Brewers' Woodruff pounded for seven runs by Rockies

Brandon Woodruff was lit up for seven runs in three innings by the Rockies in Coors Field on Friday. Woodruff was called up before the game to take Wade Miley's place in the rotation. Since the short outing led to the Brewers extending their pen tonight, they might want to send Woodruff back down in exchange for a fresh arm now. If not, then he'll start again next week.

Diamondbacks' Koch tosses eight innings in loss to Nationals

Matt Koch took his first loss after giving up three runs in eight innings Friday against the Nationals. Koch gave up two homers and three doubles, but he walked just one. He was really efficient once again, throwing 97 pitches in his eight innings. The homers should keep coming, so he's not a great bet in mixed leagues for the long haul. He's given the Diamondbacks a big boost thus far, though.

MLB Betting Trends


The Brewers are 3-7 in their last 10 games against the Diamondbacks in Arizona following last night's loss.


The over has cashed in five of the last seven meetings between these two teams in Arizona.


I see both of these pitchers getting knocked around today. Koch owns a 3.24 ERA but his 4.77 SIERA paints a different picture. He's not generating strikeouts (14.9%) and while he's not walking many batters (6.7%), he's also giving up some hard contact (45.1%). Woodruff, meanwhile, is one of the worst pitcher's on today's slate. The Diamondbacks have been in a deep funk offensively to start the year but if they can't get to Woodruff then I don't know who they'll batter around. I like the over.

The Pick: Brewers/Diamondbacks over 9
