Chase Anderson gets the nod on the mound, having a 1-1 record with a 2.25 ERA, with one of the better starts from the mound for the Milwaukee Brewers starting rotation.
Anderson is looking to improve after he struggled in his last outing against the Twins where he gave up five runs in eleven hits.
Both pitchers have been cruising so far, Anderson didn’t give up a single earned run through his first two starts, while Morton has pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings against the Padres and then only allowed one hit against the Nationals in his last outing.
The Brewers have lost two in a row and are looking to snap their current losing streak. Morton provides the best chance as Milwaukee Brewers hitters have fared well in match-ups against him.
Ryan Braun will try to to add to his .348 career average against Morton.
Meanwhile, Jonathan Lucroy is the only batter who hasn’t played well against Morton, haven gone 0-17 in his career against Morton.
The Brewers allowed the Phillies to snap their losing streak, and now their looking for the Phillies to return the favor. Look for Chase Anderson to return to form, as he has played much better so far for the Brewers than when he was playing for Arizona.
Anderson looks to show that his outing against the Twins the last time around was something out of the ordinary for him.
