Milwaukee Brewers Recap

The Milwaukee Brewers come into this one looking to build on their series-opening 10-0 blowout win over the Tigers in Friday’s matchup, a resounding bounce back performance after being swept by the Phillies to start the week in a series where the Brewers scored just two runs combined in three games.

William Contreras leads the Brewers with 79 hits including 17 doubles and 46 RBIs along with 8 home runs and a .379 OBP while Rhys Hoskins has a team-high 10 home runs with 28 RBIs and Willy Adames has a team-high 17 doubles with 9 home runs and 42 RBIs. Brice Turang leads the Brewers with 22 stolen bases while Adames has a team-high 63 strikeouts as well this season.

Milwaukee Brewers vs Detroit Tigers Prediction

I’m on the Brewers here. I get the allure of backing the Tigers in the underdog role, but the problem is that Casey Mize has been ineffective more often than not this season and he’s been kind of hard to back and feel confident about. The Tigers are solid against righties overall, but Freddy Peralta has gone back to pitching at an ace level and I think he does enough to help Milwaukee build on their solid showing on Friday and helps guide his team to another win here. Give me the Brew Crew.
