Free Pick Thursday: #901/902 OVER 7.5 Milwaukee at San Francisco 2:45 PM CT

For anyone doubting Milwaukee’s potential this fall the Brewers have emphatically answered in a big road series with three straight wins in San Francisco. It took everyone yesterday however getting only a two-inning start and needing six relievers to close out the game, with five relievers including Josh Hader featuring at least 17 pitches thrown. San Francisco also emptied its bullpen after tying the game in the fifth inning, using five relievers in the 5-2 loss. There were only seven runs last night but these teams combined to go 5-26 with runners in scoring position as there was no shortage of base runners and scoring opportunities. San Francisco is now 4-33 with runners in scoring position in this series as the bats are likely to break through in the finale. Eric Lauer has a 3.61 ERA but a 4.26 xFIP and his recent run of success included four of his last eight starts vs. the lowly Pirates. He has faced one winning team since mid-June and the Giants have some familiarity with the former San Diego starter. Logan Webb is having a dream season with his success built on a 61 percent ground ball rate. His FIP is about a half-run higher than his excellent 2.65 ERA and Milwaukee has an advantage of having faced him already this season about a month ago, something a non-division team might not usually have against a young starter. Webb’s numbers are excellent, but he only averages about five innings per start and Milwaukee’s lineup has scored 5.0 runs per nine vs. right-handers in the past 10 games. While San Francisco’s lineup has the lowest ground ball rate in MLB, over the past month Milwaukee’s ground ball rate has dropped into the 10 lowest in the league as around 42 percent as Webb may not get the results that he is accustomed to. Oracle Park has leaned slightly ‘over’ this season with the Giants being a top home run producer and has featured 8.8 runs per game on average. Day games in San Francisco have been particularly high scoring with 9.8 runs per game since mid-June and today’s early forecast features a rare mid-80s humidity projection and a stable breeze out to left-center field to perhaps help a potential home run for MLB’s home run leading Giants
