Playoff contenders will begin a two-game series on Tuesday night when the Milwaukee Brewers visit the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field.
Milwaukee leads the NL Central at 42-33 after taking two of three from the Toronto Blue Jays, including a 10-3 win in Sunday’s finale as a +140 underdog. Tampa Bay is coming off a three-game sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates capped by a 4-2 win on Sunday as a huge -240 favorite, improving to 40-32 on the season.
Brandon Woodruff struck out 10 over 5 innings in his return from the injured list, Andrew McCutchen and Luis Urías homered during a four-run sixth, and the Brewers beat the Rays 5-3 on Tuesday night.
After scuffling for most of June, the Brewers played much better last week, including an emphatic win in the rubber game against Toronto on Sunday.
Toronto plated three in the top of the first, but Rowdy Tellez launched a two-run homer in the bottom of the frame before Omar Narvaez tied the score with an RBI double, and the Brewers scored five the next inning highlighted by another two-run homer from Tellez against his old team.
That was an encouraging sign for a Milwaukee offense that has dipped to around average at 4.43 runs per game on a .717 OPS for the season. The pitching staff is turning in yet another strong season with a 3.76 ERA that ranks within the top 10, including a mark of 3.49 from the bullpen.
Tellez leads the charge at the plate with a .777 OPS, 13 homers and 45 RBI. Adames is also enjoying another strong campaign, putting up a .771 OPS with 15 home runs and 39 RBI despite missing some time with injury.
Tampa Bay Rays
It wasn’t easy in a series that was competitive throughout, but the injury-riddled Rays picked up a much-needed sweep of Pittsburgh after scuffling the previous few games.
Vidal Brujan opened the scoring in the bottom of the second in Sunday’s finale by drawing a bases-loaded walk, and while the score would remain tied at one for most of the afternoon, Ji-Man Choi broke the deadlock with an RBI double in the seventh before Josh Lowe and Isaac Paredes both added RBI singles.
The Rays have really scuffled offensively for a few weeks now, and are well within the bottom 10 overall in baseball at 4.06 runs per game on a .674 OPS. Tampa Bay pitching has made up for that, ranking fourth with a 3.18 collective ERA including a mark of 3.06 from an outstanding bullpen.
Isaac Paredes has posted gaudy numbers in 34 games with a .927 OPS, 10 homers and 21 RBI. Choi is also having a terrific season overall with a .287/.389/.473 line, 6 home runs and 35 driven in.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- The Brewers are 18-24 ATS on the road
- The Brewers O/U are 20-20-2 on the road
- The Rays are 18-23 ATS at home
- The Rays O/U are 17-21-3 at home
Milwaukee Brewers vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
These teams have followed a similar trajectory throughout the season, but the Brewers are the pick as Lauer plus their offense is a little more trustworthy than what Tampa Bay is offering.
The injury-riddled Rays are going to struggle to beat good teams right now, and Woodruff has the ability to easily handle an offense that has been very poor for a number of weeks now.
Give me the Brewers on the road.
