The Milwaukee Brewers invade Progressive Field for an interleague bout with the Cleveland Indians.
The Milwaukee Brewers are looking to finish the season strong but they are tough to get a read on. The Brewers have dropped back to back contests after a 9-5 defeat at Washington on Sunday. Starter Matt Garza was charged with seven runs on eight hits and six free passes over 4.2 frames to fall to 6-14. The Brew Crew logged ten hits with Jonathan Lucroy smacking a two run homer while Scooter Gennett and Khris Davis went solo. Wily Peralta gets the ball Tuesday for his first career start against the Indians. Peralta struggled last time out in an 8-7 win versus Miami with six runs plated on nine hits in five frames.
The Cleveland Indians are still within reach of .500 if they can remain consistent. The Indians let one get away in a 2-1 defeat at Wrigley Field on Monday afternoon. Starter Corey Kluber was at his best with a run allowed on four hits through 7.2 inning while striking out eleven. Zach McAllister took the loss in the bottom of the 9th when Kris Bryant slammed a walk off bomb. The offense never got going against Jon Lester with six hits and a base on balls that produced a Carlos Santana RBI single that scored pinch runner Abraham Almonte. Josh Tomlin gets his third start of the season and first ever against the Brewers on Tuesday. Tomlin was outstanding in a 3-2 win at the Yankees with one run scored on two hits over seven innings.

The over is 6-2-1 in Milwaukee’s last 9 interleague games with the Brewers going 3-7 in their last 10 interleague games while the under is 6-1-1 in Peralta’s last 8 Tuesday starts. Cleveland are 1-7 in Tomlin’s last 8 starts and are 1-7 in Tomlin’s last 8 starts on grass while the over is 7-1 in Tomlin’s last 8 home starts. Milwaukee are 8-1 in the last 9 meetings. I can see this going either way so I’ll take the better odds and probably watch because the Brewers are horrendous…
