  • Milwaukee Brewers won 10-2 when the two teams last met on May 15

Pittsburgh Pirates Form

Pittsburgh enter this series on the back of a victory, but in poor form having lost six of ther previous 10 games.

The Pirates failed to build on a couple of wins in Cincinnati when they moved on to Atlanta to face the Braves.

They dropped the first two games of that series, 6-1 and 2-1, before avoiding being swept as they took the final encounter, 4-2.

Pittsburgh returned home after that and sandwiched a 5-4 win over St Louis with 7-4 and 3-2 defeats at the hands of the Cardinals.

The Pirates then hosted the New York Mets and made a successful start to the series, winning 14-2, before rebounding from 5-2 and 3-2 defeats with an 8-2 win.

Milwaukee Brewers Form

Milwaukee enter this series on the back of a victory in Los Angeles that ended a three-game skid.

The Brewers hit a rich vein of form in late June as they followed up a 6-2 win in San Diego with 6-3, 3-1 and 6-5 home victories over Texas.

They then played host to the Chicago Cubs and sandwiched a 5-3 defeat to the visitors with 4-2 and 7-1 wins.

Milwaukee went out on the road after that and split a four-game series with Colorado, rebounding from an 8-7 loss with 4-3 and 3-0 wins, only to lose the final meeting 3-0.

The Brewers then travelled to Los Angeles and lost 8-5 and 5-3 to the Dodgers, but they avoided being swept as they won the series finale, 9-2.

Verdict

Milwaukee have been a reliable pick at home and have a big advantage at starting pitcher for this one, so we expect a comfortable Brewers win.
