The Line: Milwaukee Brewers -118 / Los Angeles Angels +109 -- Over/Under: 8.5
The Milwaukee Brewers and Los Angeles Angels meet Tuesday in MLB action at Angel Stadium.
The Milwaukee Brewers look for a victory after winning seven of their last nine games. The Brewers have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their first 11 games. The Milwaukee Brewers are 7-2 this season when scoring more than two runs. Lorenzo Cain leads the Brewers with 14 hits and two RBI while Christian Yelich and Ryan Braun have combined for 22 hits and 25 RBI. Freddy Peralta gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 3.27 ERA and 14 strikeouts this season. This will be Peralta’s first career game against the Angels.
The Los Angeles Angels look for another win to build on their four-game winning streak. The Angels have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Angels are 4-1 this season when scoring more than three runs. Mike Trout leads the Angels with 11 hits and 12 RBI while David Fletcher and Albert Pujols have combined for 17 hits and four RBI. Matt Harvey gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA and six strikeouts this season. Harvey is 1-3 with a 6.39 ERA and 37 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 17-5 in their last 22 road games, 1-5 in their last 6 interleague road games and 5-1 in Peralta's last 6 starts during game 2 of a series. The Angels are 17-8 in their last 25 interleague home games and 9-2 in their last 11 home games. The Brewers are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings and the over is 3-0-2 in the last 5 meetings. The under is 21-8-3 in Angels last 32 interleague games. The under is 5-2-1 in Brewers last 8 overall.
Harvey hasn't been able to build on last season so far, as he's been rocked in two starts, has had trouble finding the strike zone and can't keep the ball in the park when he does. Peralta has been decent out of the gate this season, but he had an ERA over five on the road last year. I want to back the Angels with them finding their form, but I'm going to side with the over instead due to not being able to back Harvey on the hill. The Angels have found their offense as of late and Peralta can get tagged when he pitches on the road. I expect some fireworks in this contest.
