When healthy and pitching at home Ben Sheets is always worth a look. Sheets is having an All-Star season at 7-1 with a 2.72 ERA, producing quality starts in 11 of 13 outings as the Brewers have won four of his last five trips to the mound. Shawn Marcum has been equally impressive for the Jays as he brings an ERA of 2.43 to this contest. The problem is that the Jays are having trouble producing runs, losing four of his last five starts. Recently, the offense has been even worse scoring just 15 runs in their last seven games or just better than two per game. It has now left them scoring three runs or less in 36 games or 50% of the time this season. When facing a quality pitcher like Sheets, and not being able to score, makes it tougher still to find the win column, so we ride the Brewers at home.
