The Milwaukee Brewers and San Francisco Giants meet Thursday in MLB action at AT&T Park.

The Milwaukee Brewers look for a spark of consistency after splitting their last six games. The Brewers have scored 14 runs in their last three games and three or more runs in five of their last six games. The Milwaukee Brewers have won three of their last four games when scoring more than two runs. Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 106 hits and 52 RBI while Lorenzo Cain and Travis Shaw have combined for 177 hits and 85 RBI. Wade Miley gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 1.56 ERA and 11 strikeouts this season. Miley is 4-4 with a 3.90 ERA and 37 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.

The San Francisco Giants could use a victory here after losing three of their last four games. The Giants have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in three of their last five games. The San Francisco Giants have won 10 of their last 12 games when scoring more than three runs. Brandon Crawford leads the Giants with 99 hits and 41 RBI while Andrew McCutchen and Buster Posey have combined for 184 hits and 74 RBI. Dereck Rodriguez gets the ball, and he is 5-1 with a 2.72 ERA and 42 strikeouts this season. This will be Rodriguez’s first career game against the Brewers.

The Brewers are 14-4 in their last 18 vs. National League West, 0-6 in their last 6 road games and 3-8 in their last 11 overall. The Giants are 19-9 in their last 28 home games, 4-0 in Rodriguezs last 4 home starts and 6-0 in Rodriguezs last 6 starts. The Brewers are 5-16 in the last 21 meetings in San Francisco, 7-19 in the last 26 meetings and the under is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings.

Miley has just 17.1 innings under his belt this season, so it's tough to figure out exactly what pitcher he's going to be moving forward. In 171 career at bats against current Giants, they're hitting .251 against him with six homers. Rodriguez has allowed just three hits and one run in his last 9.1 innings of work and has been really sharp at home where he's allowing a 2.28 ERA with an allowed batting average of .206. The San Francisco Giants are also a much, much better team at home, while the Milwaukee Brewers have had more than their fair share of hiccups on the road. Give me the Giants for the decent price.
