The Milwaukee Brewers, currently standing at 40-37, find themselves just below .500 on the road. However, they are determined to turn the tide and close in on the scorching Cincinnati Reds, who hold a narrow half-game lead in the division standings.
In their previous outing, the Brewers secured a hard-fought 5-4 road victory against the Cleveland team. Owen Miller emerged as the hero, delivering a clutch RBI double in the tenth inning to seal the win. This momentum-boosting triumph sets the stage for an intense clash against the Mets.
Colin Rea to take the mound for the Brewers.
Taking the mound for the Brewers is the seasoned right-handed pitcher Colin Rea. With a 3-4 record and a 4.88 ERA, Rea is prepared to showcase his skills and help guide his team to victory. In his most recent start, Rea pitched 5.1 innings, surrendering seven hits and five runs (four earned), resulting in a 7-5 home win against the Arizona squad.
Offensively, the Brewers have been making waves, scoring 14 runs in their last three games. They have notched four or more runs in six of their previous nine contests, demonstrating their ability to put runs on the board consistently. Leading the charge is Christian Yelich, who boasts 74 hits and 34 RBIs for the season. Additionally, the dynamic duo of Owen Miller and Brian Anderson has combined for an impressive 111 hits and 55 RBIs, providing valuable offensive contributions.
As the Brewers aim to extend their winning streak to seven games when scoring four or more runs, all eyes will be on Colin Rea as he takes the mound against the Mets. This will be Rea’s second career game against the New York squad, adding an extra layer of anticipation to this crucial matchup.
Players to watch: Christian Yelich LF (GP 74, AB 274, R 52, H 74, 2B 15, 3B 1, HR 9, RBI 34, TB 118, BB 37, SO 73, SB 17, AVG 0.27, OBP 0.363, SLG 0.431, OPS 0.794, WAR 1.9, Brian Anderson 3B (GP 74, AB 251, R 31, H 55, 2B 10, 3B 1, HR 9, RBI 34, TB 94, BB 34, SO 83, SB 0, AVG 0.219, OBP 0.32, SLG 0.375, OPS 0.694, WAR 0.7
New York Mets
The Mets, who have dropped a discouraging 15 of their last 20 games, find themselves in a slump that has puzzled fans and analysts. In their previous outing against Philadelphia, relief pitcher Jeff Brigham (0-2) hit consecutive batters with the bases loaded, resulting in a demoralizing 7-6 road loss. Despite the efforts of Francisco Lindor and Pete Alonso, who hit home runs number 15 and 24, respectively, the Mets could not capitalize on their opportunities, leaving ten men stranded on base.
Justin Verlander to take the mound.
In an effort to turn things around, New York manager Buck Showalter will call upon the seasoned veteran, three-time Cy Young Award winner Justin Verlander, to take the mound on Monday. With a 2-4 record and a 4.50 ERA, Verlander aims to showcase his prowess and provide a much-needed boost for the Mets. In his most recent start, Verlander allowed four runs in seven innings during a 4-2 road loss against Houston. With his vast experience and impressive track record, Verlander’s presence brings hope to the struggling Mets.
Offensively, the Mets have shown signs of life and scored 11 runs in their last three games. They have scored four or more runs in five out of their last seven contests, demonstrating their ability to put runs on the board. Leading the charge is Brandon Nimmo, who boasts an impressive 83 hits and 35 RBIs for the season. Additionally, the dynamic duo of Jeff McNeil and Starling Marte has combined for an impressive 138 hits and 45 RBIs, providing valuable offensive contributions.
Players to watch: Brandon Nimmo CF (GP 75, AB 293, R 42, H 83, 2B 12, 3B 4, HR 8, RBI 35, TB 127, BB 37, SO 77, SB 3, AVG 0.283, OBP 0.374, SLG 0.433, OPS 0.807, WAR 1.8, Francisco Lindor SS (GP 77, AB 289, R 45, H 64, 2B 19, 3B 0, HR 15, RBI 52, TB 128, BB 31, SO 75, SB 9, AVG 0.221, OBP 0.306, SLG 0.443, OPS 0.749, WAR 2.1
