Minnesota Twins -127 / Milwaukee Brewers +117 O/U: 9.5
The Milwaukee Brewers and the Minnesota Twins will meet up on the MLB diamond to finish their quick two-game set on Tuesday.
In the opener on Monday, the Brewers scored twice in the eighth and were able to eke out a 5-4 win despite getting out-hit 10-6.
For Tuesday’s game, the Brewers will be sending out Zach Davies in the start. Over his 55.2 innings and 5-0 mark this year, Davies had a 2.43 ERA with 38 Ks and 17 BBs.
Milwaukee mustered six hits in the Monday win, and the two-run eighth inning put them over the top. The Brewers’ Orlando Arcia led the way on a two-run homer and a double, producing two runs and three RBI.
Over on the Twins’ side, they’re going with Martin Perez on Tuesday. In his 58.0 innings and 7-1 record so far, Perez has a 2.95 ERA with 56 Ks and 26 BBs.
Minnesota put up 10 hits in the loss Monday, and spread them out pretty well despite not being able to cash in on defense. The lone Twins hitter with more than one knock was Max Kepler, who went 2-for-4.
The Brewers are 4-1 in Davies’ last five starts and 4-1 in his last five interleague starts. Milwaukee is 2-7 in Davies’ last nine starts in game two of a series and 3-9 in his last 12 versus a team with a winning record.
Meanwhile, the Twins are 4-0 in their last four in game two of a series and 4-0 in Perez’s last four starts with four days’ rest. Minnesota is 6-1 in Perez’s last seven starts and 5-1 in his last six on grass.
Davies had a nice run going this month with three consecutive quality starts. In those, he logged just four earned in 20.0 innings. Davies had some issues his last time out though, with six earned in 3.0 versus the Reds.
As for Perez, he’s been pretty consistent for most of the year, and has given up more than two earned in just one of his last six outings.
Minnesota seems to play pretty well with Perez on the mound these days, so I’m going Twins. Should be a good game, though.
