The Milwaukee Brewers will turn to right-hander Adrian Houser as they try to clinch the NL Central title at home against the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday in the opener of the three-game series.

Houser (7-4, 4.35 ERA) will be opposed by left-hander Zack Thompson (5-7, 4.57 ERA) in a rematch of last Wednesday's starters in a game won by Milwaukee 8-2.

The Brewers lead the Chicago Cubs by six games with six to play. Milwaukee can clinch its fourth NL Central title, and first since 2021, with a victory or a Cubs loss. Chicago opens a three-game series against NL East champion Atlanta on Tuesday before closing the regular season with three games in Milwaukee.
