The Brewers are 5-2 in their last 7 road games and 3-7 in Andersons last 10 starts. The Giants are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series and 8-20 in Cains last 28 home starts. The Brewers are 1-6 in the last 7 meetings in San Francisco and 2-10 in the last 12 meetings overall.
Even though Cain hasn't pitched in a while due to being on the DL, the Giants are the better team overall and the lineup seems to produce in timely spots. Besides, the Brewers are bound to cool off, and it might as well come on the road where they're 11-16 on the season.
