Milwaukee lost on Wednesday, but so did the Cubs so the Brewers’ lead remains 1.5 in the NL Central. That was the rubber match, though, so Milwaukee heads to Pittsburgh having lost a series it certainly should have hoped to win.
Jesus Aguilar did get some good news before the game on Wednesday, though. He was voted onto the NL All-Star Team in the final vote, recording over 20 million yays. The big horse leads the NL in homers and celebrated with three more RBIs last night.
Junior Guerra is approaching career-highs in starts and innings pitched; he’s having a damn good season, too. He threw nearly 122 innings in 20 starts in 2016 and has over 93 in 17 starts in 2018.
That means he isn’t getting quite as deep into games as he was two season ago, and his hits allowed, walks, and ERA numbers are all slightly up. He is striking out more, however, from 7.4 per nine this season to 8.8 this year. He wasn’t on anybody’s all-star radar but a 149 ERA+ makes me feel like maybe he should have, even if he wasn’t a top choice.
Pittsburgh once again spoiled the Nationals’ day with a 2–0 win in the series finale. Starling Marte hit a two-run homer for Pittsburgh’s only offense. Trevor Williams threw seven clean innings and the former National and lone Pirates all-star, Felipe Vazquez, struck out the side in order in the ninth for his 20th save.
Nick Kingham takes the ball on Friday. The rookie has an impressive WHIP (1.15) but his ERA is just slightly below average, actually.
He started in Milwaukee in early May, his second career start, and gave up four runs in 5.1 innings, striking out seven Brewers.

Free Milwaukee Brewers vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction: under.
With Travis Shaw missing some of his power, this Milwaukee lineup doesn’t scare pitchers like it once did. Still, Guerra has an excellent chance of keeping Pittsburgh down and giving his team a win.
