Milwaukee had quite the Opening Day to forget. After getting shell shocked by the San Francisco Giants in the series opener, the Brewers will meet once again with the Giants on Tuesday night.
San Francisco put up a 12 spot in what was a game dominated from the start as they rolled to a 12-3 win.

The Giants had to deal with a few players battling the flu on Monday afternoon, but that didn’t stop this team from turning things up a notch.
Buster Posey and Madison Bumgarner headlined two of those players with flu like symptoms, but both were stellar in the win over the Brewers. Posey notched a home under his belt, while Bumgarner bobbed and weaved out of trouble and never let Milwaukee gain any traction.
San Francisco will now send the guy they took a chance on this offseason, Johnny Cueto. After Cueto was traded to the World Series winning Royals, he really wasn’t the same pitcher.
He struggled and labored at times as he was just not trusted by KC. This past offseason the Giants dished out 130 million to acquire him for 6 years. Cueto has some high expectations to build up too here this season.
Cueto has dominated the Brewers in his career, going 9-3 with a 2.87 ERA as he faced them 18 times. A majority of those starts came when he was a Red.
Milwaukee doesn’t have many high expectations to live up to this year. Well, they certainly showed that in the series opener as they were battered around in a 12-3 defeat.
While their pitching was one story, hitting with runners on was another. Milwaukee finished just 1 for 8 with RISP and their sluggish start in the defeat stemmed from the inability to get a clutch hit.
Milwaukee will also be working with a very unproven staff this year. They’re number 2 starter, who they will send to the mound on Tuesday is Jimmy Nelson.
Last year, Nelson finished 11-13 with a 4.11 ERA. However, Nelson earned the #2 nod thanks to a solid spring. Nelson finished 2-1 with an ERA of only 1.17 in 4 starts.
Nelson has faced the Giants one time, but that was back in 2014 as he allowed 3 runs in 7 innings of work

Give the edge to the Giants here.
They took a chance on Cueto and while he has a lot to live up to, it’s assumed him being back in the National League could be a nice sight.

Lay the juice here. They are just too good and deep offensively here as they should have no problem handling them for a 2nd straight night.
