Money Line: -108 Milwaukee

Result: Loss

This is a 10* SITUATIONAL DESTRUCTION on the Milwaukee Brewers.

If you’re a Brewers fan, it’s time to hit the panic button, Milwaukee will look to avoid its longest losing streak in four years today and snap its seven-game slide. The Brew Crew is now two games behind the Cardinals for the NL Central lead: "We have to get back to the way we played the majority of the first five months," said slugger Ryan Braun last night. "We have to go out there and continue to compete every day and it will turn around at some point." The visitors turn to Matt Garza (7-7, 3.58 ERA) who returns to throw for the first time since early August; Garza has allowed two or fewer runs five times in his last six starts and two with eight hits over 21 innings while going 1-0 over his last three (note that Garza is 1-1 with a very respectable 3.21 ERA vs. his former team this season; also note that he’s 12-8 with a 2.74 ERA in 29 starts at Wrigley). The Cubbies send out Kyle Hendricks (5-1, 1.91 ERA) who gave up two runs in a 7-2 win over the Cards on Friday; Hendricks would give up six hits over 7 1/3’s innigns of a 3-0 home win over the Brewers back on August 12th, but I think will finally have his hands full today vs. this highly focused and clearly under acheiving Brewers lineup. I think the desperation level in which MILWAUKEE plays with today will turn out to be the difference, great line value here.
