The Miami Marlins look to end their series at the Milwaukee Brewers on a winning note on Sunday.
The surging Miami Marlins nearly squandered a big lead before holding on for a 7-5 victory at Miller Park on Saturday. Marlins starter Wei-Yin Chen picked up the win with three runs plated on four hits and two walks over 6.2 frames before Craig Breslow gave up a pair of runs without recording an out. Miami pounded out 14 hits and walked nine times with Giancarlo Stanton, Derek Dietrich, Marcell Ozuna and Adeiny Hechavarria smacking long balls. The Miami Marlins send Tom Koehler to the hill Sunday in search of his third consecutive victory. Koehler comes off of a 6-3 road win versus the Dodgers with all three runs plated (two earned) on three hits and four BB over five frames.

The Milwaukee Brewers have the ability to put up some runs and that tend continued Saturday but the work on the mound wasn’t as good as the hitting. Brewers starter Chase Anderson was charged for six runs (five earned) on nine hits and four bases on balls including a trio of long balls through 4.1 innings to absorb the loss. The Brew Crew mounted a seven hit, two walk attack that featured two run homer off the bat of Hernan Perez while Ramon Flores drove in two and scored. The Milwaukee Brewers are hoping Wily Peralta can notch back to back wins when he faces the Marlins on Sunday. Peralta knocked off Philadelphia 8-5 in his last outing with four runs plated (three earned) on seven hits in six innings.
The over is 6-2 in Miami’s last 8 overall and is 6-2 in their last 8 road games while going 6-2 in their last 8 on grass. The over is 6-2 in Milwaukee’s last 8 Sunday games and is 40-19-6 in their last 65 overall while going 40-19-6 in the Brewers last 65 on grass. The Marlins are 8-17 in the last 25 meetings in Milwaukee. I’d say the way both teams hit, the over wouldn’t be a bad way to go…
