Felipe Vazquez gave up one hit with two strikeouts in a scoreless frame for his 36th save of the season. Adam Frazier was 2-for-4 with a run in the victory, while Starling Marte was 1-for-2 with a double plus a walk and two RBIs. Corey Dickerson ended the game 2-for-4 with a run. Colin Moran went 2-for-2 with an RBI.
Yelich reaches base twice
Christian Yelich was 1-for-3 with a double and a walk in Saturday's loss at Pittsburgh. Ryan Braun and Mike Moustakas were both 1-for-4, while Erik Kratz ended the game 1-for-3. Zach Davies took the loss in relief as he allowed two earned runs on four hits in four innings, striking out three and walking one.
MLB Betting Trends
The over is 12-2 in the last 14 Brewers games on Sundays. Milwaukee is 15-7 in its last 22 games overall.
The Pirates are 9-1 in their last 10 home games. Pittsburgh is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings.
The pitching matchup today favors the Brewers and Miley, who has been a very pleasant surprise for his squad. Kingham was strong to begin his MLB career as a rookie, but has faltered the last several months when given the opportunity in the big leagues. Don't look for Milwaukee to get shut down a second straight day, while Miley will likely give up two or three runs which puts it in a good spot for the over.
