Pirates vs. Brewers Prediction

I’m on the Brewers here. I just flat out don’t trust the Pirates to string consistent offensive performances together as that has not been Pittsburgh’s M.O. for much of the season. The Brewers were beat down and were out of it pretty early in Tuesday’s matchup, but I think with how badly they beat on Perez in the matchup earlier this season, I think the Brew Crew get some revenge. Perez is normally a guy that pitches to a high-four, low-five ERA by season’s end, and for his ERA to be where it is right now is just flat out unsustainable. I think the Brewers get their pound of flesh on Wednesday. Give me Milwaukee.
