The Milwaukee Brewers could use a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Brewers have allowed eight runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 13 games. The Milwaukee Brewers have an ERA of 5.42 and have lost 10 of their last 16 games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Ryan Braun leads Milwaukee with 47 hits, Chris Carter has 22 RBI and Aaron Hill has four home runs. Junior Guerra takes the hill, and he’s 1-0 with a 6.00 ERA and nine strikeouts this season. This will be Guerra’s first career game against the Padres.
The Padres are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 2 of a series and 1-6 in their last 7 vs. a team with a losing record. The Brewers are 6-13 in their last 19 during game 2 of a series and 13-28 in their last 41 vs. National League West. The under is 12-5-1 in the last 18 meetings.
The Padres pitching staff has been dealing recently, and the Brewers continue to be lousy and struggle big time on both ends of the plate. I like the hot Padres to win yet another game.
