Since the Cubs are off today, I thought I’d give all of you a game thread to follow along with the Pirates/Brewers game, which is being played at Miller Park in Milwaukee tonight at 6:40 p.m. CT.
Here are the game particulars.
Steven Brault vs. Brandon Woodruff
We saw Steven Brault start against the Cubs last week and give up three runs in five innings. Hopefully he’s better tonight.
Brandon Woodruff is making his fifth major-league start. He’s been really good in the other four: 1.52 ERA, 1.099 WHIP.
This doesn’t sound too promising for the Pirates. But, the Bucs are 8-5 against the Brewers this year, though only 2-4 at Miller Park.

If you click on this link, you can then click on “New Gameday” at the bottom of the page to get to the updated version. Note that the “classic” Gameday won’t load until just before game time.)
