Play on: Brewers -102
I’m backing the Brewers on Thursday. Ryan Vogelsong has made several comebacks in his career but it appears he’s finally at the end as he has been destroyed his last four starts allowing 22 runs (20 earned), 26 hits with nine walks in only 17 2/3 innings. Pittsburgh pulled out a 9-7 win at Cincinnati his last start, but lost his previous three outings.
Vogelsong’s September ERA is 10.66. Chase Anderson has pitched better than his 8-11 record indicates and has been solid for five or six innings his last five starts.
Anderson is 4-1 with a 2.95 ERA since the All-Star break and has given up five earned runs with 16 strikeouts in 19 1/3 innings against the Pirates this season. Milwaukee will finish fourth in the NL Central, but the Brewers still are over .500 at home. Pittsburgh is close to being mathematically eliminated from postseason action.
We’ll back the Brewers on Thursday.
Thanks & GL! Scott Spreitzer.
