Milwaukee vs Colorado by Sors
The right-hander went 5-7 with a 3.62 ERA in eighteen games before the All-Star break, but is 0-6 with an 8.04 ERA over his last six, surrendering six earned runs in three of his previous four starts in August.
In the matter of fact, Nelson posted a 2.79 ERA in thirteen home contests this year, but considering his current form I think that he might have problems against the Rockies, who have averaged 6.90 runs in their last ten games (5-5).
JD LeMahieu hit safely in nine of his last ten games, David Dahl went 4-for-12 with a solo home run over his past three games, Nick Hundley went 4-for-11, with a double and a solo home run over his last three games, Gerardo Parra has 5 hits in his last 20 at-bats, with two doubles, triple and 4 RBI, while Nolan Arenado went 4-for-5, with 2 HR and 6 RBI in Sunday’s 11-4 win against the Cubs.
Colorado turns to Chad Bettis (10-6 with a 5.29 ERA) for Monday’s series opener.
The right-hander pitched well in most of his seven starts after the All-Star break, as he’s allowed three earned runs or fewer in six of those seven outings and lasted at least six innings in five of them.
Bettis posted a 5.20 ERA in eleven road contests this year, though it should be noted that he gave up three or fewer runs in three of his last four road starts.The 27-year-old pitcher threw 6 1/3 innings in his lone starts against the Brewers, surrendering 5 hits and 1 run of a 5-1 home win on June 20, 2015, with five strikeouts.
Ryan Braun, Chris Carter and Scooter Gennett are a combined 0-for-8 against him.
I think that the Colorado Rockies will manage to win that game.
