San Francisco vs Milwaukee: Giants Ace Bumgarner Battles the Brewers
San Francisco Giants: Surging Champs are back in contention
Perhaps a case of the dreaded World Series “hangover” San Francisco stumbled out the starting gate with a 9-13 record in April. May has been a different story though as the Giants have posted a 17-7 record and are now just two games behind the Dodgers in what is becoming a two-horse race in the NL West. World Series MVP LHP Madison Bumgarner was part of the rough start as he was sporting a 5.29 ERA after his first three outings. Since then, during his last six starts, MadBum as allowed eight runs over 40 innings pitched and his ERA has dropped to 2.84 overall.
Milwaukee Brewers: Bumbling Brew Crew sit last overall in the Majors
Tagged with a +5000 World Series Championship preseason price, Milwaukee is living up to their lowly expectations. Thanks in large part to their 2-13 season start; the Brewers are 13.5 games behind St. Louis in the NL Central and nine games out of the NL Wild Card race. Milwaukee owns the worst team batting average in the Majors (.226) and they are third last with 382 strikeouts. The pitching staff shares the blame for the rough start as they have given up a MLB leading 229 runs and they are sporting a 4.57 team ERA which is second last to the 4.97 mark posted by Colorado.
Giants vs Brewers Prediction: Brewers RHP Matt Garza (2-6 ERA 5.71) duels Bumgarner in the battle on the bump tonight. Garza has been a gas can during his last two starts as he has allowed 14 runs on 15 hits over just 9.2 innings pitched. We are slightly surprised by the moderate prices on Bumgarner and the Giants here.
