The Milwaukee Brewers and the San Diego Padres meet in MLB action from Petco Park on Wednesday.
The Milwaukee Brewers will be looking to add another one to the win column after a 6-0 win over the Padres on Tuesday. Avisail Garcia leads the Brewers with 3 home runs as well as 10 RBIs while Travis Shaw has 3 homers of his own with a team-leading 15 RBIs this season. Luis Urias has a .365 OBP with 3 doubles while Omar Narvaez leads the Brewers with 17 hits on the year. Adrian Houser is expected to get the nod on the mound here and is 1-2 with a 3.14 ERA and 10 strikeouts this season. This will be Houser’s second career start against the Padres.
The San Diego Padres will look to rebound after being shut out in Tuesday’s matchup. Eric Hosmer leads the Padres with a .319 batting average, 22 hits, 3 home runs and 14 RBIs while Manny Machado, Trent Grisham and Wil Myers all have 3 home runs as well with Myers leading the Padres with a .388 OBP this season. Hosmer and Jake Cronenworth share San Diego’s team-high with 5 doubles as well this season. Dinelson Lamet is expected to make his season debut here after going 3-1 with a 2.09 ERA and 93 strikeouts last season. In his career, Lamet is 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA and 26 strikeouts against Milwaukee.
Milwaukee is 5-1 in their last 6 road games and 2-5 in their last 7 games against the NL West while the under is 22-6-3 in their last 31 road games against a right-handed starter. San Diego is 2-5 in their last 7 games overall and 1-4 in their last 5 home games while the under is 7-0 in their last 7 games as a home favorite. The under is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.
I get the case that could be made on both sides here as Houser is a solid arm and Lamet deals a ton of heat, but I think this game follows suit of Tuesday’s matchup and hits the under here. I could see this shaping up to being a pitcher’s duel and could easily see a game that comes in well under the total.
