|Date & Time||Saturday July 20, 2019, 8:10 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Milwaukee Brewers +115 / Arizona Diamondbacks -140 -- Over/Under: 9
The Milwaukee Brewers and Arizona Diamondbacks meet Saturday in MLB action at Chase Field.
The Milwaukee Brewers look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Brewers have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Milwaukee Brewers have won four of their last five games when scoring four or more runs. Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 112 hits and 75 RBI while Lorenzo Cain and Mike Moustakas have combined for 188 hits and 90 RBI. Gio Gonzalez gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 3.19 ERA and 26 strikeouts this season. Gonzalez is 3-1 with a 2.93 ERA and 47 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Diamondbacks have scored 30 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last seven games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won seven 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. Zack Greinke gets the ball, and he is 10-4 with a 2.95 ERA and 114 strikeouts this season. Greinke is 1-4 with a 4.07 ERA and 42 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 11-4 in their last 15 during game 3 of a series, 5-2 in their last 7 Saturday games and 4-1 in Gonzalez's last 5 starts. The Diamondbacks are 9-2 in their last 11 during game 3 of a series, 6-2 in their last 8 Saturday games and 6-2 in Greinke's last 8 starts. The Brewers are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Greinke's last 5 home starts. The under is 7-0 in Gonzalez's last 7 starts overall.
Gonzalez was impressive the last time we saw him, but he hasn't pitched since May 27 due to arm fatigue, so who knows what you're going to get from him. Greinke has allowed zero runs in four of his last seven starts, and he has a 3.00 ERA and .240 allowed batting average with 53 strikeouts in 60 innings at home this season. Greinke has been one of the most consistent pitchers in the NL this season and he gives the Diamondbacks a clear pitching edge in this spot due to a long layoff for Gonzalez. I'll side with the Diamondbacks at home.
