FREE MLB PICK Milwaukee Brewers vs Pittsburgh Pirates
The Pittsburgh Pirates host the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night for the second of the three game series between the NL Central foes.
The Pittsburgh Pirates continue to struggle as they dropped Monday's game to the Milwaukee Brewers, 9-7. Despite their solid outing, scoring seven runs on eight hits, the team was unable to contain the Brewers offensive explosion. The Pirates did play better in the second half of the game, as things started out 5-0 heading into the bottom of the fourth inning but then bounced back to end as a two run game. While close isn't what they were shooting for, there is encouraging signs in a seven run game and the Pirates can try to rally with that momentum to steal game two on Tuesday night.
Heading to the mound for the Pirates on Tuesday night will be LHP Steven Brault, who enters the contest with a 3-1 record and a 4.15 ERA. He returns to the rotation after suffering a shoulder strain injury and now looks to come back with a strong start. His last outing was July 5th, where he started against the Milwaukee Brewers allowing just one run in four innings pitched. Can he return with another strong outing against Milwaukee? We'll find out on Tuesday night.
