Live Discussion: Pirates at Brewers, 2:10 PM

The Pittsburgh Pirates (39-42) take on the Milwaukee Brewers (44-39) for three games at Miller Park this weekend. The Pirates will send out Steven Brault for the series finale this afternoon. He gave up three runs over five innings against the San Diego Padres in his last start. That followed six shutout innings versus the Miami Marlins. Brault faced Milwaukee back on June 9th and gave up two runs over 6.1 innings, which is his longest outing of the season. The Brewers will counter with 26-year-old right-hander Zach Davies, who has a 3.34 ERA in 86.1 innings, with 57 strikeouts and a 1.39 WHIP. He has thrown a total of 11.2 innings in his last three starts combined, allowing 12 earned runs. Davies made two starts against the Pirates (6/2 and 6/8) and allowed five runs over 13 combined innings.
