Money Line: -168.00 Milwaukee (Home)
Mikolas is coming off a near no-hitter against the Pirates in his last start this past Tuesday coming within one out. Here's the rub, though. Mikolas was left in the game despite a high pitch count to try to achieve that historic feat. He ended up throwing a career-high 129 pitches.
Burnes, the reigning Cy Young Award winner, faced the Cardinals on May 29 and gave up only two hits in seven innings with 11 strikeouts in Milwaukee's 8-0 victory. Mikolas opposed Burns in that game and gave up six runs on nine hits in 5 2/3 innings, including two home runs.
The Brewers are 27-17 against righthanded starters and 22-11 in Central Division play.
This game sets up for the Brewers. So I want them on my ticket.
