Moran drives in lone run

Pittsburgh lost by a score of 3-1 Saturday night at Milwaukee to drop to 39-42 overall and 22-23 on the road. Colin Moran helped lead the Pirates offense as he ended the game 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI. Kevin Newman was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored. Corey Dickerson went 1-for-3 with a double.

Thames guides Brewers to win

Milwaukee secured a 3-1 victory Saturday night at home over Pittsburgh to move to 44-39 overall and 26-18 at home. Eric Thames led the Brewers offensively as he finished 2-for-4 with a home run, a triple and two RBIs. Yasmani Grandal went 2-for-4 with a double. Christian Yelich ended the game 0-for-2 but drew two walks and scored a run. Brandon Woodruff picked up the win as he allowed one earned run on six hits over 7 2/3 innings, striking out six and no walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Pittsburgh

The Pirates are 7-2 in their last nine games overall. Pittsburgh is 6-2 in the last eight Brault starts.

Milwaukee

The Brewers are 16-5 in their last 21 Sunday games. Milwaukee is 4-1 in the last five Davies home starts.

Prediction:

While Milwaukee's offense still isn't quite clicking on all cylinders right now, it has the starting pitching advantage here and for whatever reason the Brewers excel on Sundays. I think yesterday and today could serve as a springboard to get the Brewers trending back in a positive direction. Look for the hosts to get the job done here.
