TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASEBALL SELECTION TUESDAY, JUNE 22ND
#955 MILWAUKEE with Peralta (-137) over Arizona with Gallen at 9:40 PM EST
Checking in hungry off last night’s 5-1 loss to the Diamondbacks, the Brew Crew will get after it in the desert on Tuesday night. Arizona picked up a rare victory yesterday and backing a D’Backs bunch that holds an embarrassing 21-53 SU record isn’t going to happen anytime soon. Let’s take a look inside the numbers.
Taking the bump for the Brewers will be right-hander Freddy Peralta. So far this season, No. 51 has made 14 trips to the mound (13 starts) and been scratched for 19 earned runs and 36 hits in 75.0 innings of work. Peralta carries a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 104-29 and owns a 6-2 record with a nifty 2.28 ERA. Freddy’s efforts against ‘Zona have been noteworthy too. Peralta has appeared in three games against the D’Backs (one start) and holds a magnificent 2-0 tally with a 0.87 ERA.
Countering for the home team will be right-hander Zac Gallen. In his first start back from a five-week layoff with a right forearm strain, No. 23 got pounded by the Giants for four earned runs and four hits in 2.2 innings. Gallen served up one long ball and suffered the loss in San Francisco’s 10-3 victory. Overall, Zac has pitched 29.1 frames this season and been cracked for 13 earned runs and 22 hits. That shakes down to a 1-2 record with a 3.99 ERA.
There are some strong team trends that support this money-maker. Milwaukee has won 14 of its last 20 when battling opponents from the NL West and nine of its last 13 on foreign soil. Meanwhile, Arizona has dropped 36 of its last 51 matched up against a right-handed starter, 40 of its last 51 when priced as an underdog, and 17 of its last 21 when playing in the comforts of home.
Currently tied with the Cubs for the top spot in the NL Central, the Brewers can’t afford any more road losses to a team that rests 22.0-games under the .500-mark. Take Milwaukee with Peralta. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
