The San Diego Padres and the Milwaukee Brewers will meet today at Miller Park in Milwaukee. All MLB odds can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The Brewers are trying to hang tough in the division race and won on Friday night to keep pace. They actually had a good night offensively amassing 9 runs and 10 hits as a team. Shawn Marcum had enough on the mound to get his fifth win of the season and the Brewers will send Michael Fiers to the mound this afternoon. Fiers is making just his third start of the season and as pitched to a 3.75 ERA in just 12 innings of work.
The Padres contributed to their worst record in baseball status by losing another game on Friday. Their offense was pretty good last night for a Padres team that has been lackluster all season hitting wise. Edinson Volquez had a rough start and notched his 6th loss on the season. Andrew Cashner gets his second career start in this one as most of his work during his career has come out of the bullpen.
Milwaukee is 8-3 in their last 11 games overall, 5-0 against the N.L. West, and 63-30 in their last 93 games as a home favorite. San Diego is 17-36 in their last 53 games overall, 1-6 in their last seven games against a team with a losing record, and 0-5 in game two of a series. San Diego is 2-6 in their last eight games in Milwaukee.
All signs in this one point to a lot of runs. Both offenses hit well yesterday against more quality pitchers than they will face today. Give us the over in total runs for this one at best sportsbooks online.
