Milwaukee will be cobbling together several bullpen guys for the majority of this game, thanks to some recent sour injury issues.
Milwaukee has some interesting hitters this year. Domingo Santana leads the way on 131 hits, 77 runs, 24 homers and 71 RBI, while Travis Shaw is sitting on 130 hits, 74 runs, 29 homers and 90 RBI.
Over on the Marlins’ side, they just finished up against the Phillies. Miami lost the first two games 9-8 and 8-1, then on Thursday made it a sweep with a 10-0 defeat.
Miami is sending out LHP Adam Conley on Friday. In his 93.0 innings and 6-7 record this year, Conley has a 5.23 ERA with 66 Ks and 35 BBs.
The Marlins have some solid hitters as well. Dee Gordon came into Thursday on 176 hits, 99 runs and 28 RBI while Marcel Ozuna managed 168 hits, 80 runs, 33 homers and 110 RBI. Gordon had one hit on Thursday; Ozuna sat out.
The Brewers are 2-6 in their last eight during game one of a series, and 5-16 in their last 21 games versus a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30. The under is 4-0 in the Brewers’ last four Friday games and 6-1 in the Brewers’ last seven games following an off day.
Meanwhile, the Marlins are 4-1 in their last five road games following a road trip of seven or more days and 4-1 in their last five Friday games. Miami is also 0-5 in their last five during game one of a series and 1-4 in Conley’s last five Friday starts.
Conley has been a little up and down as of late. After a quality start in DC (two earned; 6.0 innings), he’s given up seven earned on 13 hits over 8.2 innings in his last two starts. I think the Brewers have enough offensive juice to snag a few runs off Conley and put themselves in position to win. I’ll take Milwaukee.
