Pair of four-run innings propel Brewers
Milwaukee trailed 3-2 going into the sixth inning Saturday, but scored four in the sixth and another four in the seventh to take complete control. The Brewers scored two more in the ninth to roll to the 12-3 win. Christian Yelich went 3-for-5 with two runs to help pace the offense. Jesus Aguilar finished 2-for-5 with two runs and three RBIs. Ryan Braun was 2-for-4 with a home run, three runs and two RBIs. Jonathan Villar went 1-for-4 with a walk, two runs and two RBIs. Erik Kratz finished 1-for-3 with a double and two runs. Ji-Man Choi added a go-ahead pinch hit grand slam in the sixth inning. Brent Suter picked up the win as he gave up three earned runs on four hits with five strikeouts and a walk over five innings.
Hoskins shines in return
Phillies left fielder Rhys Hoskins returned to the lineup after spending time on the DL with a broken jaw and showed no ill effects. He hit a three-run homer in his second at-bat, putting the hosts ahead by a count of 3-2 before giving up 10 unanswered runs. Cesar Hernandez was 1-for-3 with a walk and a run. Jake Arrieta suffered the loss as he gave up five runs (four earned) on four hits with four strikeouts and three walks over 5 1/3 innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The under is 33-16-2 in the last 51 Brewers games on Sunday. Milwaukee is 15-7 in the last 22 meetings.
The Phillies are 4-11 in the last 15 Eflin starts. The under is 17-6-2 in the last 25 Philadephia games on Sunday.
Woodruff has gotten lucky with run support in one of his three starts, giving up seven earned runs over three innings but leaving with a no-decision in an 11-10 win at Colorado. He has not made an MLB appearance since May 16, when he gae up two earned runs on only one hit with six strikeouts and four walks in five innings during an 8-2 win at Arizona. Woodruff is a serviceable pitcher, but is lucky to not have a loss on his record yet. Eflin has pitched well at times this season and I happen to like him in this spot as the Brewers will almost certainly cool down after yesterday's huge offensive showing. I'm going to take the Phillies to end their losing streak this afternoon at home.
