The Milwaukee Brewers need a win here that would snap a four-game losing streak. The Brewers have allowed 20 runs in this series and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Milwaukee Brewers have lost five straight games when allowing two or more runs. Offensively, Travis Shaw leads the Brewers with 111 hits and 75 RBI while Orlando Arcia and Domingo Santana have combined for 216 hits and 98 RBI. Zach Davies gets the ball, and he is 13-5 with a 4.18 ERA and 88 strikeouts this season. This will be Davies’ first career game against the Twins.
The Twins are 2-7 in their last 9 road games, 1-4 in their last 5 during game 4 of a series and 5-2 in Gibsons last 7 road starts. The Brewers are 5-2 in their last 7 Thursday games, 4-1 in Davies' last 5 Thursday starts and 15-5 in Davies' last 20 starts. The over is 19-7-5 in the last 31 meetings.
The Twins are worth a look with the heavy plus money given the form of both teams. However, Davies has allowed zero earned runs in three of his last four starts. Gibson has allowed three or more earned runs in each of his last four starts and has an ERA over five on the road. If there is a game for the Brewers to end their skid, it would be this one given the form of Davies.
