Pick: Brewers ML (-130)
Wednesday afternoon takes us to the nation’s capital for the finale of a three-game series between the Milwaukee Brewers and the Washington Nationals. Both of these teams are having two very different seasons at the moment as Milwaukee is fighting to finish first in their division, and Washington has been showing signs of improvement during the rebuild, but still struggling to pick up victories.
The Milwaukee Brewers come into the finale of this series on Wednesday afternoon, looking to grab another victory and extend their lead over the Cincinnati Reds in the National League Central division. Milwaukee has been solid this season, but they have been inconsistent at times as well and they will be looking to gather some momentum when they cap off this series against Washington on Wednesday afternoon on the road in Washington DC. The Milwaukee Brewers come into this game less than 10 games above .500 on the season and they will need to get hot coming down the stretch if they want to fight off the red hot Cincinnati Reds over the course of the final two months of the 2023 Major League Baseball season.
Wade Miley will take the mound for the finale of this series and he’s having a solid season as a respectable number two starter for the Milwaukee Brewers behind former Cy Young Award winner Corbin Burnes. He comes into this game with six victories to his name this season, and he will be looking to pick up his seventh victory of the year here against one of the worst lineups in all of Major League Baseball. Milwaukee struggled in the opening game of the series on Monday night against the Nationals, but they were able to bounce back on Tuesday to even up the series before coming into this finale on Wednesday with an opportunity to take two out of three games from Washington.

The Washington Nationals have massively improved this season compared to last season. They are showing plenty of progress in their rebuild, and they are potentially a couple more years away from contending once again. However, at this point, they are just waiting to get through the season and hoping to play spoiler to the hopes of a few playoff teams in the National League. Washington comes into the finale of the series, looking to take two out of three games from the Milwaukee Brewers after losing the middle game on Tuesday night by a couple of runs. Washington’s lineup was productive throughout the first two games of this series, but they will have to work on allowing less runs and being more efficient when their pitchers take the mound.
MacKenzie Gore is expected to take the ball for the finale of this series on Wednesday afternoon against the Milwaukee Brewers. Don’t let his record fool you, he has been solid this season, but he has not gotten much help from his offense throughout the year otherwise, he would probably have a little bit of a better record. He will be looking to pick up his seventh victory of the season here on Wednesday afternoon and shut down a Milwaukee Brewers lineup that has been inconsistent at times throughout the season. You can expect McKenzie going to have an efficient outing in this game and have a lengthy stay here on Wednesday afternoon against the Brewers if he has his best stuff working for him.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Washington is 21-34 on the road this season
- Milwaukee is 29-26 on the road this season
- Milwaukee is 29-28 after a win this season
I have the Milwaukee Brewers taking this one in a close in competitive game between these two National League ball clubs here on Wednesday afternoon. As I look for Wade Miley to outduel MacKenzie Gore in this rubber match on Wednesday afternoon in Washington DC as Milwaukee looks to reclaim first place of the division from the Cincinnati Reds. I look for the Brewers to pick up a solid multi run victory here on Wednesday afternoon as they continue to fight for a playoff spot in the National League.
