The Milwaukee Brewers look to snap a five-game losing streak. The Brewers have scored eight runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last eight games. The Brewers have lost six straight games when scoring three or less runs. Ryan Braun leads Milwaukee with 42 hits and 37 RBI while Adam Lind and Khris Davis have combined for 36 RBI.

The Diamondbacks are 16-35 in their last 51 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 games following an off day. The Brewers are 1-5 in their last 6 games following an off day and 3-11 in Nelsons last 14 starts. The Diamondbacks are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Milwaukee.
The Brewers have to win a game eventually, especially at home. It's not like the Diamondbacks are worldbeaters, so I'll take a chance on the home team in this spot.
