Milwaukee Brewers (25-17, 15-8 Away) at Arizona Diamondbacks (24-17, 13-11 Home)

MLB: Wednesday, May 16, 2018, Chase Field, Phoenix, Arizona, 3:40 PM ET

The Milwaukee Brewers opened up the series with the Diamondbacks with a win and kept the top spot at the NL Central, where they are now with two wins ahead of the Pittsburgh Pirates and three more than the St. Louis Cardinals. On the other hand, the Arizona Diamondbacks continued with poor form and suffered sixth consecutive defeat, but thanks to the excellent displays earlier in the season, they are still the leading team of the NL West, but the Colorado Rockies and San Francisco Giants are right behind them in the standings.

The pitching matchup for Wednesday’s tilt will give us Brandon Woodruff for the Milwaukee Brewers against the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Matt Koch. First pitch was set for 3:40 PM ET.

The Brewers are hoping to close the series with a victory

Milwaukee recorded fourth win in five games in the current road trip as they lost just once to the Colorado Rockies, but after concluding the series in Denver with a win, the Brewers opened the series with the Diamondbacks with a 7-2 victory. The Brewers took an early 2-0 lead thanks to runs from   Manny Pina and Jonathan Villar, and although the hosts responded with a pair of runs in the fourth inning, the Brewers scored five unanswered runs to secure a comfortable 7-2 win.

Brandon Woodruff is listed as a starting pitcher against the Arizona Diamondbacks, and he’s coming from a 2-3 record in 2017, a 4.81 ERA, a 1.33 WHIP, 14 walks, and 32 strikeouts in eight games in total. Woodruff started two games in this season and has a win as he pitched 12 innings, allowing 19 hits and 11 runs with three walks and 11 strikeouts. The Brewers are 4-0 in Woodruffs last four road starts.

The Diamondbacks are eager to return to the previous form

Arizona is going through the worst run since the start of the new season as they didn’t have more than three defeats in a row until this negative run. The Diamondbacks suffered the sixth straight loss in the opening game of the series with Milwaukee and didn’t show any improvement on the pitch, recording just five hits and winning eight bases, so the visitors deservedly beat them, 7-2.

Matt Koch is set to start against the Milwaukee Brewers, and he’s coming from a 1-1 record in 2016, a 2.00 ERA, a 0.72 WHIP, four walks, and ten strikeouts in seven games overall. He didn’t play in a single inning last season, but started five games in this campaign and has two wins and a loss as he pitched 33 innings, allowing 25 hits and ten runs with eight walks and 20 strikeouts.

Trends:

Milwaukee:

  • 4-0 in their last four games vs. a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15
  • 9-1 in their last ten vs. National League West rivals
  • 4-1 in their last five games played on Wednesday
  • 4-1 in their last five games vs. a right-handed starter

Arizona:

  • 0-5 in their last five games played at home vs. a right-handed starter
  • 0-4 in their last four games played on Wednesday
  • 0-5 in their last five games vs. a right-handed starter

Milwaukee won six out of the previous nine H2H encounters including three out of the last four, while the Brewers were victorious in the past three meetings at the Chase Field. Arizona’s form is quite concerning and I don’t think Matt Koch has the quality to hand them a win on this one, so I am backing the in-form visitors to close the series with another victory here. For those who prefer playing on the points, over is 4-1 in the last five duels, while over is 5-1 in the previous six meetings in Arizona.

The Pick: Milwaukee
