The Milwaukee Brewers look for a win after winning five of their last eight games. The Brewers have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Brewers have won five straight games when scoring more than three runs. Adam Lind leads Milwaukee with 59 hits and 33 RBI while Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez have combined for 65 RBI. The Milwaukee Brewers have split their last six home games. Taylor Jungmann takes the hill, and he’s 1-0 with a 1.29 ERA and five strikeouts this season. This will be Jungmann’s first career game against the Nationals.
The Nationals are 27-9 in their last 36 during game 4 of a series and 5-2 in Scherzers last 7 starts. The Brewers are 17-35 in their last 52 during game 4 of a series and 5-1 in their last 6 games as an underdog. The Nationals are 9-20 in the last 29 meetings in Milwaukee.
Do we trust the Nats at all with all of their injuries and the lack of consistent run support? I don't. I'm going with the Brewers as more of a fade from the Nationals.
