The Line: Cincinnati Reds -156 / Milwaukee Brewers +146 --- Over/Under: 7.5
The Cincinnati Reds look to sweep the Milwaukee Brewers early Wednesday afternoon.
The Milwaukee Brewers look for a win after losing four of their last five games. The Brewers have allowed 13 runs in this series and four or more runs in six of their last 10 games. The Brewers have lost 10 straight games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Jean Segura and Adam Lind have combined for 48 hits and 20 RBI while Ryan Braun has 15 hits in 66 at-bats. The Milwaukee Brewers have lost seven straight games on the road. Matt Garza gets the ball, and he’s 1-3 with a 5.16 ERA and 15 strikeouts this season. Garza is 3-3 with a 4.12 ERA and 47 strikeouts in his career against the Reds.
The Cincinnati Reds look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Reds have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Reds have won four straight games when topping three runs. Joey Votto leads Cincy with 24 hits and 16 RBI while Todd Frazier and Jay Bruce have combined for 26 RBI. The Cincinnati Reds have lost four of their last six home games. Michael Lorenzen takes the hill for his major league debut. Lorenzen was 7-8 with a 3.08 ERA and 115 strikeouts in his minor league career.
The Brewers are 7-21 in their last 28 vs. National League Central and 3-7 in Garzas last 10 starts. The Reds are 2-4 in their last 6 home games. The Brewers are 15-36 in the last 51 meetings in Cincinnati and 1-5 in the last 6 meetings overall.
Yes, the Brewers are probably the worst team in all of baseball. However, they're playing a kid making his pitching debut in the big leagues. I'll always take a healthy plus money line in this case.
