San Francisco Giants at Milwaukee Brewers

  1. The Brewers entered the All-Star break with an NL-leading 155 homers and lead the majors with 14 home runs in seven games this month. Milwaukee, however, is batting .205 in July, 29th in the majors and percentage points ahead of the MLB-worst Rockies.
  2. Christian Yelich is slashing .372/.422/.670 with 13 doubles, 19 RBI, and 18 runs in 22 games against the Giants since 2016. That 1.092 OPS is the best by any of the 50 major leaguers with at least 90 plate appearances against San Francisco since 2016.
  3. Buster Posey, conversely, is batting .424 with a .486 OBP in his 16 games against the Brewers since 2016. Both his batting average and OBP are the highest in MLB among the 86 batters that have at least 70 plate appearances against Milwaukee since 2016.
  4. All-Star Mike Moustakas is hitting just .197 in his last 19 games immediately after batting .364 during an 11-game hitting streak. His .197 batting average since June 18 is tied with the Dodgers' Max Muncy for the second lowest in MLB among the 66 batters with at least 75 plate appearances in that span.
  5. Yasmani Grandal hit his 19th homer on Saturday to match Dave Nilsson in 1999 for the most by a Brewers catcher before the All-Star break. His 50 walks are the most at the break by any NL catcher since the Rockies' Chris Iannetta also had 50 in 2011.
  6. The Giants won six of seven before the break, scoring at least seven runs in five of those games. In 17 games since June 20, San Francisco's 42 doubles trail only Pittsburgh's 43 for the most in all of MLB.
Notes Applicable For Series Dates: 7/12/2019 thru 7/14/2019

Ryan Braun will cap an emotional weekend when he leads the Milwaukee Brewers up against the visiting San Francisco Giants in the finale of their three-game series on Sunday afternoon.

Braun will leave immediately following the game to fly to Southern California, where he plans to attend the funeral for former workout partner Tyler Skaggs, the Los Angeles Angels pitcher who died on July 1.

The Brewers have given Braun permission to miss Monday's home series opener against Atlanta.

"I'm very thankful that the team is allowing me to do it," he told reporters before Saturday's game. "There are things that happen in life that are far more significant than baseball, and this is one of them."

Braun hung around the ballpark after Friday's series-opening loss to the Giants to watch on television as the Angels honored Skaggs by having all their players wear No. 45 on their jerseys. Even from 2,000 miles away, the California native admitted he was hit hard by the events of the evening, which included two Angels pitchers combining for a no-hitter and everyone laying their jerseys on the mound after the win.

"Whether people are spiritual or religious or whatever it is, that takes your belief to another level," he insisted. "You know he was watching and enjoying it. It was incredible. One of the coolest moments I've ever seen in sports."

Braun has had a roller-coaster of a series against the Giants, but he ended Saturday's 5-4 win on a positive note, racing home from second base on Ben Gamel's walk-off double with two outs in the ninth inning.

Earlier in the seesaw affair, Braun grounded into a double play with runners on first and third in the seventh inning with the Brewers trailing 2-1. He also struck out with a runner at third to end the third inning, but sandwiched that failure with a double and a walk.

He reached base on an error before scoring the game-winning run in the bottom of the ninth.

In search of their second straight well-pitched game, the Brewers will turn in the series finale to right-hander Jhoulys Chacin (3-9, 5.40), who has gone 0-6 with a 5.77 ERA in his last eight starts.

Chacin has a winning career record against the Giants, going 9-7 in 22 games (21 starts) with a 3.11 ERA.

He'll be facing a Giants team that once again figures to be without hot-hitting Alex Dickerson, who experienced back spasms in Friday's win and sat out Saturday.

Even with the Giants playing a critical stretch of games that could determine if they are buyers or sellers at the upcoming trade deadline, manager Bruce Bochy assured before Saturday's game that the team would take a conservative approach with the young outfielder who has had a history of back pain.

"We have to monitor his workload, especially this year, with his issues with the back," he explained to reporters. "He needs to be honest with us when he needs (days off)."

Without Dickerson, the Giants were held to four runs Saturday after having scored 63 runs in their previous eight games.

Right-hander Tyler Beede (2-3, 5.64) benefitted from one of the club's offensive eruptions in his last start, a 10-4 win at San Diego last Tuesday. Both his wins this season have come on the road.

Beede has never faced the Brewers.
