The MLB is back in action on Sunday as the Pittsburgh Pirates will clash with the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This is the last game of the three-game series between the two teams. The Pirates will start this game with Trevor Williams and the Brewers will counter with Jhoulys Chacin.
Pittsburgh Pirates Form
The Pirates did not have a good season this year. They can only pray for pride and prestige until the end of the season. They will look to regroup in the offseason. Pittsburgh has averaged 4.57 runs per game and has allowed 4.85 runs per game on the road.
Trevor Williams will start this game and his record stands at 1-1 with a 2.18 ERA in four games (three starts) against the Brewers in his career, including 0-0 with a 4.15 ERA in two games (one start) here at Miller Park.
On the offensive side of the game, the Pirates have been below average this season as they are placed on the 19th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 4.33 runs per game. They are also on the 10th spot in hitting at .255 and on the 25th place in homers with a total of 143 so far. On the mound, they are placed on the 17th spot in the league in ERA at 4.08, while also being 17th in WHIP at 1.32 and on the 20th place in K’s with 1197.
Milwaukee Brewers Form
The Brewers are one of the teams that are in a great form at the moment. Their recent record stands at 12 wins from the last 16 games. They are also on the solid 2nd spot in their division and it seems like they will get the postseason Wildcard. They had a good season overall and I expect to see more from them in the postseason.
Milwaukee has averaged 4.68 runs per game and has allowed 4.15 runs per game here at home for the year. Jhoulys Chacin will be the starting pitcher in this game and his record against the Pirates stands at2-5 with a 4.08 ERA in 10 starts.
On the offensive side of the game, the Brewers have been above average this season as they are placed on the 14th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 4.51 runs per game, while also being on the 12th spot in hitting at .251 and 6th spot in homers with a total of 192. On the mound, they have been above average as they are placed on the 13th place in the league in ERA at 3.85. The Brewers are on the 11th spot in WHIP at 1.26 and 9th spot in K’s with 1297.
The Pirates have nothing to play except for pride and prestige. They have shown on the game on Saturday that they can be a spoiler as they won with a score of 3-1.
On the other side, the Brewers are a solid team and have been playing well in the last couple of months. They have lost the game on Saturday and I expect a better performance in this game. I expect that the Brewers will aim to secure their postseason spot and win this game in a convincing way.
