The Milwaukee Brewers epically collapsed in the ninth inning on Friday, which marks the second time in their last three games in which they fell off a cliff in the final frame. Mike Yastrzemski blasted a walk-off grand slam to cap off a three-home run ninth. Josh Hader had gone 40 consecutive appearances without allowing a run, as he was automatic. He has since surrendered 15 earned runs in just 12.1 innings and has allowed nine earned runs and gotten just one out in his last two appearances.
The Giants will be looking to continue the momentum on Saturday as the All-Star break get closer. SI Sportsbook is providing a welcome offer when you sign up using the VIBONUS code.

This matchup will pit Alex Cobb and Eric Lauer against each other. Cobb comes in with a 4.57 ERA, coming in off five straight starts allowing three earned runs or fewer. He is 3-4 on the season, but the Giants are just 5-8 in his 13 starts. The Giants have lost three of his last four starts coming into Saturday.
The Brewers will turn to Lauer to get back into the win column. He comes into the matchup with 6-3 record coupled with a 3.83 ERA. He has also pitched decent enough in the last few games, allowing three or fewer in seven of his last 10 games. The trouble for the Brewers could be the bullpen, which has seemed to regress in the last few games because Lauer has only seen the seventh inning once in the last five games.
The current total is set to 7.5, and SI Sportsbook has the under at +100. The over 7.5 runs comes in at -118. The Brewers have only hit over the total twice in their last 10 games, while the Giants have hit over the total four times in that same span. Before Friday’s thrilling comeback, the total had gone under in four straight, and four of the last six in San Francisco when these two teams meet up.
SI Sportsbook also provides up-to-date live lines, and after you sign up using the VIBONUS code, you can place your first wager on a live bet. A win will have the SI Sportsbook depositing $100 in free plays into your account as soon as the bet is settled.
These two teams provided some late night fireworks on Friday, and lately Brewers games have really upheld their end of the bargain when it comes to entertaining. After blowing yet another game, it will be interesting to see who the Brewers use in the late stages, but one thing is certain: the All-Star break cannot come fast enough.
