Pittsburgh vs. Milwaukee,

Score: 4 - 3
Money Line: +109 Milwaukee
The Milwaukee Brewers have Yovani Gallardo on the mound in tonight’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
To say that Gallardo has had a great career against Pittsburgh is a pretty big understatement. He has absolutely dominated the Pirates.
Gallardo has an ERA of 2.59 against the Pirates in 111 innings in his career. The Brewers have won 9 of his last 10 home starts against Pittsburgh.
They have won 15 of his last 18 starts overall against Pittsburgh. If that wasn’t enough, the Pirates are just 10-45 in their last 55 games played in Milwaukee.
The Pirates have a lot of pressure on them to finish off the season, and I still think they could slide a bit before the season ends.
The Pittsburgh lineup just isn’t as good as most top teams in the majors, and the pitching staff has been slightly more inconsistent of late.
Gerrit Cole is a great young pitcher, but he hasn’t been as sharp in his last couple outings. Don’t be surprised if he gets touched up for a few runs by the Brewers here.
Given Gallardo’s past dominance of the Pirates, it shouldn’t take too many runs for the Brewers to come out on top.
Take Milwaukee. Good Luck, Razor Ray.
