The Milwaukee Brewers and San Francisco Giants face off on Thursday in an MLB showdown at American Family Field. This is a doubleheader and this is the preview for both games. 

The Brewers come into this game with a 71-65 record overall but they were defeated on Wednesday. The pitching really struggled giving up eight runs and that led to the defeat. The Brewers offense is averaging 4.53 runs per game which is 9th best in the league. Rowdy Tellez has been the top offensive player for this team hitting 28 home runs and driving in 78 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Giants who sit with a 66-69 record and their bullpen again really struggled again on Wednesday giving up a few runs and another big home run.  The pitching has been inconsistent and they are giving up 4.41 runs per game which is 18th in the league. Joc Pederson is having a strong season hitting 21 home runs and driving in 61 RBIs so far this season. 

On the mound for the Giants in Game 1 is Jakob Junis who sits with a 4-4 record and an ERA of 4.05. In his last start against the Philadelphia Phillies, he went 4.1 innings giving up seven hits and three runs. 

On the mound for the Brewers in Game 1 is Corbin Burnes who sits with a 9-6 record and an ERA of 3.02. In his last start, he went 5.2 innings giving up seven hits and five runs. 

Getting the start for the Brewers in Game 2 will be Freddy Peralta who sits with a 4-3 record and an ERA of 3.56.

In Game 1 I expect plenty of scoring. Junis is coming off a start where he gave up seven hits and three runs, and Burnes also struggled giving up five runs. Look for both offenses to find success off the opponents pitching and the over will cash. 

In Game 2 I expect it will be the Brewers that find success. I trust Peralta who sits with an ERA of 3.56 and the Giants bats are going to have one of their games where they really struggle to score. Back the Brewers on the run line.

Shane’s Pick Game 1: Over / Game 2: Brewers -1.5
