The Brewers held serve at Miller Park, which means it not only has a chance to end this thing early and keep pace with the Dodgers, who look like they’re going to cruise into the NLCS, but it even if it loses Games 3 and 4, it will be at home in the elimination game and won’t have to deal with Kyle Freeland or German Marquez.
That’s because those two are Colorado’s projected starting pitchers in Games 3 and, if necessary, 4. Marquez takes the ball on Sunday evening, trying to stave off elimination.
He’s nasty. He set Colorado’s single-season strikeout record in the final start of his regular season, at least the 162-game variety. He struck out the first eight Phillies and finished with eleven in the game and 221 on the season.
But Marquez weakens as his start lengthens. He’ll be strong as a bull for fifty pitches, or so, but then start to fall off. That’s something to keep an eye on. Buddy Black may have to pull him before he’s given up any damage, rather than after.
It certainly helps Colorado that Tyler Anderson pitched deep into Game 2. Milwaukee’s strategy against Marquez will be to work the count and put the ball in play. If the Brewers can do that, they have a chance.
Meanwhile, Colorado was shutout in Game 2 by Jhoulys Chacin and that dominant Milwaukee bullpen. The Rockies scored zero in the first eight innings of Game 1 and zero in all of Game 2.
For that reason, the 9.5 total is going to get some attention on the under, especially given the Rockies are turning to the best starting pitcher they will have used in the series, to date.
I buy into the under, too, because of Wade Miley and the believe I have in him keeping the ball down and off of the barrel at Coors Field.
He had a tremendous season. He was defeated just twice in sixteen starts and posted a career-high 159 ERA+.
I am just the slightest bit concerned with how liberally Craig Counsell is going to his go-to guys out of the bullpen. He has four really good ones but it sure would be nice if all four didn’t have to throw in every game.
The day off on Saturday will help but if those four throw again on Sunday and the Brewers lose, the innings will start to really pile up ahead of Game 4.

Free Milwaukee Brewers vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction: under in the first five innings.
The Rockies have to get off to a quick start but I’m not sure they will against Miley. I do have questions about which relievers will be in the game late in this one so let me play the under but keep it restricted to the first five innings.
