The Milwaukee Brewers and the Cincinnati Reds will match up on the MLB diamond to continue their series Wednesday.
In the Tuesday opener of this set, the Brewers trailed early but were able to turn a 2-0 deficit into a 4-2 victory, despite getting out-hit 8-7.
For Wednesday’s game, the Brewers will send out Jordan Lyles to start. Across his 136.0 innings and 11-8 mark this year, Lyles has a 4.17 ERA with 140 Ks and 53 BBs.
Over on the Reds’ side, they’re going with Tyler Mahle in the start Wednesday. Over 122.1 innings and a 2-11 record, Mahle has a 4.93 ERA with 123 Ks and 31 BBs.
The Brewers are 8-1 in the last nine Wednesday games and 16-5 in their last 21 in game two of a series. Milwaukee is 5-0 in Lyles’ last five road starts and 7-0 in his last seven starts.
Meanwhile, the Reds are 4-1 in their last five Wednesday games and 5-1 in Mahle’s last six Wednesday starts. Cincinnati is 1-5 in Mahle’s last six starts in game two of a series and 0-4 in his last four home starts.
Lyles is on a solid run over his last six starts, giving up two earned just once, and a total of six earned over that stretch. He’s 4-0 in those six outings.
As for Mahle, he had a quality start at Wrigley but before that had coughed up nine earned in 7.2 innings. Doesn’t breed much confidence, so I’m going Brewers here.
