This is too big of a price for the Brewers to lay in a pitching matchup of Erick Fedde versus Eric Lauer. It's large enough where I can get involved with the visiting Nationals on the run line.
Fedde is having a strong month going 1-0 with a 2.25 ERA in three May starts. Lauer is off his worst start of the season, a 9-3 loss to the Marlins this past Saturday where he was tagged for four runs on six hits in five innings. Perhaps that was a hiccup for Lauer, or maybe the lefty is due for serious regression having posted a 3-1 record and 2.60 ERA.
The Brewers have scored three or fewer runs in four of their last six games.
