The Milwaukee Brewers continue their series against the Atlanta Braves on Thursday night after an extra innings marathon at Turner Field last night.
The Brewers look to add another to the win column on the road against the Braves on Thursday night as they will send Wily Peralta to the mound and with a win the Brew Crew would et just their ninth win on the road this season and 21st overall. The Brewers do have some nice pieces led by Ryan Braun but overall they are a very weak side and shouldn’t be much a factor in the National League playoff picture but luckily for them they are in a series with the Braves who are even worse and have one of the least imposing lineups in the league. The Braves will send Matt Wisler to the mound who is 2-3 with a 2.93 ERA that is miles better than Peralta’s 2-5 mark that is accompanied by a 6.99 ERA.
The Braves will look to get back in the win column and earn just their 13th of the season as things haven’t been great for the Georgia dwellers as they are expected to finish at or near the bottom of the league standings this season. Atlanta does have Freddie Freeman who remains one of the best hitters in the game but without a ton of support he can’t really contribute a whole lot and as such his value is starting to decline. Atlanta will look to get to Peralta again as he has been dreadful and they send a pretty solid rebuttal as Wisler has been pretty solid despite his record and will look to even things up with a big outing here.
The Brewers are 1-4 in their last five road games, 1-8 in their last nine Thursday games, and 3-8 in Peralta’s last 11 games while the Braves are 0-7 in their last seven home games against a team with a losing record, 2-6 in Wisler’s last eight starts, and 26-63 in their last 89 overall. Milwaukee is the better team overall here but Peralta is on auto fade and after a chance last night I think Atlanta gets in the win column on Thursday.
