Seattle will try and beat Milwaukee again on Wednesday in Game 2 of their three-game series at Miller Park. In Game 1, the Mariners topped Milwaukee by an 8-3 final score. First pitch for Wednesday is set for 8:00 P.M ET. The game will be available nationally on ESPN+.

Mariners Getting Hot Again

At the outset of the 2019 regular season, the hottest team in baseball was the Seattle Mariners. They won 13 of their first 15 games, including sweeps of the Angels, Royals, Red Sox, and A’s, but then it went downhill fast, unfortunately. Over their next 49 games, they’d go just 12-37, falling to 25-39 on the year.

Since then, however, things slowly started to change. They traded wins for a few weeks before hitting their stride this past week. Dating back to last Wednesday, they’ve won five of six, including a sweep of the Orioles and a win in Game 1 of their current series with Milwaukee.

Seattle is now 36-47 on the season.

Recent success can be attributed to their offense, which has scored 40 runs, hit .283 as a team, and smacked 22 extra-base hits during their 5-1 hot streak. Domingo Santana, who’s hit .409 this past week, had four of those home runs, while J.P Crawford had a team-best 10 hits and .416 batting average.

The Mariners will try and continue their hot hitting on Wednesday against Adrian Houser, a right-handed pitcher who has only started two games this year.

Brewers Hoping to Get Back on Track

Unlike Seattle, who are just finding their footing, the Brewers are slipping at the moment. They’ve lost eight of their last eleven games, including a three-game sweep at the hands of San Diego, to bring their overall record to 42-37. This, of course, comes after starting the year 7-1, and eventually 39-29.

Both sides of the coin have struggled. Over their last seven days, the Brewers have hit just .229 on offense, while their pitching staff has allowed opposing offenses to score 40 runs and hit .274. Travis Shaw, who was a huge part of the Brewers offense the last two year, hitting 30-plus homers in each, has hurt the team’s production recently. Since June 17th, he’s played a lot but he’s only collected two hits in over 20 at-bats. On the season, he’s on pace to hit just .166 with 12 home runs.

Luckily, last year’s NL MVP Christian Yelich is keeping them respectable, even during their struggles. He has the most hits (9), home runs (3), and total bases (20) over the last seven days for Milwaukee.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Although the Mariners won Game 1 and have a little hot streak going, it’s not sustainable. They’ve already given up on the season, even shipping their best power hitter to New York (E. Encarnacion). The Brewers, on the other hand, are a team built to win long term, and they will, starting on Wednesday. They’re great at home and they’ll be facing a very hittable pitcher in Wade LeBlanc, who has an ERA north of 10.00 in his last three starts. This is a must-play on Wednesday night.

Prediction: Milwaukee Brewers

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The Brewers are overdue for a big-time victory, which will surely come on Wednesday. Their opponent, Seattle, has hit well recently but this isn’t a juggernaut of an offense and they’ll face a stiff test. Adrian Houser has started just twice this year at the MLB level but he’s been great overall, pitching to a 2.27 ERA, and he’s no stranger to the role of starter. In Triple-A this year, he started four games and was masterful in 21-plus innings, maintaining a 1.27 ERA. Take the under here. Milwaukee wins 5-1.
