The Milwaukee Brewers have scored 16 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 6 of their last 7 games. The Brewers have won 7 of their last 9 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 138 hits and 53 RBI, while Willy Adames and Andrew McCutchen have combined for 242 hits and 161 RBI. Eric Lauer gets the ball, and he is 10-7 with a 3.91 ERA and 138 strikeouts this season. Lauer is 3-4 with a 4.01 ERA and 45 strikeouts in his career against the Reds.

Eric Lauer hasn’t pitched in a couple of weeks, but he’s still been solid this year with a 3.91 ERA and 1.25 WHIP. Mike Minor has been a disaster this season with an ERA over 6, and he has a 6.22 ERA and .284 allowed batting average at home. The Milwaukee Brewers simply can’t afford to lose games like this if they’re going to sneak into the postseason. There are no excuses here. Give me the Brewers with the better pitcher.
