Atlanta Braves vs Milwaukee Brewers Match Preview and Free Picks
The Milwaukee Brewers host the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday in the final meeting between the two teams this season, and nobody may be sadder than Keston Hiura. The Brewers rookie second baseman has feasted on Atlanta pitching in five games this season, going 3-for-3 with two RBIs in Tuesday’s 13-1 victory that evened the three-game series, improving to 10-for-19 with two homers, four extra-base hits, five runs scored and four RBIs against the Braves.
Milwaukee won for the just the third time in its past 11 games, as infielder Mike Moustakas recorded his 1,000th career hit with a seventh-inning single and right fielder Christian Yelich scored three times and belted his 33rd homer of the season -- a grand slam in the seventh -- as the Brewers remained 2 1/2 games behind the Cubs in the National League Central. Atlanta lost for the first time in five games on its current six-game road trip, shaving its lead in the NL East to 6 ½ games over Washington and 8 ½ games over Philadelphia. Center fielder Ronald Acuna Jr. singled in four at-bats to extend his hitting streak to a season-best 10 games, but the Braves offense -- which had averaged 5.2 runs on 8.7 hits in the previous 15 games -- finished with just five hits Tuesday. Atlanta’s bullpen, which entered the middle contest of the three-game series owning a 2.81 ERA since May 22, gave up nine runs in four innings Tuesday.
