|Date & Time||Wednesday July 31, 2019, 10:07 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Milwaukee Brewers +115 / Oakland Athletics -135 -- Over/Under: 9
The Milwaukee Brewers and Oakland Athletics meet Wednesday in MLB action at Oakland Coliseum.
The Milwaukee Brewers look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Brewers have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 12 games. The Milwaukee Brewers have split their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 123 hits and 80 RBI while Lorenzo Cain and Mike Moustakas have combined for 200 hits and 96 RBI. Gio Gonzalez gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 3.48 ERA and 36 strikeouts this season. This will be Gonzalez’s second career game against the Athletics.
The Oakland Athletics look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Athletics have scored 14 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last eight games. The Oakland Athletics have lost five of their last six games when scoring three or less runs. Marcus Semien leads the Athletics with 120 hits and 52 RBI while Ramon Laureano and Matt Chapman have combined for 212 hits and 119 RBI. Brett Anderson gets the ball, and he is 9-6 with a 4.05 ERA and 61 strikeouts this season. Anderson is 0-0 with a 5.51 ERA and 12 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 3-7 in their last 10 interleague games, 2-8 in their last 10 vs. American League West and 2-8 in their last 10 interleague road games. The Athletics are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series, 9-3 in their last 12 interleague home games and 4-1 in Andersons last 5 starts. The Brewers are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Oakland. The under is 4-1 in Andersons last 5 starts overall. The over is 6-1 in Brewers last 7 road games.
Gonzalez has allowed eight hits and five runs in his last 10.1 innings, and he's clearly still getting his feet wet after missing all of June. Anderson has allowed 23 hits and 12 runs in his last 23.2 innings, and he has a 4.75 ERA and .286 allowed batting average at home. It's hard to give either team a clear edge in starting pitching here, but I usually like to back the Oakland Athletics at home due to an offense that puts together good at bats and clutch hits. Last night's walkout win only adds to the A's confidence heading into this contest. I'll side with the A's and the cheap price.
