There were concerns that San Diego could be vulnerable coming off a series with the Dodgers and then heading to L.A. in the upcoming weekend. That’s exactly what has happened as the Brewers gun for the sweep on Wednesday afternoon.
Milwaukee has gotten great pitching from their #1 and #2 starters, but will that continue as they get further down in the rotation? The Padres are huge -200 favorites in what is expected to be another low scoring game with a total of 7.5.
Milwaukee came into this short 3-game West Coast swing without Christian Yelich, Lorenzo Cain, or Kolten Wong but there offense has actually been more productive without them.
The Brewers dominated 6-0 on Tuesday night, their third time scoring 5+ runs in the last four games. Billy McKinney and Jace Peterson both went yard, and a 5-run 3rd inning provided Corbin Burnes more than enough as he struck out 10 over 6.0 IP.
Milwaukee’s offense doesn’t have a ton of experience against Padres starter Dinelson Lamet, getting 3 hits in a combined 16 AB. Keston Hiura does have a solo HR in one of his 3 AB however.
The main pressure isn’t going to be on the Brewers offense, but on starter Adrian Houser to deliver a third straight sparkling performance. Houser hasn’t pitched into the 6th in any of his three starts this season, but has also only allowed 5 ER in 14.1 IP.
San Diego Padres
San Diego will try to find their offense and salvage at least one of the three with the Brewers before heading to Chavez Ravine for a 4-game set with the Dodgers this weekend. The Padres lost 2 of 3 to L.A last weekend, and you can tell there’s an emotional hangover still lingering.
So far the Padres have tallied one run in the two games vs. the Brew Crew. Burnes’ performance was great on Tuesday, but Brandon Woodruff allowed just 1 hit over 6.0 IP in the series opener.
San Diego’s best chance is to try to get to Houser early, because they also have just 3 hits and haven’t scored a run against the Brewers bullpen so far. As a team San Diego is just 2-19 against Houser though.
Pitching is also a big question mark for the Padres on Wednesday, as Dinelson Lamet is making his season debut. He was solid last year (3-1, 2.09 ERA) but one would also think very rusty and on a pitch count.

Free Milwaukee Brewers vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
San Diego did a nice job of salvaging a win against the Dodgers in their series finale on Sunday, can they repeat the feat against the Brewers? One big difference – Blake Snell was on the mound in that game.
There’s just too much of an unknown with Lamet making his first start off the injury list. Milwaukee’s offense has been better without Yelich and Co., and at the very least San Diego is just way too risky of a play at the price of -200. That almost seems like a typo.
