The Phillies send Cole Hamels to the mound tonight. Hamels had been super sharp with 6 earned runs combined in 6 starts before a mediocre outing versus the Marlins in his last. He had owned the Brewers prior to his last start with 4 consecutive quality starts although some of the games go back to 2010. Marco Estrada was a batter’s best friend for most of June with 3 atrocious starts but has been effective in his last two registering back to back quality starts. He did face Philadelphia earlier this season getting the win in a 6 inning 2-run performance. Neither team is hitting right now with the Phillies scoring 11 runs and the Brewers scoring 10 in their last 5 games. The trend is to the over in this match-up with the 3 previous games this year going Over the posted line and 4 straight dating back to 2013. However, the numbers support a low scoring game. Take Under 7.5 +110.
