I was out-of-town this weekend, and thus unable to stay up-to-date on my Brewers "countdown to the Playoffs" theme. As it turns out, though, in my absence, they managed to sweep a three-game series from the Cincinnati Reds. Meanwhile, the St. Louis Cardinals lost one of their three games against the Philadelphia Phillies, and the Brewers gained one more game in their NL Central Division lead.
Here's where things stand as of this morning:National League Central Division:Team Name ............... W - L ..... GB

The Brewers "Magic Number" is: -- 4The magic number represents the combination of wins by the leading team and losses by the second-place team that would clinch the division title.
