Brewers struggle at the plate
The Brewers suffered a 3-2 loss to the Indians on Tuesday night as Corey Kluber kept them in check. They have lost two straight. The Brewers are 37-24 overall with a 19-13 record on the road. Milwaukee is averaging 4.23 runs per game on the season while allowing 3.75 per contest.
Chase Anderson gets the start for the Brewers on Wednesday afternoon. He is making his 12th start of the season and comes into the night 4-4 on the season with a 4.45 ERA and 1.22 WHIP. Anderson has pitched a total of 60.2 innings this season and has 39 strikeouts with 23 walks.
Kluber gets Cleveland on track
The Tribe put an end to their three-game losing streak on Tuesday with a 3-2 victory thanks to seven strong innings from Kluber. Cleveland is now 31-28 overall and 19-11 at home. The Tribe are putting up 5.02 runs per game this season while allowing 4.66 per contest.
Carlos Carrasco is on the mound for Cleveland on Wednesday. He is 6-4 on the season through 12 starts. He has a 4.50 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP. Carrasco has pitched 76.0 innings and has 73 strikeouts with 11 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Brewers are 11-6 in their last 17 road games and 6-2 in Anderson’s last eight road starts. They also have won Anderson’s last six starts during Game 2 of a series.
The Indians have won seven of Carrasco’s last nine home starts and five of his last seven interleague starts.
Milwaukee has managed a pretty strong record despite some pretty average hitting. The Brewers are a little too reliant on their pitching to win and that will be a problem today, as Anderson hasn’t been all that dominant on the mound. Carrasco has the stuff to shut down this Milwaukee lineup and I think he leads the Indians to a win, much like Kluber did on Tuesday.
The Pick: Cleveland Indians -200
