Pittsburgh Pirates vs Milwaukee Brewers Match Preview and Free Picks

The Milwaukee Brewers go after a second straight series victory in their battle for a National League playoff spot Sunday afternoon when the Pittsburgh Pirates pay a visit the finale of a three-game set. The Pirates evened the series after pounding out 14 hits in a 9-1 triumph Saturday as the Brewers fell 4 1/2 games behind the first-place Chicago Cubs in the NL Central and into a virtual tie with Colorado for the second wild card.

Milwaukee’s Christian Yelich homered for the third straight contest Saturday and has gone deep five times in his last seven outings to push his career-best total to 23 while extending his hitting streak to 11 games. Chase Anderson gets the call in the rubber match for the Brewers and Pittsburgh counters with fellow right-hander Chris Archer, who goes for his second win in his fifth start since being acquired.

The Pirates, who won for just the third time in 12 games Saturday, scored 15 times in the last two contests after managing just seven runs in the previous seven encounters. Versatile Adam Frazier has helped lead the way for Pittsburgh in its offensive revival while going 4-for-9 with five RBIs - three coming on a homer Saturday - and three runs scored in the series.

Lorenzo Cain is 7-for-13 with a homer and four RBIs versus Archer, who gave up one run over six innings in his only career outing against Milwaukee.

Brewers RH Chase Anderson (8-7, 3.92): MAnderson is unbeaten in his last six starts after limiting Cincinnati to two runs on two hits over six innings to win 5-2 on Monday.
