    Pirates‘ loss to Milwaukee.Mike Moustakas and Manny Piña each hit a two-run homer in the third inning , Jonathan Schoop went deep in the seventh and the Brewers beat the Pirates 7-4 on Sunday.The Brewers rocked Archer (4-7) for six runs and six hits in the third, when two close calls in the outfield started the trouble for Pittsburgh.“I didn’t execute,” Archer said. “Five consecutive hits. I didn’t throw the ball where I wanted to, and they capitalized on every single one. One or two mistakes, that’s OK. A six-run inning is inexcusable.”A pair of fine defensive efforts by the Pirates came up short and set the stage for the Brewers’ big inning.Right fielder Gregory Polanco had the ball pop out of his glove on a long sacrifice fly by Jesus Aguilar. Center fielder Starling Marte raced and dove for Travis Shaw’s sinking liner, but the ball trickled free for a double. Ryan Braun followed with an RBI single.“There are tipping points in the game every day,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. “Those were a couple of them, for sure.”Still, he praised the defensive effort.“The one that cracked my heart a little bit was Marte laying out in center field, catching the ball, but it rolled out of his glove,” Hurdle said. “He gave his best effort. It was everything you want to see from a guy who’s won a Gold Glove.”Even Brewers manager Craig Counsell tipped his cap to Marte.“He made a great attempt to make a great play,” Counsell said. “Travis hit a ball hard, and Marte made a great effort.”Schoop hit a solo shot in the seventh off Nick Kingham Matt Harvey Jersey , recalled Saturday from Triple-A Indianapolis.Chase Anderson (9-7) cruised through the first four innings for Milwaukee. He allowed Adeiny Hechavarria’s two-out RBI double in the fifth, then fell apart in the sixth.Adam Frazier, who hit a three-run homer in the Pirates’ 9-1 win Saturday night, teed off on Anderson for a two-run shot and Polanco followed with a solo drive that pulled the Pirates to 6-4. A single by Francisco Cervelli chased Anderson with nobody out and brought on Josh Hader.Corey Dickerson grounded to second baseman Schoop, who tossed to shortstop Orlando Arcia at second. Cervelli slid into Arcia as he made the relay throw to first. Second base umpire D.J. Reyburn called Cervelli out for interference and gave the Brewers a double play. Elias Diaz grounded out to end the inning.Hader followed up with a 1-2-3 seventh, and Joakim Soria worked around two infield throwing errors in the eighth. Jeremy Jeffress, who blew a save Friday night, pitched the ninth for his seventh save.Archer, who exited his previous start against Atlanta after four innings with left leg discomfort, walked two and struck out five in his second career start against Milwaukee. His first, a 2-1 victory, came as a member of the Tampa Bay Rays last August.TRAINER’S ROOMPirates: INF Josh Harrison wasn’t going to play in a precautionary move, but he did pinch-hit in the fifth. He’s been dealing with a left hamstring issue and left Saturday night’s game in the eighth after hustling from first on a double by Kevin Newman. “Everything was fine up to that point,” Harrison said. Asked if a trip to the disabled list was possible Scott Schebler Jersey , he said: “I don’t plan on it.”Brewers: In the seventh, Pirates reliever Kyle Crick hit Shaw with a pitch just above the right knee. After a brief delay, Shaw trotted down to first. He had a huge red mark on his thigh after the game, but said he’d be ready to go Tuesday.IT’S A FIRSTThe victory gave the Brewers their first series win against Pittsburgh this season. Milwaukee improved to 4-9 vs. the Pirates overall with two three-game series remaining between the NL Central rivalsNO COMPLAINT FROM HURDLECervelli aimed for Arcia instead of the bag while trying to break up the double play. After a slight delay, Reyburn signaled Cervelli out for interference.“It’s a book rule,” Hurdle said. “If he doesn’t call it, they’re going to review it and get the call in New York. You have to make an attempt to get to the bag. It’s a rule. Unfortunately, we didn’t make an attempt to get to the bag on the slide.”RED HOTFrazier is batting .354 (29 for 82) with 11 doubles, four homers, 17 RBIs and a 1.034 OPS in 26 games since being recalled on July 25. His seventh home run of the season was his fourth in seven games against the Brewers dating to last September. During that span, he’s batting .429 (12 for 28) with 12 RBIs vs. Milwaukee.UP NEXTPirates: RHP Ivan Nova (7-8, 4.20 ERA) pitches against RHP Jack Flaherty (7-6, 2.97) and the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday in the opener of a three-game road series.Brewers: RHP Junior Guerra (6-8, 3.72) makes his fourth start this season against Cincinnati on Tuesday as the Brewers begin a six-game road trip.

Why the Red Sox can pay on the MLB linesBoston will be guarding against a potential letdown here in a possible playoff preview with ace Chris Sale (12-4, 1.92 ERA) on the mound. The 29-year-old went just three innings in his last outing on Sunday versus the New York Mets, allowing one hit with no walks and one strikeout on 42 pitches. The Red Sox are trying to squeeze a couple more starts out of Sale before the end of the regular season, and he is reportedly hoping to throw 65 pitches at Cleveland. If they can get five innings from the southpaw, they will have a shot to win. Why the Indians can pay on the MLB linesThe Indians will send their AL Cy Young candidate Trevor Bauer (12-6, 2.22 ERA) to the hill opposite Sale, and he will be coming off the disabled list. The 27-year-old suffered a lower leg fracture in mid-August and is only expected to throw a couple innings, with Shane Bieber (10-4, 4.50 ERA) relieving him and likely pitching a majority of the game for Cleveland.Like Boston with Sale, Cleveland wants Bauer to simply see some game action in preparation for the playoffs George Foster Jersey , as his last start took place on August 11. He is 5-0 in his last eight outings, while Bieber has split his previous four. Smart betting pickThese teams do not have much to play for in this spot, as they wouldn’t meet in the postseason until the AL Championship Series if both advance that far. That said, each of the starting pitchers will be limited, so do not expect them to play a major role in determining the final outcome.The over is 3-1-1 in the past five meetings, though, according to the OddsShark MLB Database, and the best bet is that trend continuing.MLB betting trendsThe total has gone over in four of Boston’s last six games on the road.Boston is 7-3 in its last 10 games.Cleveland is 11-4 in its last 15 games when playing at home against Boston.All MLB odds and betting trends according to Bleacher Report’s official odds partner, OddsShark.
