Pittsburgh Pirates vs Milwaukee Brewers (August 6 – 19:05 EST)

Expected Pitchers: Steven Brault (3-1, ERA: 4.15) vs Chase Anderson (5-2, ERA: 3.73)

The Pirates host the Brewers on Tuesday night for their second game of this National League series. If we take a look at previous meetings between the two ball clubs this year, the Milwaukee Brewers have won 10 of the 14 games. The Brewers have the clear edge when it comes to the head to head match-ups in 2019. In terms of form, the Brewers sit just below .500 going 7-8 in their last 15. On the other hand, the Pirates are an abysmal 2-13 in their last 15 matches. Anderson wins the pitching match-up in this one. He has been great as of late. The 31-year-old has surrendered two runs or less in each of his last eight starts.The Brewers are only 2 games back of a wild card spot in the NL. They should be motivated and have incentive to earn a victory. The Pirates have been receiving mediocre pitching and below average offence and that should continue to be the trend tonight. In addition, their roster is still quite thin due to several players involvement in a brawl last week and subsequent suspension.


Houston Astros vs Colorado Rockies (August 6 – 20:10 EST)

Expected Pitchers: Zack Greinke (10-4, ERA: 2.90) vs German Marquez (10-5, ERA: 4.68)

This one is the first of a two game series between these teams. Houston is the hotter team coming into Tuesday night. The Astros are a fantastic 8-2 in their last 10 games and they are looking to keep up that blistering pace at home tonight. There have only been two previous meetings between these teams this season. Furthermore both of those games were convincing wins for the Astros. Colorado has played quite decent as of late however “decent” does not secure you a playoff spot in the competitive National League. They seem to be on the outside looking in with a huge mountain to climb. Their pitching has been a weak point and the Astros may be too much for them when the dust settles. Houston’s pitching and batting are both near the top of the league in terms of numbers. The newly acquired Greinke will make his first start for the Astros tonight. He put up great numbers in Arizona without the offensive support he would be getting in Houston. The Astros are poised to take this contest.
