The Milwaukee Brewers and the Philadelphia Phillies will meet for game 2 of 4 tonight. All odds and trends for this game can be found at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Brewers have had a down season so far, but came from behind Thursday night for a win. They were led in large part to an eighth inning grand slam by Corey Hart en route to the win. Tonight they will start Yovani Gallardo who has won his last three starts. Gallardo has just allowed 137 hits in 147 innings of work good enough for 3.78 ERA.
The Phillies look to have the win in hand on Thursday, but let it slip away as they have their entire season. Cliff Lee was solid to start, but the bullpen could not hold the lead which has been the story of this season for Lee. Tonight the Phillies will look to bounce back behind Vance Worley. Worley is pitching to 3.97 ERA in 118 innings of work.
Milwaukee is 7-0 in their last seven home games, 2-5 in their last seven games overall, and 9-3 in Gallardo’s last 12 starts. Philadelphia is 7-2 in their last nine games against a team with a losing record, 4-1 in game two of a series, and 2-5 in Worley’s last seven starts as an underdog. Philadelphia is 7-2 in their last nine games in Milwaukee.
Gallardo has been on a roll as of late winning his last three starts. We like the Brewers as a Moneyline favorite at home but first check the sports odds.
