Mike Lundin‘s Pirates vs. Brewers Free Pick
Start Time: June 20, 2017, 7:40 PM
The Pittsburgh Pirates won the series opener 8-1 on Monday, and I think they’ll come out strong here in the second game of the set as well.
Chad Kuhl (1-6, 5.61 ERA) takes the ball for the Pirates. The right-hander has had a tough year, and Pittsburgh has lost each of his last four starts. Kuhl himself has pitched pretty well lately though, allowing only six runs on 11 hits in a total of 15 innings through his last three starts combined.
Kuhl is 1-0 with a 1.76 ERA in three career starts against the Brewers who turn to Zach Davies (7-3, 4.91 ERA) who unlike Kuhl has pitched pretty poorly but been bailed out by the Brewers bats.
Davies has conceded a total of eight runs (nine earned) on 13 hits with a pair of homers in 10 innings through his last two starts combined. Davies is 1-2 with a bloated 9.56 ERA in four career starts against Pittsburgh.
Milwaukee is 38-34 on the season, but just 19-21 home at Miller Park. Let’s go with the Pirates as Tuesday’s free pick.
