Braun socks grand slam in clincher

Milwaukee clinched an NL Wild Card bid Wednesday night at Cincinnati with a 9-2 victory to improve to 88-70 overall and 39-38 on the road. Ryan Braun helped pace the Brewers offense as he finished 1-for-2 with a grand slam, a walk and two runs scored. Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-5 with a double and a run. Marcus Thames was 2-for-5 with a solo homer. Keston Hiura ended the game 2-for-5 with a solo homer and two runs scored. Jordan Lyles notched the win as he gave up two earned runs on three hits with six strikeouts and two walks over five innings. Chase Anderson will start today for Milwaukee as he enters with a 7-4 record, 4.30 ERA and 1.26 WHIP plus 122 strikeouts over 134 innings pitched.

Suarez homers in loss

Cincinnati fell by a count of 9-2 at home against Milwaukee Wednesday night to drop to 73-85 overall and 41-39 at home. Eugenio Suarez led the Reds offensively as he finished 2-for-3 with a solo home run plus a walk. Tucker Barnhart went 2-for-2 with two doubles, two walks and an RBI. Jose Peraza ended the game 1-for-4. Tyler Mahle took the loss as he surrendered eight runs (seven earned) on seven hits with one strikeout and three walks over 2 1/3 innings of work. Luis Castillo gets the start today for Cincinnati as he enters with a 15-7 record, 3.25 ERA and 1.13 WHIP plus 218 strikeouts over 185 2/3 innings.

MLB Betting Trends

Milwaukee

 

The Brewers are 7-0 in their last seven games versus the NL Central. Milwaukee is 21-6 in its last 27 games overall.

Cincinnati

The Reds are 4-0 in the last four Castillo Thursday starts. Cincinnati is 2-6 in its last eight home games.

Prediction:

The Brewers are on fire, but the day after clinching a Wild Card spot and going up against a very talented pitcher in Castillo screams letdown to me. With no lines released overnight, it might be because oddsmakers aren't certain that Anderson will be taking the mound. With Milwaukee still fighting for home field in the Wild Card game, there is plenty to play for. Even so, a little extra rest for key guys is probably a smart idea. Regardless of how the Brewers approach this game, I don't like the quick turnaround facing a quality pitcher on the road after such a big high.
