|Date & Time||Friday July 19, 2019, 9:40 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Milwaukee Brewers -132 / Arizona Diamondbacks +110 -- Over/Under: 10
The Milwaukee Brewers and Arizona Diamondbacks meet Friday in MLB action at Chase Field.
The Milwaukee Brewers look for another win after winning four of their last six games. The Brewers have scored 23 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Milwaukee Brewers have won four straight games when scoring four or more runs. Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 110 hits and 73 RBI while Lorenzo Cain and Mike Moustakas have combined for 186 hits and 88 RBI. Jhoulys Chacin gets the ball, and he is 3-9 with a 5.18 ERA and 73 strikeouts this season. Chacin is 6-4 with a 3.17 ERA and 92 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Diamondbacks have scored 29 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in three of their last six games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won six straight games when scoring four or more runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 118 hits and 58 RBI while Eduardo Escobar and Adam Jones have combined for 199 hits and 119 RBI. Taylor Clarke gets the ball, and he is 2-3 with a 6.21 ERA and 32 strikeouts this season. This will be Clarke’s first career game against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 1-4 in their last 5 Friday games, 0-8 in Chacins last 8 road starts and 1-8 in Chacins last 9 starts. The Diamondbacks are 2-8 in their last 10 during game 2 of a series, 6-2 in their last 8 games on grass and 6-2 in their last 8 overall. The Brewers are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings and the over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Arizona. The over is 4-0-1 in Clarkes last 5 starts overall. The under is 14-3 in Chacins last 17 road starts.
The Milwaukee Brewers have won just two games since May with Chacin on the mound, and he's allowing a 6.38 ERA and .292 batting average on the road this season. Clarke has allowed 32 hits and 20 earned runs in his last 24.2 innings, and he's fresh off the IL with back inflammation. I'm not thrilled with this pitching matchup and both offenses have the ability to crush the ball in this friendly park. I'm going to side with the over and hope for the best.
