The Milwaukee Brewers welcome the Pittsburgh Pirates for three games at Miller Park this weekend. In what was once a competitive race in the NL Central between the Brewers, Cardinals and Pirates, the poor play of Pittsburgh in recent weeks has dropped them six games out of first and the Brewers will look to capitalize on the Pirates’ woes. The season average for Brewers tickets at Miller Park is $92.04 on the secondary market, but each game of the series will be well below that price. The series as a whole is 42% below the season average This weekend’s series will be the penultimate series between the two teams on the Brewers schedule. Several promotional items will also be given to fans over the weekend series.
