The Line: Milwaukee Brewers / Philadelphia Phillies -- Over/Under:
NSPA, ESPN, FSWI
The Milwaukee Brewers and Philadelphia Phillies meet Monday in MLB action at Citizens Bank Park.
The Milwaukee Brewers look for a win after winning nine of their last 13 games. The Brewers have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 15 games. The Milwaukee Brewers have won 11 of their last 14 games when scoring more than one run. Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 44 hits and 37 RBI while Lorenzo Cain and Mike Moustakas have combined for 76 hits and 42 RBI. The Milwaukee Brewers didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.
The Philadelphia Phillies look for another win after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Phillies have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 13 games. The Philadelphia Phillies have won 12 of their last 13 games when scoring more than one run. Cesar Hernandez leads the Phillies with 42 hits and 15 RBI while Rhys Hoskins and Jean Segura have combined for 77 hits and 50 RBI. Aaron Nola gets the ball, and he is 3-0 with a 4.57 ERA and 45 strikeouts this season. Nola is 3-0 with a 2.37 ERA and 36 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 6-0 in their last 6 vs. National League East, 20-7 in their last 27 Monday games and 3-7 in their last 10 road games. The Phillies are 1-7 in their last 8 during game 1 of a series, 6-2 in their last 8 home games and 25-12 in Nolas last 37 starts. The Brewers are 12-5 in the last 17 meetings in Philadelphia and the Phillies are 4-1 in Nolas last 5 starts vs. Brewers. The over is 7-1 in Nolas last 8 starts overall. The under is 18-7-1 in Brewers last 26 road games.
The Milwaukee Brewers offense has gone cold the last two games, and now they're facing one of the top pitchers in the National League in Nola, who has found his form lately. In his last 18.2 innings, Nola has allowed 17 hits and three runs while striking out 17. Nola is giving up a lot of hits this season, but he buckles down with guys on base and has an ERA of 1.54 in two starts this month. Nola has also won 22 of his last 30 home starts. I like the Philadelphia Phillies to keep the ball rolling and win with their ace on the hill.
