Like the Pirates (17-15), the first-place Brewers (19-13) are going streaking.
Milwaukee has won 11 of its last 15 after sweeping the Reds in three games in Cincinnati this week. Before that they lost four in a row at the Cubs; before that they’d rattled off an eight-game winning streak against the Reds, Marlins and Royals.
The Brewers should have full use of their bullpen, with an off day Thursday as well as Monday.
Stephen Vogt and Eric Thames are on the disabled list.
