Yelich locked in

Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich has been on a tear lately and it continued last night as he went 3-for-5 with a home run, a double, three runs and two RBIs in a 7-5 win at the Giants. Eric Thames finished 2-for-5 with two double and a run. Jesus Aguilar was 2-for-4 with a double, a walk, a run and an RBI. Travis Shaw was 2-for-5 with a home run, two runs and two RBIs. Erik Kratz went 2-for-4 with a walk and an RBI. Josh Hader picked up the win in relief as he struck out two in 1 1/3 innings of spotless baseball. Corey Knebel gave up two earned runs on two hits with three strikeouts and a walk over 1 1/3 innings, but was able to hang on for his 13th save.

Bullpen struggles for Giants

The San Francisco bullpen gave up five earned runs over the final two innings Thursday to send the hosts to defeat. Mark Melancon suffered the loss as he allowed two four earned runs on two hits and a walk in two-thirds of an inning. Austin Slater was 0-for-3 but walked twice and scored two runs for the Giants offense. Andrew McCutchen was 1-for-4 with a double, a walk and an RBI. Buster Posey went 2-for-3 with a walk, a run and an RBI. Evan Longoria finishe 2-for-4 with a run, while Brandon Crawford was also 2-for-4. Steven Duggar ended the night 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, a run and an RBI.

Chase Anderson (6-7, 3.81 ERA) takes the mound tonight for the Brewers, while the Giants turn to ace Madison Bumgarner (3-3, 3.19).

MLB Betting Trends

Milwaukee

The over is 9-3-1 in the last 13 Brewers road games. Milwaukee is 4-9 in its last 13 games overall.

San Francisco

The Giants are 17-6 in the last 23 meetings. The under is 18-8-1 in the last 27 San Francisco games overall.

Prediction: 

Milwaukee has righted the ship after a recent lengthy losing skid, while San Francisco is trending the other way with losses in six of its last eight. I'm willing to take a shot on the underdog here as the Brewers have already proven they can score at AT&T Park, while Bumgarner hasn't been always dominant since his return from the DL. Anderson has had an up-and-down season, but the ballpark boost will help him here. My advice is to take a shot on Milwaukee in this spot.
