The Milwaukee Brewers and Miami Marlins meet Tuesday in MLB action at Marlins Park.
The Milwaukee Brewers look to stay hot after winning seven of their last nine games. The Brewers have scored 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Milwaukee Brewers have won six of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 161 hits and 97 RBI while Lorenzo Cain and Mike Moustakas have combined for 251 hits and 118 RBI. Chase Anderson gets the ball, and he is 6-4 with a 4.58 ERA and 110 strikeouts this season. Anderson is 3-3 with a 4.06 ERA and 36 strikeouts in his career against the Marlins.
The Miami Marlins need a win after losing seven of their last 10 games. The Marlins have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Miami Marlins have won four of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Starlin Castro leads the Marlins with 152 hits and 76 RBI while Brian Anderson and Miguel Rojas have combined for 234 hits and 101 RBI. Elieser Hernandez gets the ball, and he is 3-5 with a 5.23 ERA and 71 strikeouts this season. This will be Hernandez’s second career game against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 8-2 in their last 10 during game 2 of a series, 1-5 in Anderson’s last 6 road starts and 1-4 in Anderson’s last 5 starts. The Marlins are 16-38 in their last 54 during game 2 of a series, 10-26 in their last 36 Tuesday games and 4-1 in Hernandez’s last 5 home starts. The Brewers are 1-4 in Anderson’s last 5 starts vs. Marlins. The over is 34-15-3 in the last 52 meetings. The over is 5-2 in Hernandez’s last 7 starts overall. The over is 3-1-1 in Andersons last 5 starts overall.
Anderson has allowed 35 hits and 23 earned runs in his last 32 innings, and he has a 5.88 ERA and .301 allowed batting average on the road. Hernandez has allowed 23 hits and 21 earned runs in his last 34 innings, and he has a 4.12 ERA and .217 allowed batting average at home. Anderson isn’t the pitcher I want to get behind on the road, but the Marlins are limping toward the finish line of the season and the Brewers need to pile up the wins to stay in the playoff race. The price isn’t great considering there’s no ace on the hill, but these are must win games for the Brewers.
