Pedro Avila (0-0, ERA: 1.17) vs Freddy Peralta (10-8, ERA: 3.97)

This is Pedro Avila‘s eighth appearance and second start of the year for the Padres, and he gets the chance to establish his starting credentials in Rich Hill’s place. In 23 innings of action this season, he has no records, a 1.17 ERA, a 1.174 WHIP, nine walks, and 28 strikeouts. Avila had no bearing on the decision in his most recent appearance, a relief outing against the Marlins on Monday night at home. In a 6-2 Padres victory, he pitched two-thirds of an inning, giving up just one run on two hits while striking out one and not issuing any walks. In his last three appearances, which were all bullpen appearances, Avila is winless with a 0.96 ERA, 0.75 WHIP, one walk, and seven Ks in 9.1 innings.


In this game, Freddy Peralta, pitching for the Brewers, is making his 25th start of the year. In 133.2 innings of work this season, he is 10-8 with a 3.97 ERA, 1.182 WHIP, 50 walks, and 168 strikeouts. In his most recent start, Peralta triumphed over the Rangers on the road on Saturday. He pitched 5.2 innings in a game the Brewers won 6-1, giving up one run on 4 hits, 2 walks, and 11 strikeouts. Peralta is 3-0 with a 0.96 ERA, 0.75 WHIP, five walks, and 30 strikeouts in 18.2 innings pitched over his previous three starts. In this game, Peralta makes his fifth appearance and second start against the Padres.


MLB Odds/Point Spread: Milwaukee Brewers -140, Total Odds: 8.5

Although Avila excelled for the Padres in multi-inning relief roles, he only made one start this year, on August 1 against the Rockies. The Padres have the option of having him and Hill combine for this game, but the reality is that it’s difficult to assess San Diego’s pitching position at the moment. Peralta won his previous four starts, going 24.2 innings with a 1.82 ERA, seven walks, and 37 strikeouts. As of Friday night, the Padres were eight games under .500 on the road (26-34), and the Brewers were eight games above at home (35-27). Give the Brewers the upper hand in this situation, especially considering how brilliantly Peralta pitched over the past month.
