Milwaukee vs Oakland by Sors
However, there is obvious improvement in Anderson’s performance over the last three weeks, as he’s allowed three or fewer runs in each of his last five starts, including 3 hits and 1 run over 5 2/3 innings of a 4-1 win at Philadelphia last Thursday, with six strikeouts.
The right-hander threw 13 2/3 solid innings in his last two starts at Miller Park, allowing 8 hits and 3 runs and striking out nine batter against the Chicago Cubs on May 18 (4-2) and the Reds eleven days later (6-7).
In addition to that, Anderson pitched well in his lone start versus Oakland, in which he yielded 5 hits and 2 runs through six innings of a 6-4 win at PETCO Park on Aug. 28, 2015, while with San Diego.
Marcus Semien hit two doubles in 2 at-bats off Anderson, Yonder Alonso is 2-for-7, with a double, 2 RBI and two walks against him, but Stephen Vogt, Billy Burns and Jake Smolinski are a combined 1-for-8.
Jesse Hahn (2-3 with a 6.10 ERA) will start for the A’s, who look to avoid fifth straight defeat and second in this series after Tuesday’s 4-5 loss.
Hahn yielded just 3 hits over 6 2/3 innings in his season debut against the Astros on April 30 (2-0), but had problems in most of his next five starts this year, surrendering four or more earned runs in three of those five outings.
The right-hander gave up a career-high 7 runs on 6 hits over 2/3 innings of a 2-12 loss at Houston last Friday and is 3-6 with a 5.81 ERA in his last ten road starts.
Hahn, for whom it will be first start against the Brewers, will get his first look at Ryan Braun (.335 BA, 9 HR, 33 RBI, .403 OBP), Jonathan Lucroy (.316 BA, 9 HR, 28 RBI, .374 OBP), Jonathan Villar (.301 BA, 5 HR, 25 RBI, .399 OBP) and Aaron Hill (.269 BA, 6 HR, 21 RBI, .349 OBP).
Oakland, on the other hand, continues without Danny Valencia (6-for-14, with a solo home run over his last four games), Josh Reddick (.322 BA, 5 HR, 18 RBI, .394 OBP) and Khris Davis (.234 BA, 14 HR, 36 RBI, .265 OBP).
I think that the Milwaukee Brewers will manage to win that game.
