The Milwaukee Brewers and San Francisco Giants will continue their three-game series on Saturday night from Miller Park. San Francisco won the series opener on Friday night but will be an underdog for the second straight game on Saturday. The Brewers are trying to make the playoffs for a second straight year, while the Giants are going through a long and slow rebuild.
Milwaukee fell to 1.5 games behind the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central Division with the loss on Friday night. The Brewers come into this game with a record of 47-45 and have now lost six of their last seven games. San Francisco has now won three straight games but still sits in last place in the NL West. The Giants are just 42-48 on the season despite playing great baseball in July. The Milwaukee Brewers are -120 over the San Francisco Giants in game two of the series.
Bumgarner Still in Giants Uniform
Veteran lefthander Madison Bumgarner will make the start for the Giants on Saturday night, but his days in San Francisco might be numbered. The Giants aren’t going to be a playoff team this season, and there will be plenty of teams trying to acquire the former World Series MVP. Bumgarner has struggled a bit this season and comes into this game with a 5-7 record to go along with a 4.03 earned run average. He still has the stuff to help a contending team down the stretch.
San Francisco has struggled to score runs for much of the season, but they put up a 10-spot in the series opener. Catcher Buster Posey belted a 10th-inning grand slam to lift the Giants to an impressive victory. The Giants have hit just 93 home runs as a team this season, and Kevin Pillar leads the team with 13. The lack of power in the lineup is a big reason that the Giants are below .500 this season.
Yelich Continues to Lead Brewers Offense
Christian Yelich is doing all that he can to lead his Brewers team, but he needs some help from his teammates. Yelich has hit 31 home runs and driven in 67 runs this season to go along with a stellar .330 batting average. Mike Moustakas has chipped in with 25 home runs, but the Brewers just aren’t getting enough production from their everyday lineup.
Right-hander Zach Davies will be on the mound for the Brewers on Saturday night, and he has been terrific this season. Davies comes into this game with a record of 7-2 to go along with a terrific earned run average of 3.02. Davies is looking for his first win since June 8 but should have a great chance in this game. The Brewers bullpen blew a late lead in the series opener, but they have one of the best closers in the game in Josh Hader.
Milwaukee Wins Game Two of Series
The Brewers are usually extremely tough to beat in their home ballpark, but that wasn’t the case on Friday night. Look for Milwaukee to bounce back in game two of the series and even things up. The Brewers know that they can’t let these games slip away, and they will find enough offense on Saturday night. Bet the Milwaukee Brewers -120 over the San Francisco Giants.
