The Milwaukee Brewers will look to continue rolling this Thursday, as they take on a Pirates team who has shown that they are perfectly capable of pulling off big upsets, so the Brewers cannot overlook their opponents in this spot.
The Brewers really have been one of the biggest surprises in the league this year and they now have a stranglehold over the NL Central, as they have a 7 game cushion above second place and with the pitching this team has it is tough to imagine them getting caught.
The Brewers batting lineup is a bit of a concern, but they are getting the job done providing the starting pitchers with just enough run support to consistently pick up these wins, as they now rank 14th in the league in offense with 448 total runs scored.
Freddy Peralta will be on the hill for this one and he will give this team a big leg up in terms of the starting pitching matchup, as he comes in here with a 7-3 record and a 2.29 ERA and he has flashed serious strike out stuff already racking up 140 K’s this season.
The Pirates are really struggling in this series, as they returned from San Francisco with a series win, but have been unable to carry that momentum over losing the first game of this series by a score of 9-0.
The management for the Pirates decided to trade Frazier leaving a huge gap in this batting order and there is not a ton left over to pick up the slack, so I am unconvinced this team will be able to consistently put up runs the rest of the year.
Chad Kuhl is the projected starter here and although he does not have the best statistics in the world, he actually is a pretty decent pitcher and he might be able to put in a quality start here to give his side a chance of picking up this win in front of the home fans.

Free Milwaukee Brewers vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction:
I am not overly convinced in either of these batting lineups and I think both of these pitchers can have nice outings and go deep into this game, so I do not predict there being many runs scored.The total is also pretty decent here at 8 given the pitching matchup, so there is a bit of line value here as well, as I would have had this one at 7.5.
