Current record: 25-25, 3rd place in NL Central, 3.0 games back
Up Next: Milwaukee Brewers, 23-28, 5th place in NL Central, 5.5 games back
Season Series: 0-0, First time playing.
Notes: If the Pirates have had a nemesis the last few years it’s been the Brewers, especially in Miller Park. Milwaukee is a shell of last year’s division winner. Prince Fielder left for the Tigers and his replacement Mat Gamel is out for the year. Starting SS Alex Gonzalez has also been lost for the season and C Jonathan Lucroy just broke his hand and is out for a few weeks. Ryan Braun is stil on the team and slugging as well as ever.
