The Pirates are the home betting favorite tonight and while A.J. Burnett has won his last 6 starts he has not pitched well in his last 2. He has allowed a combined 9 earned runs in his last 2 outings, but his offense has bailed him out.

Burnett is 0-3 in his last 4 starts against the Brewers and overall the Pirates have lost their last 5 games against Milwaukee when he has gotten the starting nod.

Burnett will be facing a Milwaukee offense that only ranks 26th in runs scored. He has not been sharp in his last 2 starts, but does rank 6th in the National League in ERA.

Jimmy Nelson has given up a combined 10 earned runs in his last 2 starts and the Brewers have lost their last 3 games with him on the hill. The Pirates have only lost once in 6 games against Milwaukee this season and that was on opening day when Nelson got the win going 7 innings and not giving up any earned runs.

The Brewers have lost 6 of their last 8 road games when Nelson has gotten the start.

On May 20th the Pirates were 4-games under .500, but they have gone 13-3 since.

The Pittsburgh offense has been solid ranking 13th in runs scored, but they are winning with their pitching, which ranks 2nd in the Majors in team ERA.
