The Milwaukee Brewers opened this series with an 11-5 victory Monday night. They’re now 14-14 on the road this season while the Pittsburgh Pirates are just 10-15 home at PNC Park.
Tonight Jhoulys Chacin (3-6, 4.88 ERA) will toe the slab for the Brew Crew. The 31-year-old righty has struggled in his day starts (9.18 ERA), but he’s been solid under the lights with a 3.03 ERA through 38 2/3 innings of work. Chacin posted a 3.03 ERA in six starts against Pittsburgh last season.
The Pirates turn to Chris Archer (1-5, 5.75 ERA) who has been tagged with 19 runs over just 17 2/3 innings of work over his last four starts. Unlike Chacin, Archer has been at his worst in night games giving up nine runs over as many innings. Archer is 0-2 with a 6.60 ERA in three career starts against Milwaukee.
The Brewers are 6-1 in their last 7 road games vs. a team with a losing home record while the Pirates are 4-17 in their last 21 home games vs. a team with a winning record.
