Since making a mechanical change, Brad Peacock has posted a 1.32 ERA and 0.94 WHIP with 41 strikeouts in his past six starts spanning 34 innings. The Brewers are going to be in for some cultural shock having never faced Peacock.
The Astros have never faced Milwaukee starter Freddy Peralta either. Peralta has a high ceiling and already has had a number of dominating performances in just his second big league season. He is coming off his best start of the season, a 5-1 win against the Marlins in which he had nine strikeouts, gave up no walks and just four hits in six innings.
Houston's offense is down with Carlos Correa, George Springer and Jose Altuve all injured. It's a reason why the Under has cashed in 71 percent of the Astros' last 24 games.
Both teams have upper tier bullpens. Each bullpen is rested, too, with the teams having been idle on Monday.
