The Milwaukee Brewers need a win after losing six of their last seven games. The Brewers have scored 14 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last nine games. The Brewers have lost seven straight games when scoring three or less runs. Adam Lind leads Milwaukee with 62 hits and 34 RBI while Ryan Braun and Gerardo Parra have combined for 63 RBI. The Milwaukee Brewers have lost four straight home games. Mike Fiers takes the hill, and he’s 3-7 with a 4.50 ERA and 82 strikeouts this season. Fiers is 0-1 with a 6.00 ERA and four strikeouts in his career against the Mets.
The Mets are 7-19 in their last 26 road games vs. a right-handed starter and 1-6 in Nieses last 7 starts. The Brewers are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 1 of a series and 5-12 in Fiers' last 17 starts. The under is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings.
Both pitchers have been trash this season. However, the Mets have been brutal on the road and the Brewers are at home. If forced to pick this game, I'm siding with the home team here.
