The National League Central is still up for grabs after the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in 19 innings Tuesday night. As of Wednesday, the Brewers are 2.5 games behind the Cardinals.
Milwaukee will play five more games: two against the Reds and three at Colorado.
St. Louis will play four more games: one against the Diamondbacks and three against the Cubs.
