Philadelphia Phillies vs Milwaukee Brewers (By: Mulder)
Jake Arrieta will start on the mound for the Phillies. Posted a 3.78 ERA but he pitched worse than that: 7.56 K/9, 3.42 BB/9.
In his split:
Versus Righties: .361 SLG> .299 wOBA
Versus Lefties: .455 SLG > .335 wOBA
So why is this interesting? The Brewers have a tremendous leftie lineup with Mous, Thames and Yelich who is hitting homers like it is nothing.
Last season against the Brewers: 8.31 ERA> 1.85 WHIP in 8.2 innings pitched.
For the Brewers Gio Gonzalez will take place on the mound and seems like he has his ACE form of a couple of years back. In 3 outings: 1.69 ERA. Not big K-power: 6.75 K/9, but watched him the last outings and he generated a lot of soft contact: 51.2 GB%, with great command: 2.25 BB/9 and he did not allow a homer.
Last season he posted a 5.40 ERA against the Phillies in 15 innings pitched.
-Brewers are 13-6 in the last 19 meetings in Philadelphia.
Super reliever Hader did not pitch yesterday so that is good news.
I think the Brewers are worth a play.
