My 9* Getaway Day Rout is on the Mil Brewers at 1:05 ET.
The Philadelphia Phillies entered the 2021 season having NOT made the postseason in the previous NINE years. The Phillies won their first four games but opened a four-game home series with the Brewers just 13-15 on the season. However, the Phillies have won each of the first three contests and are now 16-15, which finds them atop of the NL East (all other teams are sub-.500). The Brewers have made the playoffs in each of the last three seasons but with FOUR straight losses, have fallen to 17-14 and one game back of The St Louis Cardinals in the NL Central.
Milwaukee looked to avoid the series sweep and a FIFTH straight loss with Brandon Woodruff (2-0, 1.80 ERA) on the mound. The Phillies will counter with Zack Wheeler (2-2, 3.49 ERA). Woodruff allowed three ERs on Opening Day but has recorded five consecutive quality starts. He's pitched six-plus innings in each one with a 1.16 ERA and a 35-7 KW ratio. Zach Wheeler beat Atlanta 4-0 in his first start of 2021, allowing one hit over seven innings with a 10-0 KW ratio. However, he owns a 4.26 ERA over his last four starts, with the Phillies losing FOUR of the five.
The Phillies have appeared in seven straight one-run games and that wears on a team. Plus, I love Woodruff over Wheeler.
