The Milwaukee Brewers are in San Francisco this afternoon for the final game of their three game series with the Giants. The Giants have owned the Brewers over the past year or so winning 7 of the last 8 meetings overall which includes 5 of the last 6 played in San Francisco.
Head to Head Trends
Brewers are 1-7 in the last 8 meetings.
Brewers are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in San Francisco.
The San Francisco Giants are 2nd in the National League West just a half game back of the Dodgers. After losing 7 games in a row earlier this month the Giants have been the hottest team in baseball winning 12 of their last 14 games. A big reason for the Giants success of late is not only are they getting solid pitching but their bats have been red hot led by Buster Posey who has 24 hits during this hot stretch.
Starting for the Giants this afternoon is veteran Jake Peavy who is 2-4 with a 4.86 ERA in his 6 starts this season. Peavy was a little suspect in his first couple starts back but he seems to be getting stronger each and every start.
San Francisco Giants Trends
Giants are 12-2 in their last 14 overall.
Giants are 5-0 in Peavys last 5 starts vs. a team with a losing record.
Milwaukee Brewers (+109)
The Milwaukee Brewers are last in the National League Central 20.5 games out of 1st place. The Brewers had an 8 game win streak back in late June early July but that was when just about every Brewers hitter got super hot all at the same time and apart from that they haven’t done much else this season.
On the hill for the Brewers today is Mike Fiers who is 5-8 with a 3.94 ERA on the season. Fiers has been a little hit or miss this season. Out of his 20 starts 8 have been classified as quality starts and just 2 of those came after throwing 100+ pitches is his previous start so that might be something worth keeping an eye on.
Milwaukee Brewers Trends
Brewers are 2-5 in their last 7 overall.
Brewers are 0-4 in Fiers’ last 4 starts vs. National League West.
I like the San Francisco Giants over the Brewers in this one. I think the Giants are just super hot right now especially their offense while the Brewers bats have gone ice cold lately.
