The Milwaukee Brewers are still trying to overcome a miserable start to the season but they are playing solid baseball of late. The Brewers are 8-2 in their last 10 games, 21-22 on the road, and they are 19.5 games back in the NL Central. As a team the Brewers are hitting .249 with Gerrardo Parra hitting .309, Adam Lind hitting .296, and Ryan Braun hitting .272. The Brewers pitching staff has an ERA of 4.28 with the starters at 4.81 and the bullpen at 3.27. For game one in Los Angeles the Brewers start Jimmy Nelson who has allowed 98 hits and 51 earned runs while striking out 83 over 102 innings for a 6-8 record and a 4.50 ERA.
Los Angeles is 42-19 in their last 61 home games, 5-1 against a team with a losing record, and 4-0 in Bolsinger’s last four home starts against a team with a losing record. Milwaukee is 7-0 in their last eight road games, 9-2 in their last 11 games, and 7-15 in Nelson’s last 22 starts. Milwaukee is 5-2 in their last seven games against Los Angeles.
Fading Bolsinger of late has brought in some nice winners and I will continue to do that here taking the Brewers.
