Milwaukee Needs to Find Their Offense 

The Milwaukee Brewers are 14-8 this season and they have won four of their last six games. The Brewers lost the first two games in this series and they have only scored a total of three runs in the two games. Prior to this series, Milwaukee swept St. Louis and lost two out of three to the Padres. The Brewers have had a very strong start to the 2024 season and they are leading the NL Central, but they have scored two runs or fewer in five of their last six games.

The Milwaukee pitching staff has a 3.37 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP, and a .235 opponent batting average. The Brewers offense has scored 117 runs with a .263 batting average and a .338 on base percentage. William Contreras is batting .341 with four home runs and 20 RBI’s for the Brewers this year. Milwaukee’s offensive numbers look pretty solid to start this season, but they need snap out of their recent funk to maintain their lead in the NL Central over Chicago and Cincinnati. 

Can the Pirates Grab Three in a Row?

The Pittsburgh Pirates are 13-11 this year and they have lost six of their last eight games. Pittsburgh has won the first two games in this series by scores of 2-1 and 4-2. Prior to this series, the Pirates were swept by the Red Sox (outscored 18-4) and the Mets (outscored 18-5). Pittsburgh opened the season playing at a very high level, but their offense has gone cold over the last couple of weeks. 

The Pittsburgh pitching staff has a 3.87 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP, and a .224 opponent batting average. The Pirates offense has scored 102 runs with a .241 batting average and a .323 on base percentage. Bryan Reynolds is batting .261 with two home runs and 13 RBI’s for the Pirates this year. Pittsburgh needs to wake their offense up as well, as they have scored two runs or fewer in six of their last seven games. The Pirates are fourth in the NL Central, behind the Brewers, Cubs, and Reds, but they are still two games over .500. 

Starting Pitching Matchup

Milwaukee is starting Bryse Wilson, who is 2-0 with a 3.29 ERA and a 0.88 WHIP over 13.2 innings pitched this year. Wilson only has one start this year, so you can expect him to go for a couple of innings before being replaced. Pittsburgh is going with Josh Fleming, who is 1-0 with a 1.74 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP over 10.1 innings pitched this year. Fleming also works out of the bullpen, so we should see plenty of different pitchers in this game. 

Milwaukee Brewers vs Pittsburgh Pirates Prediction

Milwaukee comes into this matchup with a 10-4 road record and they are currently leading the NL Central, but their offense has been very sluggish in recent games. Pittsburgh is just 5-5 at home so far this year, but they are looking to make it three wins in a row over the Brewers. This game seems strange, as multiple sites have different starting pitchers listed, so make sure you double check the starters for this one. I think we are going to see a lower scoring game, as both teams have been very low scoring recently, but I am leaning towards taking the Brewers on the road due to their stellar road record. My Milwaukee Brewers vs Pittsburgh Pirates prediction is to take Milwaukee to get the win.
