Arizona Diamondbacks at Milwaukee Brewers

  1. The Brewers are 10-3 against the Diamondbacks since the start of the 2018 season. Arizona won its last game in Milwaukee, snapping a seven-game losing streak at American Family Field.
  2. The Diamondbacks lost to the Mets yesterday, 7-6, to fall to 2-12 (.167) in one-run games this season, the lowest winning percentage in the major leagues. The Brewers are 10-6 (.625) in one-run games, second best in the majors (Mariners, 13-5, .722).
  3. The Brewers are hitting .213 with runners on base, 11 points lower than any other major-league team, and they are also last in batting average with runners in scoring position (.199).
  4. Pavin Smith has hit safely in each of his last 13 games, the second longest current hitting streak in the major leagues, behind Cincinnati's Nick Castellanos (18).
  5. Kolten Wong hit two home runs on Tuesday against the Tigers, for his third multi-homer game in the major leagues. His other ones were with the Cardinals in 2014 against the Red Sox and in 2019 at American Family Field (then Miller Park).
  6. Jon Duplantier has allowed three home runs in 17.2 innings as a starting pitcher in the major leagues, but he has not allowed a homer in any of his 23.2 innings as a reliever. Brett Anderson has made it through four innings in only one of his last five starts, and he's thrown a total of 15.1 innings in those games.
Notes Applicable For Series Dates: 6/3/2021 thru 6/6/2021

Avisail Garcia has proved to be a surprising power source for the Milwaukee Brewers, who begin a four-game series against the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday.

The 29-year-old right fielder has settled in as the team's cleanup hitter after batting .290 with seven home runs and 21 RBIs over his last 28 games.

Garcia has a team-high 10 homers after going deep twice in 181 at-bats during last year's shortened season.

Milwaukee had its five-game winning streak snapped with Sunday's 10-7 loss to Detroit and will look to return to the win column against struggling Arizona.

The Diamondbacks fell for the 15th time in their last 17 games on Tuesday, when Madison Bumgarner lasted two innings in a 7-6 loss to the New York Mets.

Bumgarner, who gave up five runs on eight hits, exited with left shoulder discomfort and will undergo an MRI.

Milwaukee is 8-3 against NL West opponents but will need to adjust without center fielder Lorenzo Cain, who landed on the 10-day injured list on Tuesday with a right hamstring strain.

Cain's injury could result in more playing time for Jackie Bradley Jr. and Tyrone Taylor, who was recalled from the minors on Tuesday.

Bradley was 6-for-73 with 30 strikeouts in May, but manager Craig Counsell remains confident in the 31-year-old veteran.

"Jackie's going to get a big opportunity here and he's going to be in there most nights, for sure, and we're going to count on him," Counsell said. "We're going to need Jackie to produce. It's been a struggle. But we've got to keep believing in him and supporting him and helping him and know that he's going to turn the corner. There's too much to believe that he's not going to turn a corner."

Bradley could be in the lineup against Arizona starter Jon Duplantier (0-0, 7.71 ERA), who made his season debut last Thursday. Duplantier gave up four runs on seven hits over 4 2/3 innings against St. Louis.

The 26-year-old right-hander was making his first major league appearance since Sept. 29, 2019, after missing all of last season due to injury.

Duplantier was recalled from Triple-A Reno after going 1-0 with a 7.71 ERA in two starts covering seven innings.

The Brewers will turn to left-hander Brett Anderson (2-3, 4.18), who received a no-decision after allowing two runs (one earned) over 3 1/3 innings against Washington last Saturday.

The 33-year-old is 1-2 with a 4.57 ERA in six road starts this season compared to a 1-1 record and 3.38 mark in two starts at American Family Field.

Josh Reddick is 6-for-11 with two homers against Anderson, who is 1-2 with a 4.15 ERA in six career starts versus Arizona.

Reddick has delivered in his first 13 games since joining the Diamondbacks, batting .362 with seven RBIs in 48 at-bats.

"He's always ready to compete at the best level he can," manager Torey Lovullo said. "That's contagious."

Arizona has also received a boost from center fielder Ketel Marte, who belted his fourth homer in Tuesday's loss. Marte is 12-for-35 with two homers and seven RBIs over his last nine games.
