Milwaukee Brewers vs San Francisco Giants Prediction and Picks

Milwaukee has all the momentum in this series and is showing why this National League push is going to be much more than just a two-horse race between the Giants and Dodgers. That said, there are few people going in baseball quite like Logan Webb. San Francisco is 12-1 in his last 13 starts, which is as close to certain as it gets and games have been tight. We like the Giants money line and the under

Garcia’s 2021 record: (48-46-2)

Giants Turn To Pitching Edge to Get Back on Track

The Giants haven’t had many weeks like this in 2021. Losing more than they’ve won; it’s weird.

But one reason they’ve won so much this year is that every pitcher is capable of starting a winning streak, and that’s exactly what San Francisco is counting on with Logan Webb on the mound.

The 24-year-old has been great all season long, currently sitting at 8-3 overall, with a 2.65 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and 111 strikeouts in 105.1 innings and that’s been even more dominant of late.

Webb has held his opponent to two runs or fewer in 13 straight starts, remarkably giving up just one or fewer in 12 of those outings. San Francisco is 12-1 in those appearances and a 1.50 ERA.

The numbers are equally as impressive when you isolate them to just his home splits: Webb is 5-0 with a 1.71 ERA and a .133 batting average against in his nine starts at Oracle Park.

Long story short, he’s been the best pitcher in baseball that nobody is talking about.

On the other side, it’s Eric Lauer, who has been good, but not great for Milwaukee this year. Lauer, 26, is 4-5 overall in 2021, with a 3.61 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 82 strikeouts across 18 appearances — 14 of them starts.

Brewers Hope to Put an Exclamation Point on Series

The season has been long. Thousands of games have been played. But the argument could be made that what Milwaukee has done the past three days — going into San Francisco and taking three consecutive contests by shutting down the Giants’ offense — is as impressive as it gets.

Milwaukee’s winning streak has come largely with solid pitching, holding the Giants to five runs (2 or fewer in each game) in 27 innings.

It’s also been helpful that 2019 MVP runner-up Christian Yelich has finally got going. After three months of hitting .241 or worse, He hit .313 in August, with a .359 OBP and .829 OPS.

The worst part for San Francisco is this one tough week has caused their four-game lead in the division to evaporate and they are now technically a half-game back of the Dodgers for the lead in the NL West.

So, in a way, this game means more to the Giants. Milwaukee has iits NL Central title all but wrapped up, but the Giants are now the chasers instead of the chasee’s with one month to play.

X-Factors to Watch

This is always a fun exercise to do with San Francisco because really it is a team of x-factors. Nobody who is going to sign a mega-contract, but a clubhouse of solid ball players who execute their role better than the other team.

On this night, we will look at Brandon Belt. Quietly and despite missing more than six weeks, Belt has been one of the team’s best power hitters with 20 home runs and a .941 OPS. He’s also been great against lefties this year, hitting .302 (13-of-43) with a 1.020 OPS.

For Milwaukee, it’s going to be Jace Peterson. The second baseman. The Brewers leadoff man does some of his best work on the road, hitting .333 this year (33-99) with five home runs, 19 RBIs and a 1.004 OPS.
