Michael Conforto, Giants pursue encore vs. Brewers

According to STATS
According to STATS

San Francisco Giants at Milwaukee Brewers

  1. San Francisco took two of three against the Brewers at home from May 5-7 and has won seven of the last 11 meetings with Milwaukee. The Brewers took two of the three at home in 2022, however, with all three games decided by two runs or fewer.
  2. The Giants have won three straight series, taking seven of nine games after dropping six of their previous eight. The bullpen has allowed no more than one run in any of these nine games, posting a 1.13 ERA in 40.0 innings and converting all seven save opportunities.
  3. Michael Conforto hit two homers and a double with five RBI in the series against Minnesota and is slashing .320/.364/.720 in 13 games since May 10. Conforto is hitting .257 with seven home runs away from home compared to .182 with three homers at Oracle Park.
  4. Logan Webb has gone 3-1 with a 1.74 ERA over his last six starts, going at least six innings and allowing two runs or fewer in each start. No Giant has done so in seven straight starts since Webb himself had an eight-game streak from July to September 2021.
  5. Milwaukee blanked Houston over its last two games, taking 6-0 and 4-0 shutouts. It's the second time this season the Brewers have shut out an opponent in consecutive games (April 3-4). The team has pitched three straight shutouts twice all-time: July 2013 and April 1990.
  6. Willy Adames homered in Wednesday's win and has two home runs in his last four games after homering just twice in his previous 19. Adames has a .313 average with four home runs in 18 career games against the Giants.
Notes Applicable For Series Dates: 5/25/2023 thru 5/28/2023

The Milwaukee Brewers will be looking to bounce back behind right-hander Freddy Peralta when they host the San Francisco Giants on Friday in the second game of the four-game series.

Peralta (5-3, 4.15 ERA) will be opposed by left-hander Alex Wood (0-0, 4.05).

Six Giants pitchers combined on a four-hitter in a designated bullpen game for a 5-0 victory in the series opener on Thursday.

San Francisco has won eight of its past 10 games. The Giants' pitching staff has not allowed more than four earned runs in 11 consecutive games, tied for the longest streak in the majors this season.

"These strategies tend to work when pitchers do a great job and are really bought in," Giants manager Gabe Kapler said.

Michael Conforto went 4-for-4 with his team-leading 11th home run and a walk on Thursday. Conforto is hitting .471 (8-for-17) over his past four games with three homers, a double and six RBIs.

Milwaukee, which shut out the Houston Astros on Tuesday and Wednesday, has been involved in shutouts in five of its past eight games, losing three of them. The Brewers are 4-19 when scoring three runs or fewer, 23-4 when scoring four or more.

The Brewers did not have a baserunner in the opener against the Giants until the fourth inning, and they struck out 13 times while drawing just two walks.

"This was a night where we simply didn't do enough offensively," Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. "Six baserunners in nine innings, that's not going to be a big offensive night."

Peralta picked up the win in his most recent start, giving up three runs -- all on a three-run homer -- on five hits in six innings during a 6-4 win at Tampa Bay on Sunday.

"I think Freddy probably wants one pitch back. They made him work in that inning pretty good," Counsell said after that contest. "He made a mistake with some guys on base and they did a nice job with it. Other than that, I thought he pitched a wonderful game."

Peralta is 2-1 with a 4.63 ERA in four starts in May, having served up four homers in 23 1/3 innings.

Peralta is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA in two career appearances, including one start, against the Giants, not allowing a run in three innings. He left his start against them last September after two innings due to a right shoulder injury.

Wood is 0-0 with a 6.30 ERA in three appearances, including two starts, since coming off the injured list on May 12. He had been sidelined for nearly a month due to a left hamstring strain.

In his latest start, Wood allowed four runs and two homers in 4 1/3 innings but did not get the decision in the Giants' 7-5 win over the visiting Miami Marlins on Sunday.

Wood is 3-0 with a 1.29 ERA vs. the Brewers in seven career outings, including three starts. He has given up just three runs in 15 innings over four games (two starts) at Milwaukee.
