In MLB Wild Card, we will see Milwaukee Brewers (B. Woodruff -R) at Washington Nationals (M. Scherzer -R).
The MLB Wild Card games are finally here. The Washington Nationals are favorites for this one but the season did not start well for them. They opened up with 19 wins and 31 losses from the first 50 games they played. Then, for the remainder of the season, Max Scherzer started playing much better and the Nationals went on a 74-38 run to close the season. Scherzer will start on Tuesday on a full week rest and I expect him to deliver.
The Milwaukee Brewers were the complete opposite. They started the season very well but then things got upside down and they barely managed to get to the playoffs. Colorado nearly took their wild card place late in the season but somehow, the Brewers managed to keep it. Christian Yellich is out for the year and won’t play at all. I consider this a big loss for them. Milwaukee will start Brandon Woodruff who is 11-3 as a pitcher.
The Nationals are clearly the better team. They also have more experienced players than the Brewers and this will be visible on Tuesday night.
