Julio Teheran continues to not get run support
Julio Teheran has pitched pretty well this season but he hasn’t gotten a ton of run support. Coming into this game he sits with a 2-4 record and an ERA of 3.75. In his last start against the Braves he looked good going six innings and giving up only one run. There wasn’t a whole lot of run support though and the Brewers ended up losing 4-2. The Brewers are averaging 4.11 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.14 runs per game. The pitching is ranked 6th overall but the offense has let them down all season.
Braves slumping a bit?
The Braves lost two games in a row against the Boston Red Sox, and the offense during those two games only scored four runs. The Braves are averaging 5.54 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.14 runs per game. The offense is ranked 3rd while the pitching is ranked 7th. Matt Olson has hit 32 home runs and driven in 80 RBIs. Ozzie Albies has also been good hitting 24 home runs and driving in 72 RBIs. Bryce Elder sits with a 7-2 record and an ERA of 3.30. In two of Elder’s last three starts he has given up seven runs.
Shane’s Free Pick
This game is going to be a pitchers duel. Teheran has been good heading into this game, and he’s going to lockdown again in this game. The Brewers offense is averaging only 4.11 runs per game and they are going to have some major issues getting any type of offense going against Elder. Both offenses are going to really struggle to get any type of offense going here, and this game is going to stay under the total.
