San Diego Padres
This season the Padres rank 23rd in the Majors in runs scored and 17th in team ERA.
James Shields (1-5 3.60 ERA) goes for the Padres tonight and in his last start he gave up 4 earned runs in 6 innings in a 6-3 loss to the New York Mets. San Diego has lost 6 of his 7 starts this season.
Before Shields’ last outing he had only given up 1 earned run in each of his previous 2 starts.
This will be Shields first career start against the Brewers.
Shields has one of the lowest runs-support-average (2.00) in the National League.
The Padres are 4-9 in Shields’ last 13 road starts.
The Padres are 7-9 on the road this season.
The Brewers have a legit offense ranking 9th in runs scored, but their pitching has struggled, big time, this season ranking dead last in the Majors in team ERA.
Jimmy Nelson (4-2 3.74 ERA) goes for the Brew Crew tonight and in his last outing he gave up 5 earned runs in 5 innings, but the offense bailed him out in a 13-7 win over the Cincinnati Reds. Milwaukee has won 5 of his last 6 starts including his last 2.
In Nelson’s last 12 home starts he is 7-2 with a 2.90 ERA. He has only faced the Padres once at home and that was last season when he only gave up 1 run off 3 hits in a 4-1 Milwaukee win.
Last season the Brewers won 5 of their 7 games facing the Padres.
The Brewers are 4-0 in Nelson’s last 4 starts against a team with a losing record.
This season the Brewers are 8-9 at home.

I think Nelson will have a good outing and while Shields may as well it will be the same old song and dance, as he will get little run support.
