The Milwaukee Brewers fell behind early on Saturday and never got back in the game as the Nationals crushed them. Ryan Braun hit a home run and Carlos Gomez and Aramis Ramirez had two hits each. Starting pitcher Mat Garza allowed five hits and five runs retiring just one batter to take the loss and fall to 6-7 for the season. For Sunday’s game the Brewers start Yovani Gallardo who has three no decisions and a loss in his last four starts. For the season Gallardo has allowed 11hits and 47 earned runs while striking out 86 over 115 innings for a 5-5 record and a 3.68 ERA.
Washington is 15-5 as a home favorite, 13-5 in their last 18 home games, and 4-1 in Gonzalez’s last five starts. Milwaukee is 2-6 as an underdog, 3-12 in their last 15 games, and 0-4 in Gallardo’s last four starts. Milwaukee is 2-5 in Gallardo’s last seven starts against Washington.
Gallardo is a battler but he looks to be up against it here so my play is on Washington.
