MLB Baseball Predictions
Milwaukee Brewers (79-73) at Washington Nationals (92-60) Pick
Milwaukee - Marco Estrada (4-6, 3.56)
Washington - Jordan Zimmermann (11-8, 2.96)
Home Record Milwaukee 46-29; Washington 47-30
Away Record Milwaukee 33-44; Washington 45-30
The Brewers have been on fire recently, but it won’t be enough to get them into the playoffs. They can only play for pride at this point. For the Brewers, Estrada has been especially impressive of late, only giving up only 10 earned runs over his last 58 innings pitched. However, Zimmerman is 2-0 in his last three starts and the Nationals are 4-3 this season against the Brewers.
The Nationals are 4 1/2 games in front of Atlanta for the National League East lead with 10 games to go.
Prediction: Nationals 6, Brewers 3
