Devin Williams recorded his 27th save of the year with a 1-2-3 ninth inning that included one strikeout.

 

In this game, Adrian Houser, pitching for the Brewers, is making his 15th appearance and 13th start of the season. He pitched 67 innings this season and is 3-3 with a 4.43 ERA, 1.567 WHIP, 23 walks, and 52 strikeouts.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs Milwaukee Brewers. The MLB pick for this game is the Pittsburgh Pirates.

 

The Brewers had some recent struggles and weren’t particularly active prior to the trade deadline; their biggest addition was Arizona’s acquisition of Andrew Chafin to strengthen the bullpen.

 

Milwaukee has the advantage of playing on their home ground in this game, although Houser had some recent struggles. Although Keller lost his last three outings, he performed far better than in years past.

 

Since losing their first five games following the All-Star break, the Pirates improved. Lean toward the better pitcher in a match with average starting lineups, which suggests supporting the opposing team.

 

Pittsburgh will win to a predicted score of 6-4.
