|Time||8:10 p.m. ET|
The Brewers enter Monday’s contest in Milwaukee with a commanding seven-game lead on the NL Central, while the Pirates sit a woeful 22.5 games back in last place.
Milwaukee has won five of its last six games, including a clean three-game road sweep of the Pirates. But despite Milwaukee’s recent dominance, there is reason to key in on Monday’s NL Central showdown.
For Pittsburgh, right-hander Bryse Wilson is taking the mound to make his Pirates debut after being traded from the Braves last week.
Pittsburgh isn’t expecting Wilson to shut down Milwaukee, but he provides a different look for the Brewers no less.
In the Braves win over the Brewers on Saturday, Atlanta used a combination of five solid innings from starter Kyle Muller and an impressive night from their bullpen to knock off Milwaukee despite a solid night for their starter. A similar pattern would likely be the script for a Pittsburgh win on Monday night.
