The Milwaukee Brewers could also use a win after losing five of their last eight games. The Brewers have scored six runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five straight games. The Milwaukee Brewers have lost eight of their last 10 games when scoring three or less runs. Travis Shaw leads the Brewers with 105 hits and 74 RBI while Domingo Santana and Orlando Arcia have combined for 199 hits and 94 RBI. Brent Suter gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 2.40 ERA and 37 strikeouts this season. Suter is 0-1 with a 2.53 ERA and eight strikeouts in his career against the Cardinals.
The Cardinals are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series, 8-20 in their last 28 vs. National League Central and 1-4 in their last 5 road games. The Brewers are 6-14 in their last 20 during game 2 of a series, 1-6 in their last 7 vs. National League Central and 10-4 in their last 14 home games. The Cardinals are 39-15 in the last 54 meetings in Milwaukee.
The Brewers may be going through a rough second half, but they continue to find ways to win at home. It also seems like it's only a matter of time before they get back on track and maybe Tuesday's performance is a start. Suter has also allowed just nine hits and one run in his last 13 innings of work. I like the Milwaukee Brewers to get the job done here against a pitcher in Weaver who has just eight innings under his belt this season.
