The Miami Marlins (74-70) will play the Milwaukee Brewers (80-63) on Tuesday night. Milwaukee hammered Miami in last night’s series opener 12-0. The Brewers’ Brandon Woodruff was sensational, throwing his first career complete game shutout. He scattered six hits and one walk while striking out seven.
The Milwaukee lineup hammered Miami starter Jesus Luzardo, scoring six runs off the lefty in five innings. Willy Adames continued to swing a hot bat, going 3-for-4 with four RBI and three runs. He has driven in 11 over the past seven days. Five other Brewers collected multiple hits, with outfielder Tyrone Taylor also getting three hits in the win.

|JT Chargois||vs.||Freddy Peralta|
JT Chargois will work as an opener for the Marlins on Tuesday. The righty has tossed 3.2 shutout innings against the Brewers entering today. He has scattered three hits and no walks while striking out three. All three appearances came in 2018. Chargois has retired five of the six batters he has faced at Miller Park in Milwaukee. The Brewers have little exposure against Chargois. However, Brian Anderson is 3-for-4 against the reliever. Mark Canha and Christian Yelich are a combined 0-6 against the Marlins’ hurler.
Chargois owns a 4.15 ERA over his previous five outings. Opposing batters are hitting .294 off the righty during that span. Chargois has failed to eclipse two innings at any point during the season. Edward Cabrera is the most likely candidate for bulk work on Tuesday. The 25-year-old has tossed three scoreless innings against Milwaukee in his career.
Milwaukee will counter with Freddy Peralta. The hard-throwing righty is 2-1 with a 5.00 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 18 innings against Miami. He last faced them in 2022, surrendering four runs on five hits and a walk in 5.2 innings. Peralta owns a 3.41 ERA at home compared to a 4.34 ERA on the road during his six-season career. Former Pittsburgh Pirate Josh Bell has seen Peralta the most but is just 1-for-13 against the six-foot hurler. However, Luis Arraez, Jacob Stallings, Yuli Gurriel, and Jon Berti are a combined 8-for-17 against Peralta.
Peralta holds a 2.22 ERA over his previous five starts. The Brewers are 4-1 during that span. Opposing lineups are hitting just .157 off Peralta over his last five outings. More importantly, hitters are slugging just .255 off the 27-year-old since an August 13 outing against the White Sox.
Despite last night’s blowout, the Marlins have six hitters with a .800 OPS or higher over the past seven days. Joey Wendle leads the charge, going 4-for-11 with a home run and a stolen base. Jazz Chisholm and Jesus Sanchez have combined for four home runs during that span.
Luis Arraez, Nick Fortes, Xavier Edwards, and Jon Berti are hitting under .185 over the previous seven days. The Marlins’ lineup has been hit or miss over that period.
After a three-hit performance in last night’s 12-0 win, Willy Adames has driven in 11 runs over the previous seven days. He has posted a 1.165 OPS during that span. Teammates Andruw Monasterio, Mark Canha, Joey Weimer, Sal Frelick, and Tyrone Taylor all have an OPS north of .800 over the past seven days.
Rowdy Tellez and Christian Yelich are the only two hitters on the Brewers hitting under .200 over the last seven days.
Marlins vs. Brewers Betting Prediction
I like Milwaukee to emerge victorious yet again on Tuesday night. Starting pitcher Freddy Peralta has been electric over the past month and has always excelled when taking the mound at Miller Park. Meanwhile, the Marlins will turn to a bullpen game, and it takes just one bad performance from a reliever to put them behind the eight ball. So, let’s roll with Milwaukee in this National League tilt.
