Milwaukee vs. Chi Cubs,
08/28/2012 20:05 EDT,
Score: 4 - 1
Money Line: -166 Milwaukee
Today's winner is Milwaukee on the RUN LINE over Chicago. This is my MLB Run Line GoM.
Milwaukee owns Chicago, taking 11 of the 14 meetings over the Cubs this season. They have won 6 straight in the series, including a 15-4 thumping LN. In their current 6 game run over Chicago, Milwaukee has outscored them 44-16. The Cubs have thrown up the white flag on the season. The team has been "experimenting" with young players, new lineups, and even put in OF, Joe Mather to pitch the other night. The Brewers have posted 5 or more runs in 12 of their L16 contests. Ryan Braun leads the NL with 35 HRs while Aramis Ramirez has driven in 9 RBI's in the L4 games. Chicago ranks 29th in RPG (3.73), 26th in BA (.241), and 23rd in HRs (108). Their lineup is an embarrassment. Yovani Gallard gets the start for Milwaukee. The RH is 5-0 with a 2.02 ERA in his L5 starts and boasts a career record of 6-2 vs. the Cubs. Chi-town sends Travis Wood to the bump. The LH is 4-10 this season, including an 0-7 mark in his L8 starts. The Brewers are 4-1 their L5 games played at the Cubs, 7-2 in Gallardo's L9 starts against the Cubs, and 4-0 their L4 games played as a favorite. The Cubs are 8-22 their L30 games played vs. RH starters, 0-8 in Wood's L8overall starts, and 6-20 their L26 overall contests. take Milwaukee on the RUN LINE. Thank you.
