The Milwaukee Brewers have won eight of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs.

Jimmy Nelson gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 12.00 ERA and two strikeouts this season. Nelson is 2-2 with a 5.28 ERA and 22 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants look for another win to build on their three-game winning streak. The Giants have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 12 games. The San Francisco Giants have won six straight games when scoring four or more runs. Steven Duggar leads the Giants with 56 hits and 28 RBI while Joe Panik and Kevin Pillar have combined for 103 hits and 47 RBI. Madison Bumgarner gets the ball, and he is 3-6 with a 3.83 ERA and 84 strikeouts this season. Bumgarner is 7-4 with a 2.63 ERA and 70 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 4-0 in Nelson's last 4 starts vs. National League West, 7-3 in Nelson's last 10 Saturday starts and 5-1 in Nelson's last 6 starts. The Giants are 3-7 in their last 10 home games, 2-6 in their last 8 Saturday games and 1-5 in Bumgarner's last 6 starts vs. National League Central. The Brewers are 5-12 in the last 17 meetings in San Francisco, 6-1 in the last 7 meetings and the Giants are 7-3 in Bumgarner's last 10 starts vs. Brewers. The over is 5-2 in Bumgarner's last 7 starts overall. The under is 4-1 in Nelson's last 5 starts overall.
Nelson has just three innings under his belt this season and it wasn't a good performance against the Miami Marlins. You'd expect the rust will still be there until he gets a few more starts. Bumgarner is coming off arguably his best performance of the season where he held the Dodgers to four hits and one run through seven innings, and while he got the loss to the Giants poor offense, it's a sign that he's slowly but surely putting things together and looking more and more like the ace we're used to seeing. I love getting ace quality pitchers and cheap prices. Give me the Giants for a fourth straight victory.
