Milwaukee Brewers vs. Cincinnati Reds. The MLB Pick for this contest is the Milwaukee Brewers. Due to a neck issue, OF Milwaukee  Jesse Winker is on the 10-day disabled list. The Milwaukee Brewers are ranked 26th in both runs scored and OPS (on-base plus slugging) after 56 games played. On the other hand, the Cincinnati club is ranked 13th in runs scored and 17th in OPS for the season. It is anticipated that the game would be high-scoring given these statistics. The Milwaukee Brewers will triumph with a score of 7-5, according to my final score prediction.
