Steven Brault (0-1, 4.80 ERA) vs. Brandon Woodruff (2-2, 3.19 ERA)

MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at Milwaukee Brewers Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The Brewers’ bats have seemed to wake up a bit in the last two games against Pirates pitching, and they’ll hope to continue the trend and secure a series win against Pittsburgh this afternoon at Miller Park before playing a rare Monday series finale tomorrow.

Brandon Woodruff gets the ball for the Crew, facing lefty Steven Brault and his weird reptile skin tattoos.

A lefty on the mound for the Pirates means Jedd Gyorko gets a start at third base, while Jacob Nottingham gets another start behind the plate. Avisail Garcia is out of the lineup after being slightly hobbled the last couple days. Ryan Braun is DHing after being scratched from an outfield start Saturday night.

First pitch is 1:10 p.m. CDT.
