Brewers win fifth straight

Milwaukee moved closer to a playoff spot Tuesday night with a 4-2 win at Cincinnati to improve to 87-70 overall and 38-38 on the road. Ryan Braun helped pace the Brewers offense as he finished 2-for-3 with a solo home run. Yasmani Grandal ended the game 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and an RBI. Orlando Arcia was 2-for-4 with a run scored. Brent Suter picked up the win in relief as he gave up three hits with three strikeouts and one walk over three scoreless frames. Josh Hader notched the save as he gave up two hits with one strikeout and no walks in one scoreless inning. Jordan Lyles will start today for Milwaukee as he enters with an 11-7 record, 4.17 ERA and 1.33 WHIP plus 140 strikeouts over 136 innings pitched.

Votto has two-hit night

Cincinnati was doubled up by a count of 4-2 at home Tuesday night against Milwaukee to drop to 73-84 overall and 41-38 at home. Joey Votto helped pace the Reds offensively as he ended the contest 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored. Aristides Aquino went 1-for-4 with a double, a run and an RBI. Jose Peraza was 2-for-4 with a double. Sonny Gray took the loss as he allowed three earned runs on three hits with six strikeouts and two walks over five innings. Tyler Mahle draws the start tonight for Cincinnati as he comes in with a 2-11 record, 4.93 ERA and 1.28 WHIP plus 123 strikeouts over 122 1/3 innings of work.

MLB Betting Trends

Milwaukee

The Brewers are 9-1 in their last 10 road games. Milwaukee is 8-1 in its last nine Wednesday games.

Cincinnati

The Reds are 4-1 in their last five Wednesday games. Cincinnati is 6-22 in the last 28 Mahle starts.

Prediction:

The Brewers will clinch an NL Wild Card spot with a win tonight or a loss by both the Cubs and the Mets. With Milwaukee also trailing Washington by only a game, home-field advantage in the Wild Card Game is also within the realm of possibilities. With a lot on the line, the Brewers aren't about to lose focus anytime soon. Lyles has been better than his numbers suggest this season, while Mahle also has been. I'll take the starting pitcher who is backed by the better team and one that has played much better on the road this month.
