The Milwaukee Brewers have lost 13 of their last 14 games and are only three games above a .500 record. Blame the offense, blame the pitching, the Brewers are simply not a good baseball team right now. The Milwaukee Brewers have an ERA of 3.83, which is 19th in baseball, and they’ve lost 17 straight when allowing more than three runs. The Brewers have allowed 12 runs in the first two games of this series. Offensively, Ryan Braun has hit in seven of his last 10 games and Jonathan Lucroy has hit in nine of his last 10 games. Wily Peralta takes the hill, and he’s 15-10 with a 3.84 ERA and has 129 strikeouts in 171 innings. Peralta is 1-1 with a 2.42 ERA in four career starts against the Marlins.
The Marlins are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series and 5-0 in Cosarts last 5 starts overall. The Brewers are 4-0 in Peraltas last 4 starts during game 3 of a series and 1-4 in Peraltas last 5 starts overall. The Marlins are 5-14 in the last 19 meetings in Milwaukee.
Would you pick the Brewers right now? Yeah. Me neither.
