Brewers host

The Milwaukee Brewers welcome the St. Louis Cardinals to Miller Park tonight for the home opener (Friday). There will be no fans celebrating in the stadium on Opening Day due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Milwaukee took two of three in Pittsburgh to improve to 3-and-3 while the 2-and-3 Cardinals were swept by the Twins in two games at Target Field. Brett Anderson makes his first start of the shortened season after a stint on the disabled list with a blister on his hand. Jack Flaherty takes the mound for St. Louis. The right-hander beat the Pirates in the season opener at Busch Stadium last Friday. The N-L Central rivals play a three-game series this weekend.
