Score Prediction - Phillies 5, Brewers 3

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Philadelphia Phillies - Best Bets

The Phillies went for a long stretch of not being able to win back-to-back games, which actually reached a 10-game skid this season off a victory.

However, the Phillies have turned it around of late with three straight one-run victories over the Brewers, as Zack Wheeler tries to turn around some recent bad luck here and get Philadelphia the day-time sweep against a tough starter in Milwaukee's Brandon Woodruff.

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Philadelphia Phillies - Series History

The Phillies have captured all three meetings with the Brewers in this series as Philadelphia seeks a four-game sweep this afternoon.

All three wins have come by one run apiece, starting with the Phillies edging the Brewers in Monday's series opener, 4-3.

Phillies' outfielder Andrew McCutchen knocked out a pair of home runs in Tuesday's 6-5 triumph as Philadelphia built a 6-1 lead before Milwaukee had an opportunity to tie the game in the ninth inning and failed.

The Phillies struck for five runs in the first inning of Wednesday's 5-4 triumph as the Brewers rallied again, but fell into too deep of a hole and suffered their fourth straight loss since a three-game winning streak.

Pitching Matchup

Milwaukee: Brandon Woodruff (2-0, 1.80 ERA)

The Brewers' right-hander continues to be a workhorse as he has tossed at least six innings in five straight outings. Milwaukee owns a 5-1 record in Woodruff's six starts this season, including a perfect 3-0 road mark.

Woodruff has seen the Under cash in four of six outings, while the Under is 15-4-1 in his previous 20 starts since the beginning of the 2020 campaign.

Philadelphia: Zack Wheeler (2-2, 3.49 ERA)

Since dominating the Braves in his season debut, Wheeler has allowed less than three earned runs only once in the last five trips to the mound.

Philadelphia is 1-4 in Wheeler's past five outings, in spite of the right-hander striking out at least six batters in four straight appearances.
