The San Diego Padres look for consistency after splitting their last 10 games. The Padres have scored 11 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in six of their last 11 games. The San Diego Padres offense has also been hot in the second half, and they’ve won four of their last five games when scoring more than three runs. Wil Myers leads San Diego with 108 hits, Alexei Ramirez has 35 RBI and Derek Norris has 12 home runs. Luis Perdomo takes the hill, and he’s 5-4 with a 6.89 ERA and 65 strikeouts this season. This will be Perdomo’s second career game against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 5-0 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 8-3 in Davies' last 11 starts. The Padres are 4-10 in their last 14 during game 2 of a series and 4-1 in Perdomos last 5 starts. The under is 5-1-1 in the last 7 meetings.
Davies is a Milwaukee pitcher you can trust, as he's allowed just three earned runs in his last 19.2 innings of work and the Brewers have won seven of his last 10 outings. Meanwhile, Perdomo has allowed three or more runs in nine of his last 10 games. Give me the Brewers to get this victory.
