On Friday the Braves will travel to Milwaukee to take on the Brewers. Atlanta will be looking to turn it around after getting swept at home by the Blue Jays. The Brewers will be also be coming off of a series loss but they were able to grab one game against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Atlanta will be coming into Friday evenings ball game sitting in the middle to bottom of the NL East standings, big reason for that has been the pitching. They are near the worst in all major categories giving up on average 5 runs per game and almost 8.5 hits per game.
They will need to get their pitching in order if they want to turn this season around and have a shot to win this ball game.
Speaking of pitching the Braves will be sending Drew Symly to the bump, he will be starting this game with a few extra days of rest between his last start. He has not been good this year he has a disappointing 1-2 record and a 6.12 ERA.
One positive though for him is he was much better last time out vs the Washington Nationals going 6 innings and not allowing an earned run. In hind sight Washington is not a good hitting club, but neither are the Brewers.
The Braves were hit with two injuries in the loss on Thursday. Cristian Pache and more importantly Ronald Acuna Jr both didn’t not complete the game Acuna has an ankle injury and was taken out in the 7th inning. On a positive note the X-Rays were negative but I would bet he’s going to miss a couple games. That will hurt the braves line up as he is probably their best hitter. Players will have to step up in his absence.
The Brewers come in sitting in 2nd place in the NL East, they are only 3 games back of the of the division leading Cardinals but only a game up on the Reds. They have struggled to hit the ball recently. Good news for them is their pitching generally keeps them in ball games, as it did in the 2-0 loss on Thursday night.
A good start for Corbin Burns and good relief pitching gave the Brewers every chance they could of asked for to come back but the hitting was non threatening all game.
The Brewers will need a good start from Adrian Houser if they want a shot to win this ball game. Houser is coming in off one of his best starts in his career, as he struck out 10 Marlins batters and and also hit a home run to help himself out.
He has a mediocre 3-3 record but has looked better than those numbers would suggest over his last couple of starts.
Milwaukee’s offence averages about 3.8 runs per game which ranks them amongst the worst in the league, they struggle in most of the main stats for hitting. They do often have guys in scoring position but they never can seem to come up with a big hit to bring them in.

Free Atlanta Braves vs. Milwaukee Brewers MLB Prediction:
The play here for me is the Milwaukee Brewers on the moneyline. I know they have been slumping at the plate but they have the better pitcher and with Acuna Jr probably not playing, I think Houser can get some clean innings and give this cold lineup a shot to heat up against Smyly who has struggled this season.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Milwaukee Brewers ML (-120)
I can’t put my money on the Braves here, they are coming off of a series where the bullpen really struggled blowing leads in every game vs Toronto and now they will be dealing with injuries and probably not having their best hitter will hurt them against one of the best pitching teams in baseball.
Also take a look at the under 8 runs. Milwaukee’s strength is pitching, they cant hit.
