The San Diego Padres look for another win after winning four of their last five games. The Padres have scored 20 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The San Diego Padres have won five of 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 127 hits and 84 RBI.

The Brewers are 25-9 in their last 34 during game 3 of a series, 4-1 in their last 5 Wednesday games and 4-1 in Davies' last 5 Wednesday starts. The Padres are 1-4 in their last 5 Wednesday games, 0-6 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series and 1-4 in Strahms last 5 starts. The Brewers are 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in San Diego, 9-4 in the last 13 meetings and 4-0 in Davies' last 4 starts vs. Padres. The under is 11-4-2 in Strahms last 17 starts overall. The under is 34-15-3 in Davies' last 52 starts overall.
Davies consistently gives the Brewers a chance when he takes the mound, and he has a 2.25 ERA in 48 innings on the road this season. Strahm has a 5.60 ERA and a .260 allowed batting average at home, and he's given up 14 hits and 13 earned runs in his last 7.2 innings overall. The Padres have lost four of the last five games Strahms has pitched. The Milwaukee Brewers are also due for a bounce back performance to snap out of this little funk they've gotten themselves into. This feels like a game the Brewers should win.
