San Diego will be throwing out Luis Perdomo to oppose Brent Suter as they look to give the home crowd a victory. Milwaukee has opened up as (-123) money line favorites, while the line has slowly dropped to (-116).
In their first matchup of the season Milwaukee was able to edge out San Diego 2-1 in 12 innings. Milwaukee was able to finish the game with 10 hits, but they couldn’t get them in bunches.
The game ball goes to they’re pitching staff who only gave up one run on six hits, while also striking producing 15 strikeouts.
Suter was a pleasant surprise for Milwaukee last year posting a 3.42 ERA and 3.75 FIP in 81 innings of work. He didn’t induce a lot of strikeouts (7.05 K/9), but did do a good job with the walks (2.42 BB/9) and the long ball (0.88 HR/9).
Another positive was that he was forcing soft hits 23.7% of the time, which is way above league average. This number isn’t likely to last as he doesn’t have the strikeout ability, but we’ll learn more about him as he takes on a higher volume of work this year.
San Diego Padres
It was a rough outing for San Diego’s lineup as they kept trying to swing for the fences, but to no avail striking out 15 time in their 1-2 loss on Thursday. They managed to get a clutch 9th inning hit from Freddy Galvis to take the game into extra innings, before falling in the 12th.
San Diego’s bats didn’t show up, but they’re pitching was spot on. Giving up one run in nine innings is stellar, but they need runs from the offense to keep this pitching staff inspired.
Perdomo improved in his second full season, but it still has more work to put in. The strikeouts were low (6.49 K/9) and the walks were high (3.57 BB/9), but did a nice job limiting home runs (0.93 HR/9).
He is a ground ball pitcher who induced ground balls 61.8% of the time last year, which is good considering he had a line drive percentage of 17.2%. What he needs to work on is his 68.3% LOB% and his HR/FB ratio of 15.6%.

Free Milwaukee Brewers vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction: Suter pitches gem against San Diego
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Milwaukee -116
Milwaukee has a lineup that can hit the ball, and facing a pitcher who induces ground balls 61% of the time, we should see them produce a steady stream of hits early on. San Diego can’t do much without the long ball, which should work in Suter’s favor as he doesn’t give up home runs very much.
