Milwaukee is on fire right now having won four in a row, outscoring foes 25-4 in the process. Their bullpen has been forced to play just four innings over the span so they are obviously very fresh. This afternoon they go up against the worst team in the league. The Nats are 44-73 and just 21-40 on the road, scoring a paltry 3.8 runs per game. The Brewers are 22-3 the past two seasons at home against teams with an OBP of .315 or worse. The Nationals are just 16-40 this season in expected low-scoring games (totals posted under nine). They are also 2-14 after getting shut out. We'll take the Brewers in what should be an easy one for them.
