The San Diego Padres and Milwaukee Brewers begin a four-game series Monday night.
The San Diego Padres look to remain hot after winning six of their last eight games. The Padres have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Padres have won nine straight games when scoring more than three runs. Matt Kemp leads San Diego with 103 hits and 57 RBI while Justin Upton and Derek Norris have combined for 108 RBI. The San Diego Padres have won six of their last eight road games. Tyson Ross gets the nod, and he’s 7-8 with a 3.38 ERA and 137 strikeouts this season. Ross is 2-1 with a 3.44 ERA and 15 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.

The Milwaukee Brewers need a win to snap a five-game losing streak. The Brewers have scored six runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five straight games. The Brewers have lost eight straight games when scoring three or less runs. Ryan Braun leads Milwaukee with 97 hits and 63 RBI while Adam Lind and Jean Segura have combined for 89 RBI. The Milwaukee Brewers have lost five straight home games. Wily Peralta takes the hill, and he’s 2-5 with a 3.90 ERA and 38 strikeouts this season. This will be Peralta’s second career game against the Padres.
The Padres are 3-7 in their last 10 games following a loss and 6-2 in Ross' last 8 starts. The Brewers are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 1 of a series and 4-1 in Peraltas last 5 starts. The under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
The Padres are playing very well in the second half of the season and actually think there's still time for them to can sneak into a playoff spot. The Brewers are back to sneaking it up and have a pitcher on the hill who has allowed eight homers in his last 10 starts. I like the road team here.
