The Milwaukee Brewers and the New York Mets meet Wednesday in MLB action from Citi Field. This will be the final installment in a three-game series between these teams this week, and the second in a doubleheader. The Mets took a two-run win on Monday, then in the Tuesday game we had a rainout. That one will be made up prior to this finale. Check back all season long for free MLB picks at Sports Chat Place.
Milwaukee had a brief lead in the Monday opener, but ended up squandering it in a 4-2 defeat. In that one, starting pitcher Brandon Woodruff managed 6.1 innings with four earned on four hits and a walk.
For the starter job in the Wednesday game two, the Brewers will send out Brett Anderson. Over his 48.0 innings this year Anderson has 55 hits, 28 runs (25 earned), seven homers allowed, 15 walks, 31 Ks and a 4.69 ERA.
Over on the Mets’ side, they were able to post three runs in the seventh inning on the way to the win Monday. New York starter Tylor Megill lasted 5.0 frames with two hits, one earned, two walks and seven Ks.

For the Wednesday matchup, New York hasn’t announced a starter yet but we’ll update when that info is available.
The Brewers are 18-6 in their last 24 in game three of a series and 19-7 in their last 26 with the total set at 7.0-8.5. Milwaukee is 5-11 in their last 16 road games with a total of 9.0-10.5 and the under is 3-1-1 in their last five Wednesday games.
Meanwhile, the Mets are 4-1 in their last five Wednesday games and 19-7 in their last 26 at home. New York is 1-4 in their last five in game three of a series and the over is 21-4-1 in their last 26 Wednesday games.
PICK: I’m probably going to stick with the Mets in this game two. Anderson has pitched just 1.1 innings since June 15, posting a loss with three earned on five hits versus the Diamondbacks. Over his last seven games Anderson has an 0-3 mark with a 5.53 ERA and 17 earned runs in 27.2 innings. I like him to do moderately well here, but the Mets should have some chances if they get their bats working.
