MLB Betting news… The Brewers (9-12) finished a 1-5 homestand, but have a chance to win five straight on the road for the first time since a franchise record-tying, nine-game run from July 18-Aug. 2, 2008. They would seem to have the right starter to accomplish that feat as Doug Davis (0-2, 8.35 ERA) is 7-1 with a 2.42 ERA in his last 10 starts against the Padres, and 3-0 with a 2.05 ERA in his last four in San Diego.
If San Diego’s Wade LeBlanc (1-0, 0.82) continues to pitch well, Hoffman might not get the chance for redemption. The left-hander, who has never faced the Brewers, threw three-hit ball over six innings of Saturday’s 5-0 win in Cincinnati. He’ll also try to help the Padres (13-8) extend their longest home win streak since taking 10 in a row May 7-24.
