Game Thread #74: Milwaukee Brewers (38-35) vs. Pittsburgh Pirates (33-38)

#2017BrewersAce Guerra (1-1, 2.84 ERA) vs. Williams (3-3, 5.16 ERA)

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Milwaukee Brewers have lost the first two games of their four game set with the Pirates and entering today, their lead in the NL Central was down to a measly 0.5 games. The Cubs lost to the Padres earlier today, however, so if the Milwaukee Nine can figure out a eke out a victory tonight, they lead will be back up to 1.5 games. It's #JuniorGuerraDay, so hopefully the ace can buckle down and have a good outing tonight. Guerra's strong 2.84 ERA has masked an increase in walks and a drop in both strikeouts and velocity, however, but I'm trying not to get too worried about the ace.
