Betting against the Indians and Yankees has been profitable so far. Brewers got up on the Dodgers in the first behind a Braun RBI double and never looked back. Chacin pitched another gem. That slider of his is unpredictable and funky. Travis Shaw hit a 2 out triple in the 6th and then scored on a wild pitch to make it 2-0 Brewers. Orlando Arcia added a two run homer in the 7th for some added insurance.
The Dodgers put up a fight in the 9th with a Turner single and then Machado double, but then Jeffress got Bellinger to pop out, walked Puig, and then struck out Grandal and Dozier. This Brewers bullpen is just too good. I know they have struggled some this postseason, but I wouldn’t bet against them. Knebel and Hader might be the best two relievers in baseball.
Red Sox at +118 for 3 units. Dallas Keuchel gave up 5 earned runs the last time he faced the Red Sox. That was also the last time he faced a playoff team. Keuchel has 9.15 career ERA against Boston. Nathan Eovaldi gave up 4 earned runs the last time he played the Astros, but that was in June when he pitched for the Rays. Eovaldi is a better pitcher at this point in the season. Both of these teams can hit, but I like Boston to take the series lead tonight. Last time the Red Sox were tied 1-1 in a series, they beat the Yankees 16-1.
Brewers at +138 for 3 units. Rich Hill gave up 2 earned runs in 4 and a third his last time out. Rich Hill is a slightly worse pitcher at home. The Brewers have won the last 6 games that Gio Gonzalez has pitched in for them. Austin Barnes will get the start over Yasmani. Yasmani had too many errors last game. The LA crowd got louder for Yasmani’s errors than anything positive their team did. Brewers pitching is so damn good. If Milwaukee gets up in this game, they will win again.
