The Brewers are coming off of a disappointing series against the Mets, but they were able to get a big win on Wednesday to avoid the sweep. Milwaukee is 2.5 games out of a wild card spot and can’t afford to have too many more losses. Cincinnati hasn’t had the best season and has one of the worst records in the NL. Milwaukee should come out strong in this series knowing that they can’t afford a loss. The Brewers are on the road, but have the pitching advantage. I am taking the Brewers to win by at least two runs.
