Adrian Houser took the loss in the Brewers 6-1 defeat after going 4.1 innings and allowing 3 runs. He received little support, as the Brewers combined for 5 hits and were 0-6 with runners in scoring position. Jace Peterson was 1-3 and scored the teams only run. To start the season, the Brewers have a .201 team batting average and .633 OPS. Travis Shaw leads the team with 3 home runs and 12 RBI.

Starting for the Brewers on Saturday will be lefty Brett Anderson. To start the season he is 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 5 strikeouts. All-time against these Pirates he has allowed a .229 batting average with 6 strikeouts in 30 at bats.

The Pirates are 5-5 in their last 10 games, 5-5 on the run line, and the over is 6-3-1.

The Brewers are 6-4 in their last 10 games, 6-4 on the run line, and the under is 6-3-1.

Milwaukee took the loss last time out but has a good chance to even things up on Saturday. Brett Anderson looked good in his last start and will face a Pirates team that has struggled against lefty’s this season. The Brewers have not been much better overall to start the year, but they are the more talented team. Give me the Brewers to win.
