Score: 3 - 2
Money Line: -123 Milwaukee
*4 Star Play on Brewers ML* The Milwaukee Brewers have lost the first two games in this series. Atlanta has been a streaky team this year. The Braves have a very good lineup. Atlanta also has a clear weakness in the bullpen.
Milwaukee starts Brandon Woodruff here. Woodruff has a 3.72 ERA and a 2.99 FIP on the season thus far. Woodruff has an impressive 10.9% swinging strike rate, and he has been pitching his best in his last few outings.
Mike Foltynewicz starts for the Braves, and he has been terrible so far this season. He didn't have a Spring Training because of an injury. He threw four games in Triple A and was hit around. He has started four games in the majors and brings an 8.02 ERA and 7.94 FIP into this one. Foltynewicz is giving up a lot of hard contact, and this is a good Brewers lineup he must try to navigate through here. Until he can show something positive, I see him as a fade candidate. His velocity is more than 2 mph slower than last year right now. He's either hurt or something mechanically is off.
The Brewers have the better bullpen and they are looking to salvage a game in this series.
The Braves are only 3-13 in Foltynewicz's last 16 home starts vs. a team with a winning record.
