Offensively, Jean Segura leads Arizona with 133 hits, Paul Goldschmidt has 70 RBI and Jake Lamb has 23 home runs. Archie Bradley takes the hill, and he’s 4-7 with a 4.75 ERA and 80 strikeouts this season. This will be Bradley’s second career game against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 1-12 in their last 13 during game 3 of a series and 1-5 in Nelsons last 6 road starts. The Diamondbacks are 3-7 in their last 10 during game 3 of a series and 2-5 in Bradleys last 7 starts. The Brewers are 2-4 in the last 6 meetings in Arizona.
You guys know the drill with me; I don't back the Diamondbacks in any shape or form, as they continue to get rocked nightly, allowing four or more runs constantly. So, I'll gladly take the plus money and the Brewers. You just can't back the Diamondbacks in their current form.
