Brewers 7, Marlins 1.
Cardinals 8, Cubs 7.
The Brewers’ magic number is 5. Any combination of Brewer wins and Cub losses adding up to that number will ensure that the Brewers end the season with a better record than the Cubs.
Both teams have 7 games remaining.
Today was also probably the final home game as a Brewer for both Prince Fielder and Trevor Hoffman. Fielder is expected to be traded during the offseason. Hoffman will likely sign elsewhere if he doesn’t retire. This blog will miss them both.
