The Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers meet Monday in MLB action at American Family Field. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have scored 9 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 6 of their last 9 games. The Dodgers have won 11 straight games when scoring 4 or more runs. Freddie Freeman leads the Dodgers with 41 hits and 14 RBI, while James Outman and Mookie Betts have combined for 64 hits and 42 RBI. Tony Gonsolin gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 3.38 ERA and 4 strikeouts this season. Gonsolin is 2-0 with a 0.75 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Milwaukee Brewers have scored 12 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 5 of their last 10 games. The Brewers have won 7 of their last 10 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 31 hits and 14 RBI, while Willy Adames and Brian Anderson have combined for 58 hits and 40 RBI. Freddy Peralta gets the ball, and he is 3-2 with a 3.63 ERA and 41 strikeouts this season. Peralta is 1-1 with a 1.93 ERA and 16 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 5-2 in their last 7 Monday games and 88-40 in their last 128 overall. The Brewers are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series and 1-6 in their last 7 overall. The over is 10-4 in Dodgers last 14 overall. The under is 7-3-1 in Brewers last 11 overall. The Dodgers are 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are going to be given the benefit of the doubt, and Tony Gonsolin is a top level pitcher when feeling good. However, the Dodgers are coming off a late emotional win last night in San Diego and now have to travel for a quick turnaround. Freddy Peralta is no pushover and the Brewers are due for a bounce back win after a tough week. I'll take a shot with the Brewers at home, as this is a tough schedule spot for the Dodgers.
