Cardinals and Brewers face off in the first of the three game series tonight. The game tips off at 7:30 PM EST in Miller Park, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. FOX will be doing the TV coverage while the game can be watched online live on FuboTV.
The Brewers swept the Cardinals for a three game series last time out in Busch Stadium, St. Louis. But this there seems to be a ray of hope for the Cardinals as the Brewers have been struggling in the second half of the season, losing five of their last seven games while the Cardinals are on a three-series win streak.
The series is important for both the teams; the Cardinals need to grab some wins to maintain their spark in the division race. And for the battered Brewers, it will help them out to climb atop the division once again.
Date and Time: August 1st, 2017 7:30 PM EST
Venue: Miller Park, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

The Cardinals will send their ace Carlos Martinez in the series opener against the Milwaukee at Miller Park on Tuesday. Martinez is clearly not a good option as he has posted a 5.90 ERA through his last five starts. In his last outing, he gave up five runs on seven hits over six innings against the Rockies.
Hope a day’s rest would be enough for the Brewers to overcome their third straight series loss and will start anew when they take on the Cardinals, starting on Tuesday. Brewers’s best this season, Jimmy Nelson will take the ball in the first game. The right hander has posted 12 quality starts and will be making the 22nd start of the season. But taking account of the history of Nelson against St. Louis, things have been pretty rough. He is 0-8 with a 7.01 ERA in 11 career outings against them.
