Game Thread #130: Pittsburgh Pirates (63-65) @ Milwaukee Brewers (71-58)

Maybe the Brewers can beat the Pirates?

Christian Yelich is en fuego!

The last time the Milwaukee Brewers (71-58) faced the Pittsburgh Pirates (63-65) they dropped five straight just before the All Star break in Pittsburgh. That means regression says the Brewers will sweep the three game set over the weekend at Miller Park. Right?

Lefty Wade Miley draws the opening start, with his 2-2, 2.18 ERA record. Pirates’ righty Joe Musgrove (5-7, 3.31) has had a good season, so it seems imperative that Miley keep the Buccos off the board...or at least mitigates the damage.
