The Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers play game two of their four-game series Tuesday.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look to stay hot after winning five of their last seven games. The Dodgers have allowed eight runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last eight games. The Dodgers have won five of their last seven games when allowing three or less runs. Offensively, Adrian Gonzalez leads LA with 34 hits and 20 RBI while Howie Kendrick and Joc Pederson have combined for 31 RBI. The Los Angeles Dodgers have lost five of their last seven games on the road. Zack Greinke gets the nod, and he’s 4-0 with a 1.93 ERA and 27 strikeouts this season. Greinke is 0-2 with a 4.76 ERA and 15 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Milwaukee Brewers look for a win after winning four of their last five games. The Brewers have allowed seven runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five straight games. The Brewers have won five of their last six games when allowing three or less runs. Offensively, Jean Segura and Adam Lind have combined for 56 hits and 23 RBI while Ryan Braun has 23 RBI. The Milwaukee Brewers have split their last six games on their home field. Matt Garza takes the hill, and he’s 2-3 with a 4.60 ERA and 19 strikeouts this season. This will be Garza’s first career game against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 3-8 in their last 11 road games and 41-19 in Greinkes last 60 starts. The Brewers are 7-23 in their last 30 games as an underdog and 1-4 in Garzas last 5 starts during game 2 of a series. The Dodgers are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings.
I like the value we're getting here with the Brewers, a team that may have new life with a coaching change. The Dodgers haven't been great on the road, either. Give me the plus money.
