The Milwaukee Brewers conclude their visit to PNC Park and the Pittsburgh Pirates in Wednesday action.
The Milwaukee Brewers have taken some positive steps the past week and that trend must continue if they are to make a move in the National League Central. The Brewers just might be ready to make a move after a 4-1 win at Pittsburgh on Tuesday for their 4th in five contests. Rookie hurler Taylor Jungmann was outstanding in his major league debut with a solo homer allowed over seven innings to get the win. The offense didn’t waste the effort with Aramis Ramirez and Jason Rogers both going deep and driving in two runs each. Kyle Lohse hopes to right the ship when he opposes Pittsburgh for the second time on the year. Lohse has struggled over his last three outings with a combined 17 runs allowed on 25 hits over 14.2 frames.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have shown some positive signs over the past few weeks to reach second in the National League Central. The Pirates have slipped a bit lately with defeats in three of four after Tuesday’s loss to the visiting Brewers. Francisco Liriano was charged with three runs on five hits through eight frames to fall to 3-5. That was still too much for the offense on their four hit attack. Starling Marte was the only source of good news with homerun number 12 on the season. Charlie Morton makes his 4th start of the season since coming off the disabled list. Morton is coming off of a 10-8 victory at Atlanta where he gave up four runs (three earned) on seven hits and a trio of BB in five frames.
The under is 7-2 in Milwaukee’s last 9 road games and is 10-4 in their last 14 Wednesday games while the Brewers are 15-31 in their last 46 road games. Pittsburgh are 11-2 in their last 13 games as a favorite and are 13-4 in their last 17 overall while going 13-4 in their last 17 games on grass. I’m not a fan of either pitcher because Morton won’t keep up his early pace but I lean Buccos…
