The Line: Milwaukee Brewers / San Diego Padres -- Over/Under:
The Milwaukee Brewers and San Diego Padres meet Tuesday in MLB action at Petco Park.
The Milwaukee Brewers look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Brewers have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 10 games. The Milwaukee Brewers have won seven of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 81 hits and 57 RBI while Mike Moustakas and Lorenzo Cain have combined for 140 hits and 72 RBI. Brandon Woodruff gets the ball, and he is 8-1 with a 3.87 ERA and 96 strikeouts this season. This will be Woodruff’s second career game against the Padres.
The San Diego Padres could use a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Padres have scored 24 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 14 games. The San Diego Padres have split their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Eric Hosmer leads the Padres with 79 hits and 48 RBI while Manny Machado and Hunter Renfroe have combined for 124 hits and 83 RBI. Logan Allen will make his major league debut when he takes the mound tonight. Allen was 28-23 with a 3.08 ERA and 441 strikeouts in his minor league career.
The Brewers are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series, 0-4 in their last 4 Tuesday games and 17-5 in Woodruff's last 22 starts. The Padres are 4-9 in their last 13 Tuesday games, 2-7 in their last 9 vs. National League Central and 2-6 in their last 8 overall. The Brewers are 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in San Diego and 9-4 in the last 13 meetings. The over is 6-2-2 in Padres last 10 home games. The over is 4-0 in Woodruff's last 4 starts overall.
Woodruff has been hit hard in the month of June where he's given up 18 hits and 12 runs through 17 innings while walking six. With that said, the Brewers have won nine straight games Woodruff has pitched. Allen will make his major league debut and I have a thing about shying away from pitchers in these spots, as I have no idea what to expect. Allen has also struggled this year in the minors where he has an ERA over five and has 22 walks in 57.2 innings. You have to give the edge to the Milwaukee Brewers in this contest.
