4* Heavy Hitter on Milwaukee Brewers -
San Francisco vs. Milwaukee,
04/17/2013 20:10 EDT,
Score: 3 - 4
Money Line: -116 Milwaukee
The San Francisco bullpen is tapped out for today’s game because Barry Zito went out last night after pitching just 2.2 innings. That should mean big trouble for the Giants considering today’s starter, Ryan Vogelsong, is averaging just 5.7 innings per start. In 11.3 innings pitched Vogelsong has given up 17 hits and 9 earned runs. Vogelsong has not had much luck against Milwaukee in his career averaging a 6.18 ERA and 1.662 WHIP. The Brewers offense is heating up, coming off a 10 run performance last night against the Giants. This matchup falls into a system to play on a team like Milwaukee when the money line is +125 to -125 and they are a good fielding team turning 1.1 or more double plays per game on the season and coming off a performance scoring 10 runs or more. This system is 49-17 (74%) over the last 5 seasons.
