The Milwaukee Brewers will play the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 2 of their series on Tuesday night at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri.

Brewers Preview

The Milwaukee Brewers are 23-18 this season and they have won three of their last four games. Prior to losing Game 1 in this series, Milwaukee won all three games in their series with the Royals. The Milwaukee pitching staff has a 4.08 ERA, a 1.28 WHIP, and a .242 opponent batting average this year. The Brewers offense has scored 180 runs with a .239 batting average and a .316 on base percentage. Rowdy Tellez is batting .256 with 10 home runs and 23 RBI’s for the Brewers. The projected starting pitcher for Milwaukee is Wade Miley, who is 3-2 with a 3.60 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP over 40.0 innings pitched this season.

Cardinals Preview

The St. Louis Cardinals are 17-25 this season and they have won seven of their last eight games. St. Louis won Game 1 in this series by a score of 18-1 on Monday night. The St. Louis pitching staff has a 4.46 ERA, a 1.46 WHIP, and a .270 opponent batting average. The Cardinals offense has scored 208 runs with a .264 batting average and a .335 on base percentage this season. Nolan Gorman is batting .283 with 10 home runs and 33 RBI’s for the Cardinals. The projected starting pitcher for St. Louis is Jordan Montgomery, who is 2-5 with a 4.11 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP over 46.0 innings pitched this year. 


Milwaukee is 5-3 in their last 8 games and 12-5 in their last 17 game two’s of a series. The under is 4-1 in Milwaukee’s last 5 Tuesday games. St. Louis is 7-1 in their last 8 games and 2-5 in their last 7 home games. The over is 10-1-1 in St. Louis’ last 12 home games. The under is 6-1 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.


The Cardinals were able to blow out the Brewers in Game 1 of this series and they scored 18 runs in the win. St. Louis has had a strong offensive attack this season, but their pitching has not been very good. The Cardinals will start Jordan Montgomery, who has allowed two earned runs or fewer in three of his last four starts, but did allow six earned runs to Chicago last time out. The Brewers will start Wade Miley, who has allowed three earned runs or fewer in four of his last five starts, but allowed seven earned runs in his last start. I like the over in this game.
