The San Diego Padres and Milwaukee Brewers will begin a three-game series on Monday.
The Padres have split their last six games and recently took two of three games from the San Francisco Giants. The Padres pitching staff has been absolutely lights out, holding opponents to three or less runs in five of their last six games. Offensively, Everth Cabrera is batting .329 and has four hits in his last two games. Taking the mound for the Padres will be Andrew Cashner, who is 2-1 on the season with a 1.27 ERA and has 27 strikeouts in 28.1 innings. Cashner is 2-0 with a 2.40 ERA in two career starts against the Brewers.

The Brewers have won four of their last five games and continue to be one of the hottest teams in baseball with a 14-5 record. Mark Reynolds and Ryan Braun have homered in back-to-back games. Pitching wise, the Brewers have allowed three or less runs in seven of their last 11 games. Wily Peralta will start on Monday, and he’s 2-0 this season with a 1.96 ERA and has 13 strikeouts in 18.1 innings of work. This game will be the first time Peralta has pitched against the Padres in his young career.
The Padres are 5-2 in Cashners last 7 starts and 1-4 in Cashners last 5 starts as a road underdog. The Brewers are 5-0 in Peraltas last 5 home starts and 6-2 in their last 8 during game 1 of a series. The Padres are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Milwaukee.
While Cashner and Peralta are both pitching extremely well this season, it's nearly impossible to pick against the Brewers with the way they've been playing. The Brewers playing at home just makes things even sweeter.
Take the Brewers for the cheap price.
