Schule's 10* MLB Total Recall TERMINATOR - *EARLY START*
San Diego vs. Milwaukee,
08/06/2015 14:10 EDT,
Score: 1 - 10
Total: -119/+8½ Under
This is a 10* play on [email protected] to go UNDER the total.
Since getting rid of two of their top hitters, the Brewers bats haven't been quite as potent. They've seen 11 of their last 13 games finish with a total of fewer than eight runs, and I expect to see another lower scoring game here this afternoon at Miller Park.
Matt Garza will toe the slab for the Brewers, and he's had a pretty rough season. Garza (5-12, 5.17 ERA) allowed three runs on four hits over six innings in a 4-2 home loss to the Cubs his last time out. He hasn't had many highlights this season, but when he has been good, it's usually been at home during the day. Those trends hold true throughout his career, as he's always had more success in day games.
The Padres hand the ball to Odrisamer Despaigne, who has been rather hit or miss. He comes in off back to back wins, allowing four runs on seven hits over 12 innings in a home and home set versus the Marlins.
The Park itself may provide a boost for both pitchers here in this matinee, as it's notoriously difficult to pick up the ball in the shadows during the day in Milwaukee. Ryan Braun has plenty to say about the matter: "It gets to the point where nobody enjoys playing day games here. It's good for pitchers, but you can't see the ball. It's, by far, worse than any other park in Major League Baseball."
His numbers would support his argument, as he's batting .241 during the day in comparison to .288 at night. The Brewers as a team rank 27th in the majors batting just .235 in day games. Much of those struggles would be attributed to the conditions in day games at their home park.
