National League Battle at Miller Park in Milwaukee
The Milwaukee Brewers will host the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday at 8:10 PM ET. According to the MLB betting odds at Bookmaker, the Dodgers are a -117 money line favorite, and the posted total is 8.5. These teams have split the first two of this four game series at Miller Park.
Joe Wieland will make his first start of the season for the Dodgers tonight. Wieland made four starts for the San Diego Padres last year, and posted a large 7.15 ERA in those outings. One of those starts came versus the Brewers, and he allowed three earned runs on five hits while walking two during a 8-3 Padres loss. Wieland was 3-0 with a 3.60 ERA in four starts with AAA Oklahoma City this season.
The Brewers will counter with right-hander Wily Peralta. It’s been a rather forgettable start to the 2015 season for the Brewers hurler. He’s gone 0-5 in his team starts with a 4.35 ERA and a poor 1.55 WHIP. In his one career start at home versus the Dodgers, Peralta last just 1 2/3 innings, gave up four earned runs, and allowed seven hits while walking two in a 9-2 Brewers that came in 2013.
The Dodgers have scored six runs or more in six of their last ten games. They’ve also banged out 42 homers in their first forty-two games of the 2015 MLB campaign. Putting that home run number into perspective, they’re on pace to hit 262 round trippers this season. The Brewers are allowing 5.6 runs per game at home. I have little confidence that Wily Peralta will be able to slow down the potent Dodgers offensive attack based on his early season performances. Milwaukee should be able to score their share of runs tonight against untested Dodgers starter Joe Weiland. I like this game to be a high scoring affair for one of my MLB picks on Wednesday.
