The winning continues here as on Friday we release the under the total of eight runs from the Milwaukee Brewers and Washington Nationals Major League Baseball contest. It was another quality start from Brewers young 23 year old right hander Michael Fiers who goes a very good 6 1/3rd innings as he allowed the Nationals hitters no earned runs and four hits along with nine strikeouts. He lowered his ERA of just 1.77 and over his past seven starts has allowed just four earned runs working a total of 47 innings. The Brewers bullpen chipped in with 2 2/3rds of hitless and scoreless relief to preserve the under the total result.
