The Brewers can’t hit anyone recently and the numbers go down against left handers. Atlanta starter coming off of his best outing of the season pitching 6 2/3 shutout innings versus San Francisco. The Braves offense struggle to put runs on the board against any type of pitching with a MLB’s worst 3.21 runs per game and an even lower 2.87 versus LH pitching. Milwaukee starter Will Peralta has 7 straight QS on the season and has owned Atlanta pitching a combined 12 innings of 1 run ball in two starts. Take Under 7 -120.
