How to Bet on Philadelphia Phillies at Milwaukee Brewers MLB Lines & TV InfoDate/Time: Friday August 14, 6.10pm Venue: Miller Park, Milwaukee, Wisconsin TV: CSN, FSWI Radio: Brewers Radio Network Opening Line: TBA The Phillies (46-69) are an impressive 17-7 since the All-Star break, and while it’s definitely a case of too little too late, their fans have to be impressed by the way in which they have responded after a totally lackluster first half. All the more impressive is the fact that these wins have not all come against fellow strugglers. The Phillies have knocked of the likes of the Cubs, Rays, and Dodgers, all teams in the playoff picture, during this stretch. While it would be easy to get a little carried away with this great run, no-one is downplaying the work that needs to be done to get this team back to being a legitimate challenger. The way in which they finish this season may determine what they feel needs to be done in the offseason. The Milwaukee Brewers (48-67) may not have been as impressive as the Phillies have been in the second half, but there is also no denying that they have improved vastly since the break. It also looks as though they have started planning for the future, as they made a number of great moves at the deadline, bringing in a number of hot young prospects. The Brewers have had a tough stretch of games to start the second half, but this series begins a run that sees their schedule get a little easier, as they will have a ton of games against other teams whose playoff hopes have long since been put to bed. Wily Peralta (2-7, 4.48 ERA) will try to snap out of a 2-game losing streak when he gets the start in this one.
