The Oakland Athletics butt heads with the Milwaukee Brewers again on Wednesday night.
The Oakland Athletics are a team that is not expected to do a lot but still can not be overlooked. The Athletics saw a late rally go for naught in a 5-4 defeat at Miller Park on Tuesday. A’s starter Sean Manaea fell to 2-4 with all five runs plated on six hits including two homers over seven frames. Oakland was held to five hits and three bases on balls with Billy Butler going deep and driving in three while Jed Lowrie scored twice. Oakland turns to Jesse Hahn for his first career start versus the Brewers Wednesday. Hahn has been good and bad so far and it was the latter in a 12-2 loss at Houston with seven runs scoring on six hits over 2/3 of an inning.

The Milwaukee Brewers don’t have the talent to challenge in the National League Central but a .500 record isn’t impossible. The Brewers took a step in the right direction with Tuesday’s victory where the pen nearly cost them. Brew Crew starter Zach Davies allowed a pair of runs on two hits and three free passes through seven innings to pick up the win before Jeremy Jeffress picked up the save despite giving up two runs in the 9th. Milwaukee did their damage on five hits and a pair of walks with Chis Carter smacking two long balls and knocking in all five runs while Jonathan Lucroy and scored two times. Chase Anderson toes the rubber versus the visiting Athletics in Wednesday action. Anderson has given up a run in each of his last two starts on eight hits in 10.2 frames.
The over is 17-5-1 in Oakland’s last 23 road games and the Athletics are 5-16 in their last 21 road games while going 6-13 in their last 19 Wednesday games. The over is 17-6-3 in Milwaukee’s last 26 interleague games and the Brewers are 7-3 in their last 10 Wednesday games while going 2-7 in Anderson’s last 9 starts. Neither hurler makes me confident but I’ll go home team at the price…
