The Philadelphia Phillies look to sweep the Milwaukee Brewers early Sunday afternoon.
The Philadelphia Phillies can get a game above a .500 record with a victory here. The Phillies have produced 20 runs in their last three games and are 4-1 this season when scoring more than three runs. The Philadelphia Phillies are already better than most expected, and it will be interesting to see how long this decent start can continue. Maikel Franco leads Philadelphia with 20 hits, Odubel Herrera has eight RBI and Ryan Howard has four home runs. Jerad Eickhoff gets the ball, and he’s 1-2 with a 1.89 ERA and 21 strikeouts this season. This is Eickhoff’s first career game against the Brewers.

The Milwaukee Brewers could use a win here after losing six of their last eight games. The Brewers have allowed 15 runs in this series and five or more runs in eight straight games. It’s impossible to win games when the Milwaukee Brewers are allowing an average of close to six runs per game. Offensively, Ryan Braun leads Milwaukee with 22 hits, Chris Carter has 15 RBI and Scooter Gennett has three home runs. Wily Peralta takes the hill, and he’s 0-3 with a 8.35 ERA and 13 strikeouts this season. Peralta is 2-2 with a 6.17 ERA and 15 strikeouts in his career against the Phillies.
The Phillies are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 3 of a series and 1-4 in Eickhoffs last 5 road starts. The Brewers are 5-13 in their last 18 home games and 1-5 in Peraltas last 6 starts. The Phillies are 2-7 in the last 9 meetings.
We're getting plus money with a team that's crushed the other in this series. Not to mention the Brewers haven't allowed less than five runs since April 15. I'll take the Phillies here for the sweep.
