Brewers edge Pirates

Milwaukee held on for a 4-3 victory Tuesday night at Pittsburgh despite resting star Christian Yelich. Yasmani Grandal helped lead the Brewers offense as he ended the game 2-for-3 with two doubles, a walk, a run scored and an RBI. Ryan Braun went 1-for-3 with a walk and two runs. Trent Grisham finished 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and a run scored. Junior Guerra retired the only batter he faced to pick up the win in relief. Matt Albers registered the save as he allowed one earned run on two hits with no strikeouts or walks over one inning of work. Drew Pomeranz will draw the start tonight for Milwaukee as he enters with a 2-9 record, 5.54 ERA and 1.59 WHIP with 97 strikeouts over 79 2/3 innings pitched. 

Reynolds homers in loss

Pittsburgh fell by a score of 4-3 at home Tuesday night to drop to 48-65 overall and 24-31 at home. Bryan Reynolds helped lead the Pirates offensively as he finished 1-for-4 with a solo home run. Jose Osuna was 2-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI. Pablo Reyes ended the contest 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI. Francisco Liriano took the loss in relief as he gave up one earned run on two hits with one strikeout and one walk over one inning. Trevor Williams will be on the mound tonight for Pittsburgh as he comes in with a 4-4 record, 4.75 ERA and 1.32 WHIP with 77 strikeouts over 94 2/3 innings.

MLB Betting Trends

Milwaukee

The Brewers are 6-13 in their last 19 games versus a right-handed starter. Milwaukee is 10-3 in the last 13 meetings.

Pittsburgh

The Pirates are 0-4 in their last four home games. Pittsburgh is 4-1 in the last five Williams home starts.

Prediction:

With Pomeranz having a rough season and the Brewers having trouble with right-handed starters lately, I am leaning more towards Williams and the Pirates here. Williams has been underwhelming after a fantastic 2018, but he has the chops and has pitched a litlte better as of late. I like Pittsburgh to get a back back here.
