The Nationals eked out a 2-1 win on Friday in the opener of this set. On Saturday, Milwaukee returned the favor with an epic 14-inning victory 15-14.
For the Sunday game, the Brewers will bring out Chase Anderson for the start. Across his 104.2 innings and 5-2 mark so far, Anderson has a 3.78 ERA with 98 Ks and 36 BBs.
Milwaukee piled in 20 hits in their extra-innings victory Saturday. Christian Yelich was one of many great performers with two homers, five hits, three runs and four RBI.
Over on the Nationals’ side, they’re rolling with Erick Fedde on Sunday. Fedde is 3-2 this year with a 4.09 ERA and 36 Ks.
Washington logged 18 hits in the Saturday loss, and had a bit of a rally going in the bottom of the 14th as well but couldn’t capitalize.
The Brewers are 1-4 in their last five in game three fo a series and 1-5 in the last six Sunday games. Milwaukee is 7-2 in Anderson’s last nine starts in game three of a series and 5-11 in their last 16 Sunday starts.
Meanwhile, the Nationals are 5-1 in their last six overall and 4-1 in their last five home games. Washington is 4-1 in their last five versus a right-handed starter and 11-5 in their last 16 after a loss.
Anderson has proven himself as a key cog in the Brewers starting crew, even though he didn’t even start out the year in the rotation. He has three or fewer runs in 10 straight starts.
As for Fedde, he’s got consecutive solid outings, with two runs in 12 innings during that time. This should be a good one but I’ll go with the steady Anderson and the Brewers here.
