At PNC Park
Game time: 7:05PM ET
Probable starters:
MIL: Brent Suter (1-1, 2.96 ERA)
PIT: Chad Kuhl (3-6, 4.96 ERA)

Quote:
The first-place Brewers will be put to the test with their first and longest road trip of the second half, beginning with a four-game set in Pittsburgh on Monday.

Meanwhile, the Pirates are looking to gain ground in the division, and this series might be their last chance to declare themselves as contenders before the front office has to start making decisions about the club's approach to the upcoming non-waiver Trade Deadline.

Full Game Coverage

"We don't want to undersell, we also don't want to oversell, what this four-game series with the Brewers means," Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said. "Every game's important for us, not only between now and the Deadline, but as we get beyond the Deadline, every game matters. And that's one of the things that we need to move forward with. Obviously, an 0-4 [series] changes the dynamic pretty significantly. We go 4-0, it changes the dynamic in a much more positive direction."

Milwaukee will send southpaw Brent Suter, who is starting in Chase Anderson's rotation spot while the right-hander is out injured, to the mound Monday, while Chad Kuhl gets the ball for the Bucs.

The Brewers are in a stretch in which they play 14 of 17 games on the road. Their only home games during this period was their three-game series against the Phillies over the weekend. At 24-18, the team is tied with the Dodgers for the second-best road record in the National League behind the Nationals.

"Especially with what's ahead of us with this 10-game road trip, a tough road trip, continuing that momentum is important for us. Getting some wins and feeling good about it, everybody is doing their job, that's what is going on," Brewers manager Craig Counsell said.

This marks the third series between the division rivals this season. The Pirates won the first, two games out of three, from May 5-7 in Pittsburgh. The teams split the four-game set in Milwaukee from June 19-22.

Three things to know about this game

• In two starts filling in for Anderson this season, Suter is 1-0 with a 1.46 ERA. He did not give up a run to the Pirates over four relief appearances, 5 1/3 innings, in 2016.

• Kuhl has already faced the Brewers twice this season. He saw them in an abbreviated outing on May 5 in Pittsburgh, surrendering no runs over three innings before a rain delay ended his outing. He also earned a win in Milwaukee on June 20, allowing two runs in five innings and tying his season-high for strikeouts with six.

• Suspended left fielder Starling Marte, whose rehab assignment ended Sunday, is expected to rejoin the Pirates and work out at PNC Park on Monday before being activated on Tuesday.

"He can't be in uniform and he can't be in the dugout or bullpen. He can be here and he can work out. He just can't be in uniform with the club when we're in our normal workout," Huntington said.

Tony Watson walked the tight rope in the 7th. Flop sweating like a whore in church and Hurdle didn't hook him. But he survived.

Polanco with a huge night. 4 hits and gunned a man at the plate. Bucs have gotten on a roll out of the all star break.
