Milwaukee vs LA Dodgers (By: Mulder)
So Miley faced just one (!) batter in his last start. And that was just a walk. Crazy thing is that he was not even injured as Craig Counsell wanted to play the rightie lineup. For me unreal as i never saw this, not with a starting pitcher anyway, even if you wanna make a bullpen day. Besides, it did not work out really well as Milwaukee lost 5-2.
Miley owned the Dodgers a few days ago with no runs allowed on just two hits, 0 BB and 3 SO. So now a total of 18+ ( including the regular season ) scoreless innings against the Dodgers this season. Indeed, the Dodgers could not score a single run off him this season.
Are we suprised? yes and no. Yes because Miley is pitching to contact and No since the Dodgers, as i mentioned before, are not THAT good against LHP> ranked 14th in the regular season.
For LA also a lefty in RYU on the mound. Was tremendous in Atlanta with 7 shutout innings, 8K. In Milwaukee though last week, the Brewers figured him out with 2 earned runs on 6 hits in just 4.1 innings. Ryu had not his best stuff with 4K.
In the regular season Ryu had a 1.97 ERA, 9.73K/9, but on the road he pitched worse all season long> 3.58 ERA and he pitched even worse than that.
That Brewer bullpen got hit hard this series and hence the first half option.
By players, for players
