Milwaukee posted a 9-7 victory Monday night at Pittsburgh to improve to 58-56 overall and 25-32 on the road.

Trent Grisham finished 1-for-4 with three RBIs. Jordan Lyles picked up the win against his former team as he gave up three runs (one earned) on two hits with one strikeout and one walk over five innings. Josh Hader recorded the save as he allowed one earned run on two hits with two strikeouts and no walks over 1 1/3 innings. Chase Anderson will start tonight for Milwaukee as he enters with a 5-2 record, 3.73 ERA and 1.20 WHIP with 90 strikeouts over 94 innings.

Reyes, Reynolds homers in loss

Pittsburgh fell 9-7 at home Monday night against Milwaukee as 48-64 overall and 24-30 at home. Bryan Reynolds led the Pirates offense as he ended the game 3-for-5 with a solo home run, a double and two runs. Pablo Reyes finished 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit two-run homer.

MLB Betting Trends


The Brewers are 1-4 in their last five road games. Milwaukee is 1-9 in its last 10 Tuesday games.


The Pirates are 3-7 in their last 10 Tuesday games. Pittsburgh is 6-21 in its last 27 games overall.


Pittsburgh has struggled immensely lately and I don't trust Brault very much to turn things around. Anderson has been pretty solid this season and I expect him to get sufficient run support. Hader might not be available, which hurts, but overall I still think the Brewers are the right play.
