Milwaukee Brewers vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction:
I look for the Brewers to keep rolling in this series. They have been a very hot team and I cannot see them losing to the Pirates here.
The Brewers are the better team and I feel they will take care of an inferior team on Friday.
Milwaukee has the clear advantage with Anderson on the mound. I look for him to induce weak contact and for the Brewers to hit around Keller.
Give me the Brewers on the run line in this one.
