Milwaukee Brewers at Houston Astros

Milwaukee is set to play the second game of a six-game road trip, as they are playing the fifth game of a 12-game stretch that sees them playing all divisional opponents.  The Brewers suffered a 5-0 shutout loss last night, dropping their record to 20-25 versus the NL Central (-760).  The team has gone 109-94 against divisional opponents the last three years (+560) and the total is 94-91 O/U in those contests.  The Brewers have played an equal amount of games at home and on the road, going 24-28 in both situations.  The team is actually hitting 21 points higher on the road (.270) that at home this year (.249).  Milwaukee is 21-22 this year when playing against a team with a losing record, but that mark is 7-3 since the All-Star break.  It’s also important to note that the team is 12-13 this month (-40) and 37-41 in July the last three years (-1,020).

Don’t expect a low-scoring contest in this battle between NL Central foes.

Houston Astros at Milwaukee Brewers

Houston fell 7-5 in the middle game of a three-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park.  The Astros came into the contest winners of four of their last six games, but now find themselves needing a victory to salvage an even record in June (13-14, +450).  Tuesday’s starting pitcher Brett Myers fell to 1-6 on the road, but carries a 4-0 record at home.  The right-hander came into the contest with a 4-1 mark and 1.94 ERA in nine previous appearances against the Brew Crew.  The Astros can definitely look forward to the calendar turning to Wednesday, as the team has captured eight straight games.  They are 9-3 overall on the day of the week, which is their best record of any day (+790).

The Yankees look to build on the second-best home record in baseball in the second-game of this interleague series.

Houston Astros at New York Yankees

Houston fell behind early on Friday evening by allowing three runs in the opening frame, dropping the first game of the series 4-3 in the Bronx.  The current road trip is the first of two back-to-back, 10-game road trips for the team.  On the road for 11 days, the current trip ties for the longest in terms of days that the club will make this season.  The Astros are 11-17 on the road this season (+280).  With an 8-3 record in June (+780), Houston is tied for second in the majors in winning percentage for the month (.727), tailing only the Mets (.778).  The middle of the lineup must produce to stay with the high-powered Yankees, as the No. 1-4 hitters are a combined 0-for-29 the last two games.
