The Pittsburgh Pirates will be looking to bounce back off of a few disappointing performances, as they take on the Milwaukee Brewers at American Family Field this Wednesday.
The Pirates have proven that they can play at a pretty high level, as they have some wins over some pretty solid teams recently, but they are now on a 2-6 runs and have not started this series very well dropping the first game by a score of 6-2.
The Pirates are likely to continue struggling based on the moves they made at the trade deadline, as they certainly were sellers, and while that probably was not a bad idea in the long wrong it won’t help them down the stretch here in 2021.
The pitching staff will be a big point that this team will need to correct this coming offseason, as they have given up a 5.04 earned run average as a unit, and their starting 5 has not exactly been producing quality starts at regular intervals.
Steven Brault will be looking to produce one of those quality starts here against the Brewers and he might just be able to do that as enters this game with a 3.38 ERA, but it is tough to know just how far the manager will let him go in this game.
The Milwaukee Brewers look more and more like contenders as the season goes on and their recent 8-2 run certainly has been impressive and that hot streak has allowed them to open up a 7.5 game lead in the NL Central.
The Brewers have had to deal with a Covid outbreak recently and it looks like Christian Yelich will need to undergo testing today and will be expected back soon and if he can get anywhere close to where he used to be this team will be very dangerous, as the Brewers need all the bats they can get.
Freddy Peralta heads to the mound for this one and he has been awfully impressive recently giving up zero runs over his last two outings including a 6 inning effort against this Pittsburgh Pirates team

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Milwaukee Brewers MLB Prediction:
The Milwaukee Brewers are deserved favorites here, as I expect Peralta to be just as good this time out as he was last time he faced the Pirates and this Brewers offense has been sneaky good lately.
I also do not have a ton of faith in the Pirates the rest of the season, as I feel their deadline moves just weakened this team too much and with the Brewers possibly getting Yelich back I think we could see them cover the 1.5 run spread in this spot.
