Anderson outduels Bumgarner 

Milwaukee starting pitcher Chase Anderson was in fine form Friday night as he threw six innings of four-hit ball, giving up one earned run while striking out three and walking none. Corey Knebel threw a perfect inning with one strikeout for his 14th saves. Christian Yelich went 2-for-3 with two doubles, a walk and a run to help pace the Milwaukee offense in the 3-1 win. Ryan Braun went 1-for-5 with a run and two RBIs. 

Hanson has two-hit night

Giants second baseman Alen Hanson tried to spark the hosts in Friday's game as he finished 2-for-4 with a double. Buster Posey had a double and scored a run in four at-bats, while Brandon Crawford was 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI. Madison Bumgarner suffered the loss as he allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits with five strikeouts and one walk over eight innings of work.

Jhoulys Chacin (9-3, 3.58 ERA) will take the mound for Milwaukee tonight, while San Francisco will turn to Johnny Cueto (3-1, 2.76).

MLB Betting Trends 


The Brewers are 3-9 in their last 12 road games. Milwaukee is 13-5 in Chacin's last 18 starts. 

San Francisco

The Giants are 17-7 in the last 24 meetings. The over is 15-5-1 in Cueto's last 21 starts.


Milwaukee will beat you with timely timming, solid defense and a solid collection of arms. One of the arms is Chacin, who has been a pleasant surprise all season. While Cueto has mostly been sharp this season when healthy aside from a couple exceptions, he isn't likely to get much run support here with Chacin opposing him. A low-scoring game can be taken by anyone and I like Chacin plus the outstanding Milwaukee bullpen to win a third straight game in this series.
