Milwaukee Brewers (27-23, 1st Place-NL Central) at
New York Mets (21-27, 2nd Place-NL East, 8.5 GB)
Garza’s last win came against the Mets on the 12th, allowing just 2 runs on 5 hits in 6 innings during the Brewers 7-4 win, but is coming off a start where he allowed 6 runs on 7 hits in 5.1 innings against Toronto in and 8-4 loss. Gsellman makes his second start after spending 2 games in the bullpen after he allowed 6 runs on 9 hits in 4 innings in Milwaukee on the 12th. He was a victim of the bullpen’s struggles in San Diego, leaving with a 5-3 lead, but getting a no-decision in the 6-5 loss.
Tuesday: Zach Davies (5-3, 5.33) vs. TDB
Davies has won 5 of his last 6 decisions, including the 11-4 win over the Mets in Milwaukee, where he allowed 4 runs on 7 hits in 5 innings. As for the Mets starter, I would not be surprised to see Tyler Pill maybe get the start here, after pitching .2 innings against Pittsburgh and taking the loss on Saturday.
Wednesday: Junior Guerra (0-0, 3.12) vs. Jacob deGrom (4-1, 3.23)
Guerra is making his third start of the year, after spending 7 weeks on the Disabled List with a strained right calf. He allowed just a run on 3 hits in 5.1 innings during the Brewers loss to Arizona in his last start. deGrom returned to form on Friday in Pittsburgh, becoming the first Mets starter to pitch into the ninth this year. He allowed just a run, while striking out 10 for the first time in three starts.
Thursday: Chase Anderson (3-1, 3.72) vs. Zack Wheeler (3-2, 3.83)
Anderson tossed 7 innings of shutout ball and struck out 11 against Arizona in his last start for his first win since April 17. Wheeler was the designated “hard luck loser” on Saturday in Pittsburgh, leaving with a 4-3 lead, but got the no-decision, and the bullpen lost the game late
