The Milwaukee Brewers look to win back-to-back games for just the third time this season. The Brewers pitching staff has let them down all season, as Milwaukee has allowed five or more runs in 13 of their last 14 games. The Milwaukee Brewers have allowed less than five runs in just seven of their 24 games. Offensively, Ryan Braun leads Milwaukee with 29 hits, Chris Carter has 18 RBI and Domingo Santana has three home runs. Jimmy Nelson takes the hill, and he’s 3-2 with a 3.16 ERA and 25 strikeouts this season. This will be Nelson’s first career game against the Angels.
The Angels are 4-1 in their last 5 Monday games and 5-1 in Weavers last 6 starts. The Brewers are 2-5 in their last 7 vs. American League West and 6-2 in Nelsons last 8 home starts. The Angels are 6-0 in the last 6 meetings in Milwaukee and 4-0 in the last 4 meetings overall.
The Angels are starting to put up big numbers offensively with their impressive lineup, and the Brewers haven't gone many games without giving up big runs. Kind of like the over in this spot with the way both clubs are playing.
