Brewers Continue Drive For Postseason Berth
The thoughts of an NL Central title are probably out of the minds of the Milwaukee Brewers, but a Wild-Card spot is within reach, and the team is playing very well right now. On Friday night, it was veteran Andrew McCutchen having the big night, driving in three runs to pass 1,000 for his career in a 5-3 win over the Cincinnati Reds.
“I’ve been doing it for a while, I guess,” McCutchen said after Friday’s win. “Anybody who can have that attached to them means you’ve been doing it for a while and doing it right.”
McCutchen was 1-for-4 with a double, a walk and a run scored in the win. The 35-year-old is batting .240 with 24 doubles, 17 home runs, 69 RBIs and 65 runs scored.
Right-hander Corbin Burnes will get the start for the third game of the series. Burnes is 10-8 with a 3.12 ERA in 30 starts, ranking third in the majors with 223 strikeouts. He had troubles in his last start, going 5⅔ innings against the New York Mets on Monday and allowing five runs on seven hits while striking out four and walking one.
Reds Trying To Find Consistency At Plate
The Cincinnati Reds got off to a fast start on Friday night, scoring two runs in the first inning against the Milwaukee Brewers. Unfortunately, they scored just one run the rest of the way, falling 5-3 to the visitors for a second straight game.
Designated hitter Kyle Farmer drove in the two runs with a double. Farmer is batting .258 with 24 doubles, a triple, 13 home runs, 73 RBIs and 56 runs scored.
Cincinnati will have right-hander Graham Ashcraft returning from a biceps injury to make the start on Saturday. Ashcraft is 5-3 with a 3.97 ERA in 16 starts in his first major league season but hasn’t pitched since Aug. 19. In that game, against the Pittsburgh Pirates, he went 6⅔ innings and allowed three runs on nine hits while striking out eight and walking one.
Brewers vs Reds Head-To-Head
The Milwaukee Brewers have already clinched the season series with the Cincinnati Reds for the second straight season, leading 12-5. Milwaukee was 10-9 against Cincinnati a season ago.
The Brewers have been dominant in playing at the Great American Ball Park since the start of the 2021 campaign, going 13-4. The MLB lines for Saturday are favoring Milwaukee to continue that trend with another win.

Brewers vs Reds Prediction
The Milwaukee Brewers are starting to put things together as they look for yet another postseason berth, while the Cincinnati Reds are simply playing out the string. Having Ashcraft back will be good for Cincinnati, but it won’t be enough to stop the Brewers from getting another victory.
When making your MLB picks, take Milwaukee to win on the road.
