The Milwaukee Brewers and the New York Mets will meet up to continue their MLB series on Saturday.
In the Friday opener of this set, the Brewers pumped out five runs in the third inning on the way to a 10-2 win in a rain-delayed game.
For the Saturday game, the Brewers will be bringing out Brandon Woodruff in the start. Over his 26.1 innings and 2-1 mark this year, Woodruff has a 5.81 ERA with 32 Ks and nine walks.
In Friday’s loss, Milwaukee’s Lorenzo Cain had a great day at the plate, going 2-for-5 with three RBI and two runs—although he did strike out twice.
Over on the Mets’ side, they’re going with Noah Syndergaard on Saturday. In his 29.0 innings and 1-2 mark this year, Syndergaard has a 5.90 ERA with 34 Ks and seven walks.
New York’s offense didn’t have too much luck on Friday in the loss. Robinson Cano and Brandon Nimmo each put up two hits and combined for a run and an RBI.
The Brewers are 5-2 in Woodruff’s last seven road starts and 7-3 in his last 10 starts. Milwaukee is 7-3 in Woodruff’s last 10 starts on grass and 4-0 in his last four starts with five days’ rest.
Meanwhile, the Mets are 9-2 in the last 11 in game two of a series and 4-1 in Syndergaard’s last five starts in game two of a series. New York is 8-2 in Syndergaard’s last 10 home starts and 5-2 in his last seven starts with five days’ rest.
Over his first five starts this year, Woodruff has a couple of good ones (four earned in 10.2 innings and three not-so-good ones (13 earned in 15.2 innings) but on the whole hasn’t been terrible.
As for Syndergaard, he’s given up 15 earned over 17.0 innings across his last three starts combined so I’m not super confident with him either.
I like Woodruff to come out and deliver five or six solid innings and the Brewers to take it in a close one here.
