Betting Pick: Milwaukee Brewers vs. Houston Astros

The Milwaukee Brewers close out a two-game interleague series against the Houston Astros Wednesday night. Milwaukee swept a series over the weekend from the Pirates, prevailing 5-2 in the finale Sunday afternoon. Houston won the rubber game of their three-game set with the Orioles, taking a 4-0 victory on Sunday afternoon. The pitching matchup for Tuesday’s series opener saw Freddy Peralta take the mound for the Brewers against the Astros’ Brad Peacock.

Milwaukee won their fourth straight game as they rolled to the victory on Sunday afternoon to sweep the Pirates. The Brewers entered Tuesday’s action with a half-game edge over the Cubs in the NL Central race. Hernan Perez (two runs) led Milwaukee with three hits in the game while Mike Moustakas (his 20th) and Christian Yelich (his 24th) each homered in the triumph. Chase Anderson didn’t factor in the decision as he allowed two runs on four hits with one walk and six strikeouts over six innings. Jeremy Jeffress (1-0) earned the win with a scoreless eighth while Josh Hader worked around a walk to fan the side in the ninth for his 16th save.

Houston won for the eighth time in 10 games as they picked up the victory over the Orioles in the rubber game of that set. The Astros entered Tuesday holding a hefty nine-game advantage over the Rangers in the AL West race. Houston got two hits from Josh Reddick (RBI) while Yordan Alvarez cracked his first career big league homer in his major league debut. Wade Miley (6-3) earned the win as he threw six scoreless innings: he allowed six hits with two walks and five strikeouts. Roberto Osuna got the final out with two runners on to record his 17th save.
