The Brewers are still in danger of being swept, three games into a five-game series. The Pirates beat the Brewers in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader, 2–1, behind 4.1 shutout innings from the bullpen to back up Ivan Nova.
The second game of Saturday is just getting underway as I write this. Milwaukee sends Brent Suter to the mound, pitching his first game in nearly two weeks after a short DL stint for forearm tightness.
Jhoulys Chacin will start the final game before the all-star break. He wasn’t named to the National League team, but he’s been super for the Brew Crew.
He’s already made 20 starts, already thrown nearly 110 innings and has posted an 8–3 record with a 110 ERA+.
In fact, Chacin has never been an all-star in a 10-year career in which he has been both durable and good. Some of his best seasons were spent in Colorado, where his ERA never looked good but in fact was, if you look at the normalized number.
It’s not like he’s over the hill at 30 years old. It’s actually a little hard to believe the Brewers were able to sign him for $15.5 million for two seasons over the winter.
Former first round pick of the Toronto Blue Jays (a supplemental pick that was actually 46th overall), Joe Musgrove will make his ninth start of the season after missing more than a month to start the year.
He’s been good most of the time, with five good starts and two not-so-great starts. Overall, he’s got an ERA of 3.77 and he’s striking out a batter per inning.
The Pirates have managed to hold off the hot Cincinnati Reds in the NL Central. The Bucs still hold a 3.5-game lead over Cincinnati to stay out of the cellar in the division.
Actually, both of those teams are playing better than both Milwaukee and St. Louis at the moment. The Pirates are closer to the Cardinals (2.5 games back) than the Reds are to them.
