The Philadelphia Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers get set to begin a 4 game weekend series on Thursday night.
While the Brewers have buried themselves in the NL Central, the Phillies are within striking distance in a tough NL East.
Milwaukee got back in the win column on Wednesday afternoon, but they still have quite the mountain to climb.
Sitting 12.5 games off the base, the Brewers will likely be sellers this season unless a hot streak comes and comes quickly.
The Brewers start this road trip off this weekend, a place where they have struggled. Milwaukee has compiled just a 9-14 record away from Miller Park as they average below 4 runs while conceding nearly 5 runs per game.
Pitching has been a giant problem this year for them as they sit 24th in the league with a 4.60 ERA.
Anderson has been a mess this season, compiling a 5.00 ERA with a 2-6 record on the season. Overall, the Brewers are just 3-7 in his 10 starts this season. Anderson himself is 1-6 in his last 7 decisions.
The Phillies have hung around in the NL East, but they are starting to slip up a bit.
They sit in 4th, 5.5 games back, but there isn’t much room for error when it comes to the NL East.
The pitching has been the biggest key for the Phillies success. They rank 10th in ERA (3.85), 7th in WHIP (1.22), 4th K’s (457), and 8th Quality Starts (29).
The Phillies will send out Jerad Eickhoff.
