7* Friday MLB LAD/MIL
Milwaukee vs. LA Dodgers,
04/26/2013 22:10 EDT,
Score: 5 - 7
Money Line: +141 Milwaukee
The Los Angeles Dodgers host the Milwaukee Brewers in game one of a three-game set on Friday. The Dodgers are coming off a 3-2 win over the Mets, while the Brewers dropped their last game to the Padres, 2-1.
Milwaukee’s loss to San Diego on Wednesday halted a nine-game winning streak. The team has scored 5.3 runs per game over their last 10 contests, and will look to get back to their winning ways against the Dodgers.
Beckett has a 4.68 ERA thus far this season, but the issue he’s had has come when his team has been at the plate.
Beckett’s motivation to win was put into serious question last season, and it seems his new teammates haven’t been willing to give him the type of support he needs.
In 11 starts with the Dodgers, Beckett has received just 24 runs of support.
Beckett has an 8.84 ERA in his career when facing the Brewers, allowing Ryan Braun to homer twice the last time they met.
The Brewers counter with Hiram Burgos, who earned himself another start after a solid performance in his last outing, which was his major league debut.
Burgos allowed one earned run on five hits over five innings in a 5-1 win over the Cubs.
The Brewers are 9-2 in the last 11 meetings between these teams. Take Milwaukee.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
