|Date & Time||Wednesday April 10, 2019, 10:07 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Milwaukee Brewers -119 / Los Angeles Angels +110 -- Over/Under: 8.5
The Milwaukee Brewers and Los Angeles Angels meet Wednesday in MLB action at Angel Stadium.
The Milwaukee Brewers could use a win here after losing three of their last four games. The Brewers have allowed 18 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in four of their last five games. The Milwaukee Brewers have split their last eight games when allowing more than two runs. Offensively, Lorenzo Cain leads the Brewers with 16 hits and three RBI while Christian Yelich and Yasmani Grandal have combined for 28 hits and 18 RBI. Brandon Woodruff gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 6.00 ERA and 13 strikeouts this season. This will be Woodruff’s first career game against the Angels.
The Los Angeles Angels look for another victory to get a game above a .500 record. The Angels have scored 23 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last six games. The Los Angeles Angels are 6-2 this season when scoring three or more runs. Mike Trout leads the Angels with 13 hits and 12 RBI while Jonathan Lucroy and Brian Goodwin have combined for 21 hits and nine RBI. Felix Pena gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA and 10 strikeouts this season. Pena is 0-0 with a 1.93 ERA and five strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 15-2 in their last 17 during game 3 of a series, 10-3 in their last 13 road games and 6-1 in Woodruff's last 7 starts. The Angels are 4-0 in their last 4 home games, 5-2 in their last 7 Wednesday games and 4-1 in Pena's last 5 home starts. The Brewers are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings and the over is 3-1-2 in the last 6 meetings. The under is 12-5 in Pena's last 17 starts overall. The under is 6-2-1 in Brewers last 9 overall.
Woodruff has been a little shaky in his first two games, allowing six earned runs in nine innings and having a hard time keeping the ball out of the air. Pena has allowed five earned runs in 8.1 innings and was awful last season when pitching at Angel Stadium, which includes a 5.06 ERA and a .255 batting average. Still, I'm going to back the Angels. The Los Angeles Angels have found their offense during this winning streak and are playing with a little pep in their step. The at bats have improved and the confidence has trickled down across the board. I like the value of the plus money and the home team.
