A tough match-up as the Brewers go for a sixth consecutive series win

Ouch.
Ouch.
Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Alex Reyes returns from Tommy John surgery to the Cardinals to give them a possible ace in their attempt to make this season's post-season. The Cardinals already boast one of the best rotations in baseball, so this is a big addition. Reyes was very effective at three levels in the minors this season, allowing only seven hits and seven walks in 23 innings with no runs and 44 strikeouts. Yowsers.

Junior Guerra goes for the Brewers, with a 3-3 record and 2.98 ERA. A Brewers' win will most likely require Juni G to be at his best, and it would give Milwaukee its sixth straight series win.

    Three or more. Matheny will get him out of there before things get too bad, but the Brewers will hit him.
