The MLB is back on Tuesday evening as the Milwaukee Brewers will clash with the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park In Pittsburgh, PA in game two of their four-game series. The Brewers will give a start to Freddy Peralta and Jameson Taillon will be the starter for the Pirates.
Milwaukee Brewers Form
The Milwaukee Brewers are heading into this game after they lost the last game against the Pirates with a score of 1-0. That defeat was a blow to their ambitions to win the National League Central. Currently, the Brewers are on the 2nd place in the Division and they are facing a very competitive race for the top. It is a close contest as the Cardinals, the Cubs and the Pirates are in the mix for the top. The Brewers have averaged 4.47 runs per game and have allowed 3.39 runs per game out on the road for the year. Freddy Peralta record against the Pirates stands at 6-1 with a 2.75 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP in 12 starts at Colorado Springs (AAA) this year.
On the offensive side of the game, the Brewers have been in an average form this season as they are placed on the 12th spot in the league in scoring, putting up an average of 4.42 runs per game, while also holding the 13th spot in hitting at .249 and 8th place in homers with a total of 90 so far. On the mound, they are one of the better teams as they are placed on the 6th spot in the league in ERA at 3.50, while also holding the 10th spot in WHIP at 1.23rd and 13th place in K’s with 614.
Pittsburgh Pirates Form
The Pirates did not have good games against the Reds as they only won one game. However, the Pirates won the last game against the Brewers with a score of 1-0. That win came at the right time as they are on a quest to reach the top of the National League Central. The Pirates have averaged 4.94 runs per game and have allowed 4.11 runs per game here at home for the year.
Jameson Taillon record against the Brewers stands at 1-3 with a 3.47 ERA in seven starts.

On the mound, their stats are average as they are placed on the 22nd place in the league in ERA at 4.30, while also holding the 20th place in WHIP at 1.32 and 19th spot in K’s with 586.
The Pirates are aiming the top spot at the National League Central. On the other side, the Brewers are on the 2nd spot and are in a tight contest with the Cubs. Based on the stats, the Brewers are solid on the road, yet I expect a solid performance by the Pirates as they are in a better form currently. Go for the Pirates in this one.
