For Game 3, the Brewers will be going with LHP Wade Miley. Across 80.2 innings and a 5-2 record this year, Miley has a 2.57 ERA with 50 Ks.
In this Division Series so far, both Ryan Braun and Mike Moustakas lead the Brew Crew with three hits. Both players have plated a run, and Moustakas also has a double with two RBI.
Over on the Rockies’ side, they’re sending out German Marquez in Game 3. Over 196.0 innings and a 14-11 mark this season, Marquez has a 3.77 ERA with 230 Ks.
The top hitter for the Rockies in the postseason so far is Gerardo Parra, who has four hits with a run. Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado are each sitting on three hits for Colorado.
The Brewers are 5-0 in their last five road games and 4-0 in their last four in game three of a series. Milwaukee is 6-1 in their last seven Sunday games and 22-6 in their last 28 overall.
Meanwhile, the Rockies are 5-1 in their last six in game three of a series and 8-2 in their last 10 Sunday games. Colorado is 0-4 in their last four playoff home games and 4-0 in Marquez’s last four home starts.
Miley isn’t the flashiest pitcher in the world, but he’s deceptively reliable. Across 16 regular-season starts, he didn’t allow more than three earned in a game, which is pretty darn impressive when you think about it.
As for Marquez, he gave up four earned in 4.2 innings in the Monday game but does have seven straight quality starts at home since the beginning of July. This should be a fun matchup but all things considered I have to stick with the surging Brewers on a value pick.
