The Pittsburgh Pirates and Milwaukee Brewers face off on Thursday in an MLB showdown at American Family Field. 

Keller A Bright Spot

Mitch Keller has been one of the Bright Spots for the Pirates this season sitting with a 9-7 record and an ERA of 3.97. Even though he has been a bright spot in two of his last three starts he has struggled. In this game, Keller is going to need to be lights to give the Pirates a chance. The Pirates are averaging 4.14 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.78 runs per game. The offense is ranked 24th in the league while the defense is ranked 21st. Jack Suwunski has been the best hitter this season but he has been slumping a bit heading into this game. 

Brewers Continue to Confuse

The Brewers have found a lot of success this season, but they have been one of the more confusing teams all season. It seems whenever you start to trust them, they struggle. Even on Wednesday when they were able to beat the Reds, the Brewers offense only managed one run. The Brewers are averaging 4.17 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.29 runs per game. The offense is ranked 23rd while the pitching is ranked 11th. Christian Yellich has hit 16 home runs and driven in 60 RBIs. On the mound for the Brewers will be Adrian Houser who sits with a 3-3 record and an ERA of 3.43. 

Shane’s Free Pick

In this game runs are going to be hard to come by. Adrian Houser sits with an ERA of 3.43 and he’s going to lockdown in this game. The Pirates offense has been inconsistent and they are going to really stuggle in this game. I also expect Keller to bounce back here, and the Brewers bats are also going to be ice cold here. Both offenses are going to struggle here and the under is going to cash. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
