Starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood allowed six hits and two earned runs while striking out 11 over 7.0 innings to get the win and go to 7-3 on the season.

Colorado is 5-1 against the NL Central, 3-7 in their last 10 game two of a series, and 16-35 in their last 51 games against a left-handed starter. Milwaukee is 18-45 as an underdog, 2-8 against the NL West, and 1-5 in their last six road games. Milwaukee is 7-20 in their last 27 games in Colorado.
I am expecting a lot of runs here and I like the over.

Milwaukee Brewers vs. San Francisco Giants

The Milwaukee Brewers and the San Francisco Giants meet on Wednesday in Milwaukee for game two of their series. The Brewers are -115 favorites over the Giants with an over/under run total set at 8.
The Milwaukee Brewers jumped out to a big lead on Tuesday and hung on to get the win. Yuniesky Betancourt hit a grand slam home run, Carlos Gomez had three hits including a home run, and Norichika Aoki also homered as the Brewers scored 10 runs on 12 hits in all. On the mound starting pitcher Wily Peralta allowed seven hits and six runs, five of them earned while striking out on but lasting just four innings to not factor in the decision as Brandon Kintzler got the win, his second of the season, and Jim Henderson earned his second save.

For the season Lohse has allowed 11 hits and three earned runs while striking out seven over 13 innings for a 2.08 ERA.
The San Francisco Giants fell behind early on Tuesday and while they never quit they didn’t take full advantage of their chances and took the loss. Brandon Crawfor had two hits including a home run, Brandon Belt had three hits, and Angel Pagan and Pablo Sandoval both had two hits. On the mound starting pitcher Barry Zito was shelled allowing eight hits and nine runs while striking out five over 2.2 innings to take his first loss of the year and fall to 2-1. For Wednesday’s game San Francisco starts Ryan Vogelsong who hasn’t been the same pitcher we have seen over the past two years. For the season Vogelsong has allowed 17 hits and nine earned runs while striking out 11 over 11.1 innings for a 7.15 ERA.
Milwaukee is 21-9 as a favorite, 3-7 following a win, and 4-8 in their last 12 games. San Francisco is 35-17 in their last 52 overall, 15-6 in their last 21 games as a road underdog, and 4-1 in Vogelsong’s last five road starts.
Milwaukee got the big start but it was the Giants finishing strong and the Brewers holding on and I see that carrying over here as we get the defending world champs with an all star pitcher as a dog and I’m taking it.

San Francisco Giants -105 Milwaukee Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers are off to a slow start this season and despite battling for a full nine innings they came up short once again on Friday against the D-Backs. Jean Segura hit a home run, and Rickie Weeks and Aramis Ramirez each had hits as the Brewers scored just one run on seven hits. O the mound Kyle Lohse allowed five hits and a run while striking out five over six innings to not factor I the decision as Burke Bradenhop allowed a hit and two runs in just a third of an inning to take the loss, his first of the year.

Philadelphia Phillies vs. Milwaukee Brewers

The Philadelphia Phillies and the Milwaukee Brewers meet on Tuesday for game two of their series in Philadelphia.  The Phillies are -150 favorites over the Brewers with an over/under run total set at 7.5.

The Philadelphia Phillies had the big ninth inning comeback for the win on Monday but for their season it looks to be too late for a comeback. On Monday Ryan Howard had three hits including a home run, Chase Utley homered, and John Mayberry Jr. had two hits as the Phillies scored seven runs on eight hits in all. On the mound starter Roy Halladay allowed eight hits and six earned runs while striking out three over six innings to not factor in the decision as Joe Savery got his first win. For Tuesday game Philadelphia starts Cliff Lee who has great numbers especially for a pitcher who has gone 1-6 on the year. For the season Lee has allowed 107 hits and 46 earned runs while striking out 106 over 111.1 innings of work for a 3.72 ERA.

