Milwaukee’s pitchers have surprisingly been able to get the best of this Washington lineup over the course of the last couple of days, holding the Nationals down to just a total of one run in the process. This is a truly stark contrast from what we have been seeing out of the Nats of late, as they plated 23 runs over the course of their two prior games. Call us skeptics, but we just aren’t believers in the Brewers. We think that they have become the worst money team in baseball for a reason, and we think that they are destined to ultimately not win this series in spite of the fact that they have won two of the first three games. It is only a matter of time until Washington starts to take some advantage of the men left in scoring position. It’s not a sin to leave eight men in scoring position with two outs in two games, but when you only have one run, and that came off of a solo homer, that’s poor clutch hitting. In this one, the Brewers are essentially throwing out there a relief pitcher in RHP Donovan Hand. Hand has started twice, but he hasn’t lasted longer than five innings in either game. Odds have it, he won’t be around all that long in this one either. As a result, in spite of the fact that a pitcher that only just came out of AA a week and a half ago, RHP Taylor Jordan will be on the mound, we want Washington on the run-line in this game. This is the spot for a big time blowout to occur, and we want in on it. Don’t be shy about a -2.5 alternate run-line either.
