After four games, we’re back where we started in the NL Central. It’s a tie for the top between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Milwaukee Brewers, both of whom are 40-32.

The Brewers took the first game on Monday and then the Cardinals took two in a row. Thursday’s first inning in the finale didn’t seem to bode well for the Brewers to escape with a split, as the Cardinals found two runs, the second thanks to a pretty significant defensive error.

The Brewers would get a run back in the bottom of the first and then in the fourth, Tyrone Taylor came in with the big hit of the game, a high, rushing three-run homer to give them the lead for good.

All of this means the series resulted in a split, and why not.

The two teams have been evenly matched in head-to-head action this season. They split a four-game series April 14-17 at Milwaukee and then split another four-game series at St. Louis May 26-29. Now it is another division. Through 12 games, each team has won six times and it’s basically been back and forth the entire time. In fact, in all three series, the Brewers won the first and last games with the Cardinals taking both in between. In these games, the Cardinals have scored 48 runs, the Brewers 44.

The Brewers have spent 51 days in the first to the Cardinals’ 30. The Brewers actually had a 4 1/2-game lead on May 26, but an eight-game losing streak in early June hurt. In general, they are 11-16 since May 26.

What remains between these two teams is a three-game series, where, hopefully, someone has to win it, on August 12-14 and a pair of two-game series in September. It will also be of great importance how well these two teams do against lackluster competition from the other three Central teams. The Pirates seem to pose the biggest threat on an individual level, but the Cardinals are 8-2 against them thus far, while the Brewers are 6-0.
