The NL Central is tight. They’re the only division in baseball with four teams at 50+ wins, and only 2.5 games separate the teams in first from the team in fourth. The Milwaukee Brewers have led the division for most of the season, but have struggled. Over the last ten games on the Brewers schedule, the team has compiled a 2-8 record. Now they have the unenviable task of playing a Cincinnati Reds team that is nipping at their heels. However, the Reds schedule did just feature three straight losses at the hands of the New York Yankees. Brewers tickets are averaging $31.33 for the series on the secondary market, down 59 percent from the season average.
7/21 – CIN Mat Latos vs. MIL Wily Peralta | Avg. Price: $30 | Get-in Price: $8
If you want an explanation for the Brewers recent struggles, look no further than their rotation. The unit has become completely unhinged in the last month. Wily Peralta, who starts the first game of the series, has a 5.81 ERA in his last five starts. He’s been the victim of the long ball and as registered as a replacement level pitcher over the stretch. Tickets are averaging $30 for the game and have an $8 get-in price.
7/22 – CIN Homer Bailey vs. MIL Jimmy Nelson | Avg. Price: $31 | Get-in Price: $9
Rookie Jimmy Nelson starts the second game of the series, making another spot start for the Brewers. He’s only pitched in two games in the majors so far this season, and his last was an eight-run disaster where he didn’t even pitch into the fifth inning. Tickets are averaging $31 for the game with a $9 get-in price.
7/23 – CIN Mike Leake vs. MIL Kyle Lohse | Avg. Price: $33 | Get-in Price: $9
The Brewers get a strong starter out for the finale. Kyle Lohse has been one of the few bright spots in the rotation for the team this season. Overall he’s tied for the team lead in WAR, and in the last month he leads the team with a 3.38 ERA. The game is the most expensive of the series, even if that isn’t saying much. The game is averaging $33 a ticket with a $9 get-in price.
