The Brewers’ last game in St. Louis was rained out yesterday so they got an early start to the East Coast.
Jimmy Nelson takes the mound as a small underdog against the Pirates, who have shown a little more life with the bats of late. Though, of very late the Pirates have scored just two in each of their last two games.
They could get to Nelson, too. The Brewers’ starter is allowing opponents a .301 batting average and has walked 10. Those walk numbers have been skewed by the six free passes that he handed out two starts ago, against the St. Louis Cardinals.
A knee injury won’t keep Chad Kuhl from making the start tonight.
Pittsburgh has lost the last four games that Kuhl has started, though, and he needs to get back on track after allowing 15 hits in his last two starts that have not even lasted six innings, combined.
Prior to those last two, Kuhl had been throwing well – five earned runs in over 17 innings pitched over three starts. This will be his first chance against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Free Milwaukee Brewers vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction: both offenses come to play and send this one over.
It’s not like either starter is particularly hard to hit. Milwaukee flex’s its muscle and Pittsburgh uses its speed to put some runs on the board.
