Brewers Look to Bounce Back

The Brewers can’t be very happy with the way they looked on Monday. The Brewers couldn’t get anything going early, and that led them to losing by a couple of runs. The Brewers on the season are averaging 5.7 runs while their pitching is giving up 3.95 runs per game. They are averaging 9.7 hits per game which is second in baseball. Getting the start for the Brewers will be Wade Miley who sits with an 0-1 record and an ERA of 5.14. In two starts this season he has gone only seven innings and given up five hits and four earned runs. In the last start against the San Diego Padres, he went three innings giving up four hits and three earned runs. He has had only two strikeouts this season. In this game, the Brewers are going to need to give Miley some run support. 

Pirates use Solid Pitching on Monday

The Pirates used good pitching on Monday to pace the team to a two run victory. Jared Jones had a strong game going six innings giving up four hits and one run. He also had seven strikeouts. Andrew McCutchen hit a home run and drove in three RBIs. The Pirates on the season is averaging 4.36 runs per game while their pitching is giving up 4.5 runs per game. The offense is ranked 15th in the league while the pitching is ranked 15th. The Pirates haven’t leaned on the long ball and are averaging only 0.77 home runs per game which is 26th in baseball. Getting the start for the Pirates will be Bailey Falter who sits with a 1-1 record and an ERA of 4.05. In his last start against the New York Mets, he went five innings giving up four hits and two runs. He gave up a home run and a walk.

Brewers vs Pirates Betting Prediction

The Pirates are going to find success here. Bailey Falter hasn’t been dominant this season but he hasn’t been bad, and he’s going to have another solid start, even against a good Brewers offense. I don’t trust Wade Miley, especially with his lack of strikeouts, and the Pirates are going to find a way to get the offense going early. The Brewers aren’t going to be keeping up and the Pirates offense will score just enough runs to get the job done. Back the Pirates on the money line to cash.
