Rickenbach MLB *8* OVER 9 runs -105 in Milwaukee vs Los Angeles Angels @ 7:20 ET - Jered Weaver gets this start for the Angels and, while he "only" allowed 9 hits in 6 innings in his most recent start, most of the hits were extra base hits! In fact the veteran right-hander was somewhat fortunate that he only allowed 4 earned runs in that start. Keep in mind that start came against a Royals team that is not hitting the ball well at all early this season. Monday Weaver will be facing a Brewers club that got their sticks going in yesterday's 14-5 blowout win. That was the 6th time in the last 11 games that Milwaukee had scored at least 5 runs in a game. The Brewers are averaging 5 runs per game at home this season and they should get to Weaver early and often in this one. Milwaukee sends Jimmy Nelson to the mound Monday. The Brewers right-hander has allowed 16 hits and 9 walks in his last 18 innings of work and that includes getting hit hard in an inter-league start against the Twins two starts back and Nelson was at home for that start just like he is for tonight's interleague start. Look for him to get roughed up again here as the Angels are off of a 9-6 win at Texas yesterday and have now won 5 of their last 8 games thanks in part to an offense that is averaging 5 runs per game during this stretch. Each teams bullpen has had some struggles too with both pens blowing 3 of their 9 save opportunities so far this season. The over is 5-1 in Brewers interleague games this season and 28-17 in games against the AL the past 3 seasons combined. The over is 13-5 in Brewers games with a posted total of 9 or 9.5 runs the past three seasons combined. Look for the Milwaukee over to improve to 12-4 this season in games against right-handed starters. *8* OVER in Milwaukee
