Milwaukee Brewers vs Pittsburgh Pirates (By: Mulder)

The Pirates will start with LHP Brault on the mound who is 2-1 with a 5.45 ERA. He is pretty much pitching to his numbers. He has a solid 7.53 K/9, but very shaky command: 5.45 BB/9.

On the road he is 2-0 but with a worse 6.23 ERA> 5.19 BB/9.

He pitched last season against the Brew Crew and posted a 8.22 ERA ( 1.70 WHIP ) in 7.2 IP.

For the Brewers RHP Anderson will take place on the mound who is 3-1 with a 3.93 ERA. He pitched a little worse than that but i like his 9.82 K/9. In his last outing he allowed 3 homers against the Fish, but he posted a better 2.55 xFIP that outing. With no BB and 6 K's it was not that bad as it looked. The outing prior to that he allowed two runs on 6 hits in Pittsburgh against this very Bucs team indeed.

-Brewers are 4-1 in Andersons last 5 home starts versus the Pirates.

But i think the offense will make the difference. At home, the Brew Crew are great against LHP with a huge .375 wOBA ( 5th ), but what about that power at home. Indeed, they destroy lefties when it comes to brutal power with a .276 ISO, which is THE BEST by far in the majors.

Hence backing the Brew Crew for a nice and clean sweep.