The Milwaukee Brewers let one get away on Monday as they snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. Carlos Gomez had two hits including a home run and Aramis Ramirez had two hits and Ryan Braun added a hit as the Brewers scored six runs on eight hits. On the mound Randy Wolf pitched well allowing five hits and two earned runs while striking out five over six innings as Francisco Rodriguez blew the save and took the loss allowing three hits and four runs retiring just two batters in the ninth inning. For Tuesday’s game Milwaukee starts Zack Greinke who was scratched from his last start after getting pounded in his prior start. For the season Greinke has allowed 117 hits and 46 earned runs while striking out 117 over 116 innings of work for a 3.57 ERA.

Philadelphia is 7-14 in their last 21 games overall, 9-20 in their last 29 home games, and 1-7 in Lee’s last eight starts. Milwaukee is 4-10 in their last 14 games as an underdog, 1-5 in their last six road games, and 5-0 in Greinke’s last five starts against the NL East. Milwaukee is 1-5 in the last six meetings of these two.

This looks to be one of those games where either starting pitcher gets a decision but I look for the Phillies to take this one.

Pick

Philadelphia Phillies -150 Milwaukee Brewers

Chicago White Sox vs. Milwaukee Brewers

The Chicago White Sox and the Milwaukee Brewers meet for game one of their interleague series on Chicago’s Southside.  The White Sox are -145 favorites over the Brewers with an over/under run total set at 7.5.

The Chicago White Sox have cooled off from their torrid run in May but they are still very much in the thick of the A.L. Central division race. The White Sox are 3-7 in their last 10 games, 17-20 at home this season, and they are a half of a game back in the standings. As a team the White Sox are hitting .254 with Paul Konerko hitting .354, Alejandro De Aza hitting .297, and Alex Rios hitting .287. The White Sox pitching staff has an ERA 4.00 with the starters at 4.11 and the bullpen at 3.77. For game one of the series Chicago starts Chris Sale who has been nothing short of sensational this season. For the year Sale has allowed 58 hits and 22 earned runs while striking out 82 over 80.1 innings of work for a 2.46 ERA.

The Milwaukee Brewers won the N.L. Central last season but they are going to need to make a major move if they hope to repeat this season. The Brewers are 5-5 in their last 10 games, 14-19 on the road this season, and 6.5 games back and in fourth place in the N.L. Central standings. As a team the Brewers are hitting .244 with Ryan Braun hitting .321, Aramis Ramirez hitting .263, and Corey Hart hitting .248. As a team the Brewers pitching staff has an ERA of 4.27 with the starters at 4.11 and the bullpen at 4.56. For game one against the Sox Milwaukee starts Zack Greinke who hasn’t lost in his last four starts. For the season Greinke has allowed 89 hits and 30 earned runs while striking out 95 over 87 innings of work for a 3.10 ERA.

Chicago is 6-2 in their last eight games following an off day, 2-6 in their last eight games overall, and 5-1 in Sale’s last six starts. Milwaukee is 3-7 in their last 10 games against the A.L. Central, 3-10 in their last 13 interleague road games, and 22-8 in Greinke’s last 30 starts. Milwaukee is 1-8 in the last nine meetings of these two.

The total is set at 7.5 but given these two pitchers the play is still the under.

The Kansas City Royals and the Milwaukee Brewers meet on Thursday for game three of their series in Kansas City.  The Brewers are -140 favorites over the Royals with an over/under run total set at 8.5.

The Kansas City Royals looked to be a lost cause on Wednesday but they battled back late and got the win in extra innings. Billy Butler, Jeff Francouer, Alcides Escobar, and Humberto Quintero all had two hits each as the Royals scored four runs on 10 hits. On the mound Jonathan Sanchez allowed seven hits and a run while striking out four to not factor in the decision as Tim Collins pitched the 11th inning to get the win.

Ryan Braun, Aramis Ramirez, and Norichika Aoki all had two hits each as the Brewers scored three runs on 13 hits in all. On the mound Randy Wolf allowed six hit s and a run over seven innings but John Axford blew the save and Kameron Loe took the loss when Jose Veras walked in his base runner. For Thursday’s game Milwaukee starts Shaun Marcum who has won his last three starts. For the season Marcum has allowed 66 hits and 29 earned runs while striking out 72 over 74.2 innings of work for a 3.50 ERA.

Milwaukee is 1-5 in their last six games in Kansas City.

I see this one being low scoring once again as both pitchers go deep into the game and my pick is on the under.
