Tampa Bay Rays vs Milwaukee Brewers Prediction

I’ll probably stay with the Brewers here. Peralta does need a good bounce-back start, though. In his last outing versus the Pirates, Peralta struggled on five earned, five hits and five walks in 4.2 innings during a no-decision. In his two starts prior to that however, Peralta put up just one earned in 12.0 innings on nine hits and two walks.

On Monday in the opener, the Brewers had a pretty rough offensive day on just three hits. The good news is that the pitching came through with a strong effort, but it was wasted in the difficult loss. I like Milwaukee to even things up on Tuesday if all goes well, but it may be another close, low-scoring game.
