Historically speaking, the San Francisco Giants have dominated the Milwaukee Brewers, with the boys from The Bay winning 13 of the past 15 meetings between the two clubs. However, this season may be different, as the Giants have found themselves struggling while the Brew Crew are leading the NL Central.

- Buster Posey has safely reached base in 18 straight games dating back to May 11.
- The Giants are 1-5 SU and ATS in their last 6 games.
- The Brewers are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games at home with Junior Guerra starting.
Despite giving up plenty of contact, Jeff Samardzija had himself a stellar month of May on the mound. In six starts last month, the 11-year veteran posted a solid 3.32 ERA with a remarkable 49/1 K/BB ratio. Samardzija continues to chew up innings as well, with “The – Shark” pitching at least 7.0 innings in four of his past six.
The Brewers will counter with Junior Guerra, who has been lights out since returning from the DL. Guerra, who missed a good chunk of the season after being injured on Opening Day, has allowed just one run in 11.2 innings since re-entering Milwaukee’s rotation.
