With a record of 62-42 they are 2nd in the National League Central. They lead the Reds by 7 games.
Before this series, the Brewers swept a 3 game set with the Pirates. In that series, they scored 28 runs and allowed 3 runs.
Corbin Burnes went 4 innings and allowed 5 earned runs on Friday.
Brett Anderson has been good this year. The left hander is 3-5 with a 3.86 ERA. His last start was against the Pirates on Tuesday where he went 6 innings and did not allow an earned run. The Brewers won that game 9-0.
Pitching has been a big strength of this team so far. The team has an ERA of 3.29 which is 2nd best in baseball.
This club has also been good on offense as they are scoring 4.58 runs per game which is 13th best in baseball.

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
The Braves were up early in game 1, but they could not hold the lead. I look for them to play a complete game on Sunday and get the win.
Milwaukee is the better team this year, but you cannot take the Braves lightly. I feel better with Atlanta in this one than I do with Milwaukee.
The better pitcher here is Morton and I look for him to toss a good game and keep the Brewers relatively in check. Atlanta should definitely be able to hit around Anderson.
A lot of bets are coming in on the Brewers, but I just do not feel great with them in this one. I am going with the Braves on the moneyline.
