Brewers’ Woodruff Starts Again Despite Poor Performances

Brandon Woodruff of the Milwaukee Brewers throws in the first inning against the Colorado Rockies

Brandon Woodruff is still young in baseball years but the 25-year-old has yet to prove to the Milwaukee Brewers he is worthy of a starting spot in the rotation. In 10 career starts, Woodruff has a 5.80 ERA while surrendering more than a hit per inning. In the righty’s two starts this season, he has surrendered 13 hits and nine earned runs in just 6.2 innings of work. Can Woodruff earn a spot in the rotation or will he get mashed by the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday?

  • The Diamondbacks are batting .188 while averaging 2.0 rpg in their last 7 games.
  • The Diamondbacks are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games at home.
  • Lorenzo Cain is slashing .299/.426/.481 on the road this season.

The Diamondbacks will counter with overlooked Matt Koch, who has been steady, to say the least. The righty has a 2.43 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP in five starts this season while holding opponents to three earned runs or less in each outing. Koch does give up plenty of contact – resulting in some issues with the long ball – but is efficient, pitching at least five full innings in every start while only throwing more than 90 pitches twice.

The Diamondbacks ended a nasty six-game losing streak by defeating the Brewers 2-1 on Tuesday. Getting the win was nice but Arizona’s offense continues to struggle with the D-backs hitting just .188 while averaging two runs per game in their last seven outings. The Diamondbacks, who are 23rd in the MLB in runs and 30th in batting average, have only plated four or more runs in three of their last 13.
