Tonight the Pittsburgh Pirates will be in Milwaukee to take on the Brewers in the first game of a four-game set.

For the Brewers, Corbin Burnes will get the start. This season, he is 0-0 with a 3.42 ERA over 26.1 innings pitched. In a start last Sunday against the Pirates, Burnes allowed three earned runs over 5.1 innings pitched. He struck out seven and walked two. The Pirates would eventually win that game as well by a score of 5-4. Although Burnes does not have a record this season, the Brewers have lost each of his past five starts.
