Since there were only four teams that would not play the weekend due to cases of coronavirus infection, the cancellation of another duel was confirmed on Friday morning, said in passing, due to the same situation.
Sources from Jon Heyman of MLB Network say that several players of the St. Louis Cardinals have tested positive for Covid-19, therefore, although MLB has not made it official, this afternoon's game against the Brewers will be suspended.

Remember that even before the multiple cases of San Luis players were revealed, the other two teams that still deal with the virus are the Marlins and the Phillies, curiously both from the same Eastern Division of the National League.
Positive coronavirus tests with the St. Louis Cardinals have postponed their game against the Milwaukee Brewers, a source tells ESPN, confirming the @jonheyman report. Unclear how many, but to this point positives had been limited to teams in the East. Now in the Central, too.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) July 31, 2020
It is worth mentioning that all the members of the Cardinals organization have isolated themselves in a hotel in the city of Milwaukee, where today they would face the Brewers in their inaugural game at home of the 2020 season.
At the moment it is not known how many, nor who are the elements that tested positive, but according to Mark Saxon of The Athletic, if the rest of the team tests negative, the series in Milwaukee would resume on Saturday.
