|Date & Time||Sunday May 31, 2015, 2:10 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Milwaukee Brewers -110 / Arizona Diamondbacks +100 --- Over/Under: 8.5
The Milwaukee Brewers look to avoid getting swept at Miller Park by the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The Arizona Diamondbacks are looking to reach .500 and have taken a few steps in that direction following a 7-3 win at Miller Park on Saturday. Both the arms and bats were on the same page with starter Jeremy Hellickson allowing two runs on five hits over six frames to even his record at 3-3. The Snakes pounded out 13 hits with Paul Goldschmidt leading the way with a pair of homers and four RBI’s while Nick Ahmed and Hellickson driving in runs and scoring. Chase Anderson looks to continue his strong work on the mound while getting some run support. Anderson has been a great option on the mound but is just 1-1 despite a 2.59 ERA because he gets no run or bullpen support.
The Milwaukee Brewers still have plenty of season remaining to turn things around but that turnaround has yet to materialize. The Brewers are in the midst of a seven game slide after a 7-3 defeat to visiting Arizona. The Brewers struggled in most areas with starter Kyle Lohse charged with all seven runs on eleven hits and a pair of free passes through 3.1 innings. The pen held their own but the bats couldn’t come back on their eight hit attack with Jean Segura going 2-4 with a pair of runs.With Wily Peralta out with an injury rookie Tyler Wagner makes his major league debut on Sunday. In nine starts at Double A Biloxi Wagner is 5-1 with a 2.01 ERA covering 53.2 innings.
The over is 6-2 in Arizona’s last 8 games as a favorite and the under is 38-18-3 in their last 59 Sunday games while the Diamondbacks are 17-35 in their last 52 road games. The over is 11-4-1 in Milwaukee’s last 16 home games and the Brewers are 8-20 in their last 28 home games and 25-55 in their last 80 overall. Anderson is a nice young pitcher but the catch 22 is he gets zero help…
