Cards, Brewers making playoff push with 5-game series

The visiting Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals continue their battle for playoff berths when they open their five-game series Thursday.

The Cardinals (27-26) and Cincinnati Reds (29-28) are tied for second in the National League Central, both one game above .500. The Brewers (27-28) are one game back of them, tied with the Philadelphia Phillies (28-29) in the race for the second NL wild-card slot.

"We're going to have to be at least .500 to be in contention, I know that," Brewers manager Craig Counsell said after his team fell to the Reds 6-1 Wednesday night. "I think if you get over .500, then you're looking pretty good. It's as simple as that. I think it's pretty safe to say we have to win at least three and probably four (against the Cardinals) to assure getting in."
