Fargo's 10* MLB Friday Sweet Spot (156-114 MLB Run)
2018-10-19 20:35:00

This is a play on the MILWAUKEE BREWERS for our MLB Friday Sweet Spot. This has been a very even NLCS with the Dodgers having gotten the majority of the breaks but certainly nothing substantial. Based on this line, Milwaukee is getting no credit for its home field where it is 54-31 on the season and its 51 home wins were tied with the Cubs for most in the National League. Pitching has not been the problem for the Brewers in this series. Their starters have a 1.29 ERA through the first five games against the Dodgers although that is in limited action but overall, Brewers pitchers have a 3.02 ERA and a .220 average against, and the Dodgers have a 2.81 ERA and a .219 average against so it is pretty even. The difference has been in the clutch which can easily shift. Los Angeles is 10-for-43 with runners in scoring position and an .807 OPS after the sixth inning compared to the Brewers which are 5-for-35 with runners in scoring position and a .592 OPS after the sixth inning. With two one-run losses, Milwaukee could easily be up 3-2 in this series instead of needing to win the final two games to make it to the World Series. Wade Miley will be making his second straight start after getting pulled in Game Five after facing one batter where he issued a walk. That was the plan and now he will be asked to stretch it out. When allowed to go longer, Miley has been great this October as he is unscored upon across 10.1 innings, including 5.2 innings against the Dodgers in Game Two. Hyun-Jin Ryu was average in Game Two, allowing six hits and two runs in 4.1 innings. He has not been great on the road in limited action all season as he has a 3.66 ERA in 32 innings where he has allowed seven home runs. The Dodgers are 2-11 in his last 13 road starts against teams with a winning record while the Brewers are 8-0 in their last eight games following an off day. 10* (958) Milwaukee Brewers
