The San Francisco Giants look to be unpleasant hosts when the Milwaukee Brewers come to town Monday.
The Milwaukee Brewers drive to reach .500 has slowed the past week and they need to regroup. The Brewers slowed further in Sunday’s 3-0 defeat on the road versus the Diamondbacks. Starter Matt Garza was charged with all three runs on seven hits and three free passes over 5.2 frames to fall to 5-11. The Brew Crew mustered four hits and walked four times with Martin Maldonado reaching base two times on a pair of bases on balls. Milwaukee sends veteran Kyle Lohse to the bump for his second start of the year against San Francisco. Lohse has struggled in 2015 with a 5-11 record and a 6.29 ERA in 20 starts.

The San Francisco Giants are hot and that means they are keeping the pressure on the Dodgers in the National League West. The Giants stayed hot as they squeezed past Oakland 4-3 on Sunday for their 10th win in eleven contests. Solid pitching and some early scoring carried the day with starter Tim Hudson allowing all three runs on seven hits through five frames before four relievers closed the door on the Athletics. SF racked up 12 hits and walked twice with Matt Duffy slugging a three run bomb in the first with Brandon Belt singling in a run. Christopher Heston toes the rubber for his first career start versus the Brewers on Monday. Heston has allowed just a single run over his last three outings covering 21.1 innings.
Milwaukee are 7-3 in their last 10 games as an underdog and are 9-4 in their last 13 road games while going 15-7 in their last 22 overall. San Francisco are 10-1 in their last 11 overall and are 10-1 in their last 11 games on grass and 8-1 in their last 9 games as a favorite. I’m not in love with the juice but I like the hot team…
