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

The Milwaukee Brewers look for another victory after winning four of their last six games. The Brewers have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Milwaukee Brewers have won four straight games when scoring more than three runs. Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 109 hits and 54 RBI while Lorenzo Cain and Travis Shaw have combined for 179 hits and 87 RBI. Chase Anderson gets the ball, and he is 6-7 with a 3.81 ERA and 87 strikeouts this season. Anderson is 2-2 with a 5.68 ERA and 17 strikeouts in his career against the Giants. 

The San Francisco Giants need a victory here in order to get a game above a .500 record. The Giants have allowed 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in three of their last six games. The San Francisco Giants have lost five straight games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Brandon Crawford leads the Giants with 101 hits and 41 RBI while Andrew McCutchen and Buster Posey have combined for 187 hits and 76 RBI. Madison Bumgarner gets the ball, and he is 3-3 with a 3.19 ERA and 46 strikeouts this season. Bumgarner is 7-2 with a 2.25 ERA and 61 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.

The Brewers are 35-16 in their last 51 during game 2 of a series, 2-5 in Andersons last 7 Friday starts and 1-4 in Andersons last 5 road starts. The Giants are 4-0 in their last 4 Friday games, 4-0 in Bumgarners last 4 home starts and 8-18 in Bumgarners last 26 starts. The Brewers are 5-16 in the last 21 meetings in San Francisco, 7-19 in the last 26 meetings and the Giants are 4-1 in Bumgarners last 5 home starts vs. Brewers.

Anderson has allowed two or less runs in each of his last six starts, and he has a 2.66 ERA with an allowed batting average of .217 on the road this season. Bumgarner hasn't quite been Bumgarner since his return from injury, and he's coming off a game in which he walked six batters. Control has been an issue for Bumgarner this season, as he's walked two or more batters in each of his seven starts. Not to mention the San Francisco Giants simply can't put together offense yet again. I'll gladly take the plus money here based on the value.

Milwaukee Brewers +130
