The MLB is back on Saturday as the Philadelphia Phillies will visit Miller Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to face the Milwaukee Brewers in game two of their three-game series. The Phillies will give the nod to Zach Eflin and the Brewers will counter with Junior Guerra.
Philadelphia Phillies Form
The Philadelphia Phillies went through are a bad patch in the recent games. However, they won three of their last four games. Yet, that was not enough to give them the needed confidence boost as they got demolished by the Brewers with a score of 13-2. They will need to improve if they want to get something from this game.
The Phillies have averaged 3.62 runs per game and have allowed 4.38 runs per game on the road so far. Zach Eflin record against the Brewers stands at 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA in one start.

Milwaukee Brewers Form
The Milwaukee Brewers are one of the better teams this season. However, it seems that they have a problem with their consistency. Yet, they swept the Phillies in the last game with a score of 13-2. They dominated the game from start to the end and they will head into this game with high level of confidence. The Brewers have averaged 4.06 runs per game and have allowed 3.97 runs per game here at Miller Park so far this year. Junior Guerra record against the Phillies stands at 0-1 with a 7.20 ERA in two starts.
On the offensive side of the game, the Brewers have been in an average form this season as they are placed on the 15th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 4.28 runs per game, while also ranking 14th spot in hitting at .247 and 10th place in homers with a total of 84 so far this season. On the mound, they are very solid as they are placed on the 4th spot in the league in ERA at 3.42, while also holding the 7th place in WHIP at 1.21 and 14th spot in K’s with 585.
The Phillies were on a good run lately, however, they were thrashed in the last game against the Brewers. It seems that they are not on the same level as Milwaukee. On the other side, the Brewers have been playing very good and their pitching is very solid. They were dominant in the last game and my expectation is that they will win this game. I take the Brewers in this one.
