The Philadelphia Phillies may have the best overall record in baseball, but when it comes to playing in one’s own backyard, the Milwaukee Brewers are the best in baseball. Milwaukee’s performance at Miller Park has been downright dominating this season, and it’s finally spilling over into the team’s recent road trips. Entering Thursday, the Brewers are in the midst of yet another winning streak, this time six games, five of which have come on the road in Houston and St. Louis; Milwaukee has also padded it’s lead in the National League Central to five-games over the Cardinals.
“I think we’ve carried over what we were doing at home. I’m hoping that this is the point where it doesn’t really matter to them whether we’re at home or on the road,” manager Ron Roenicke said. “This is probably the most locked in we’ve been for a period of time. We’re playing really good baseball in all areas of the game.” If the Brewers stay locked in, Zack Greinke’s Saturday outing against the Pirates should be yet another walk in Miller Park.
Overall, Milwaukee’s 67-50 MLB gambling record has banked $1319 for its supporters in 2011 and a league leading $2142 in home games (41-15).
Once contenders in the National League Central, the Pirates fell brutally from grace recently. Hell, the Bucs were actually leading the division three weeks ago, but a ten game losing streak dropped them off of the map completely. At least this young Pirates team showed some resiliency recently in the form of taking two of three from the defending champion Giants in San Francisco this week. Though the teams traded shutouts in the first two games of the series, Pittsburgh took the rubber match with a 9-2 beat down of the G-Men to give them their first series win since taking two of three from the Reds in mid July.
Still ten games out, the team and its manager, Clint Hurdle, remain cautious as they head into dairy land for three with the division leading Brewers. “We’ll find out after the Friday night game, but we’re going in with some confidence,” Hurdle said. “We were able to put a foot down and win a series on the road.” It’s going to take a lot to get the Pirates back into the mix, but perhaps Kevin Correia (12-10, 4.78 ERA) can get them moving further in the right direction with a strong outing Saturday afternoon.
Pittsburgh’s 56-60 MLB gambling record has still earned bettors $741 overall in 2011 with $1372 of it coming in road games (30-28).
