Reds, the Brewers are now one game behind the St. Louis Cardinals in the division race.

What does this mean for Brewers fans? It means they have to do something they never wanted to do before and hope the Chicago Cubs can take a game or two from the Cardinals.

The Brewers will have a three-game series against the Colorado Rockies in Denver starting Friday.

They are .5 games ahead of the Washington Nationals in the NL Wildcard race. The wildcard team with the better record will host a one-game playoff.

If the Brewers and Nationals have the same record, Miller Park will host the playoff game because Milwaukee won more games against Washington this year.
