The Cardinals and Brewers close out their three-game series this afternoon at Miller Park. St. Louis sends Joe Kelly to the mound looking to move to 2-and-0. Milwaukee counters with right-hander Wily Peralta. First pitch is set for 12:10.

Jhonny Peralta hit a two-run homer and Matt Holliday added a two-run shot as the Cardinals drubbed the Brewers 6-1 at Miller Park yesterday. Shelby Miller tossed six innings of one-run ball with seven K's to move to 1-and-2. The Birds have won four straight.
