Colorado at Milwaukee

1 unit on Milwaukee -148 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.68) RESULT: LOSS
Colorado has been a bad road team for a while, 9-43 in their last 52 road games. This is a tough park to pitch in and the Rockies must deal with improving the worst pitching staff in baseball, which posted a 4.84 ERA last season, more than a run over the major league average. Colorado goes with journeyman Kyle Kendrick (10-13, 4.61 ERA in 2014), and the 30-year-old is 2-5 with a 4.98 ERA in 10 career appearances against Milwaukee. The Brewers have plenty of offensive punch and are 69-22 as a favorite of -145 to -200. Milwaukee righty Kyle Lohse (2014: 13-9, 3.54) is 6-3 with a 3.64 ERA in 13 career starts against the Rockies. He's also 3-0 with a 1.61 ERA when not at Coors Field against Colorado, including a 3-2 victory last June 27 at Miller Park when he yielded one run in seven innings. The Brewers are 8-3 in Lohse's last 11 home starts, and the team is 6-1 against Colorado the last seven meetings. Play Milwaukee.
