Pirates Look to Make Things Even More Difficult for Struggling Brewers

Pirates inching closer to a playoff spot

Whether they wind up winning the Central, or grab a Wild Card spot, the Pirates are closing in on the playoffs with each passing game. They are 3.5 games ahead of Milwaukee for the second Wild Card position and can extend that lead in this important series, which begins on Friday night at PNC Park. Pittsburgh will send Jeff Locke to the mound as he looks to win the opener of this series for the Pirates.

Brewers seeing season come to an end after strong start

Following a strong start to the year, the Brewers have fallen from grace and fallen hard. They do not hold a playoff spot in either the Central or Wild Card races and have not shown any signs of making a comeback to secure one in the final days of the season. Yovani Gallardo will take the ball tonight as he looks to win one of the most important games of the year for the Brewers. They cannot afford to lose any head-to-head meetings with Pittsburgh if they want to stay in the playoff race.

On Friday night, we will visit Sportsbook.ag to place our wager on the Pirates and the Brewers as they fight for a playoff spot. We will drop 15 percent of our bankroll on Pittsburgh and the -125 money line as they take game one of this NL Central rivalry series.
