Milwaukee Brewers (54-37) at Miami Marlins (38-55)

When and Where: Wednesday, July 11, Miami, Florida, 7:10 P.M. EST

The Milwaukee Brewers and Miami Marlins will play the final game of their series this Wednesday evening in Florida. The Brewers are leading the NL Central but are just 1.5 games ahead of the Chicago Cubs. The Marlins are still in last place in the NL East and are 14 games out of the lead. A win on Wednesday could push them into fourth place over the Mets.

Milwaukee’s pitching continues its dominance

The Milwaukee Brewers are still holding onto first place in the NL Central. They have been at war with the Chicago Cubs for the entirety of this season and with 1.5 games games between the two teams, the battle will continue. Milwaukee has an average offense with some very powerful pieces at the top. Jesus Aguilar has been the best player on the Brewers this year, hitting .305 with 23 home runs and 64 RBI. He ranks in the top five in baseball in both home runs and RBI. Aguilar’s hitting is complimented by Travis Shaw who has 19 doubles, 15 home runs, and 51 RBI on the season.

Milwaukee has scheduled to start Freddy Peralta this Wednesday afternoon on the road. He has only started six games this year but has been great with a 4-1 record and a 2.14 ERA. Since entering the rotation, the rookie, Peralta, has not given up more than five hits in a single game. Milwaukee also has one of the best bullpens around led by Jeremy Jeffress who holds a 6-1 record with a 1.02 ERA and 0.81 WHIP in his 43 appearances. Josh Hader has been outstanding as well with a 2-0 record and 1.50 ERA and a 0.82 WHIP. Overall, the Brewers have the sixth best total ERA in the MLB.

Marlins prospects hint toward a bright future

The Miami Marlins are still hanging out in last place in the NL East but they are gaining ground on the Mets. They are just a half game behind New York and could get out of last place for the first time in a long time. Miami is showing some promise thanks to their home grown problem. Brian Anderson is one of the most promising rookies in baseball. He leads the Marlins offense with a .284 batting average with 22 doubles and 45 RBI. Miami’s homegrown catcher, JT Realmuto is also breaking out. He has put together a .317 batting average with 12 home runs and 44 RBI in just 66 games.

Dan Straily is scheduled to start for the Miami Marlins at home. He is 3-4 on the season with a 4.55 ERA in 13 starts. Straily has improved recently, giving up six or more innings and allowing three or less runs in each of his last three starts. Things do not get much better in the bullpen, but once again, some young homegrown pitchers lead the charge. Kyle Barraclough has appeared in 42 games, notching eight saves and holding a 1.34 ERA. Drew Steckenrider is also coming into his own. He is the most used pitcher on the roster with a 3-1 record in 44 games with a 3.10 ERA.

Trends:

Brewers:

  • 5-1 in Peralta’s last six starts
  • 9-3 in last 12 Wednesday games

Marlins:

  • 1-7 in Straily’s last eight starts
  • 2-5 in last seven games vs. NL Central

The Miami Marlins have a bright future but the Brewers’ time is right now. Milwaukee has some very powerful hitters while Miami has one of the worst scoring offenses in all of baseball. The Brewers are also giving the ball to a confident young pitcher who has been on a roll lately. To add onto that, he has one of the best bullpens in the league at his back which could easily shut down the Miami lineup.
