The Pittsburgh Pirates are on the road at the American Family Field in Milwaukee this Tuesday for the second game of their series with the Brewers in what might end up to be an interesting game from a betting perspective.
The Pirates are 4 and 5 in their last 9 games showing that they can pick up some wins against solid competition with series wins against both the San Francisco Giants and Philadelphia Phillies during that span.
There are plenty of worries for this team going forward though, as they traded their best batter and that will not be too helpful to a team who ranks 30th in total runs scored with just 384 runs scored on the season.
The one guy I would look out for the rest of the season would be the rookie Ke’Bryan Hayes who has looked to be a nice find for the Pirates batting .257 with decent pop although his numbers do not quite show that yet.
Max Kranick will head to the mound for the Pirates in this one and he is not exactly going to give the Pirates a ton of confidence here, as he is coming off of a brutal outing where he allowing the Brewers to get 10 hits and 5 runs in 5 innings pitched.
The Milwaukee Brewers are absolutely rolling at this point winning 7 of their last 9 games to further their stranglehold on the NL Central, as they maintain their 7 game lead ahead of the Cincinnati Reds.
The biggest difference is that this batting lineup is finally starting to get going with guys like Kolten Wong being invaluable recently and this has been the sticking point with them all year, as all it will take is a league average offense to make this team very dangerous in the postseason.
The Brewers will certainly have the advantage on the hill here with Adrian Houser taking to the mound, as he is coming off of shutting down this Pirates team allowing no runs over 5 innings during that last start.

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Milwaukee Brewers MLB Prediction:
The Pittsburgh Pirates will find themselves over matched by plenty of teams this year, but the Brewers present a uniquely tough challenge, as they play fundamentally sound baseball and do not make a ton of mistakes.
The Brewers batting lineup is starting to heat up and that should be bad news for Kranick here, as I do not expect him to make it very far in this game with the Brewers likely jumping out to an early lead here.
