Milwaukee Brewers vs Los Angeles Dodgers
The Brewers are currently second in NL Central with 65-56. Their batting average this season is .234 which is 22nd in the entire major league, while the combined slugging percentage showed .411. So far, they have recorded 548 runs and 169 home runs in 2022. They finished third in the current home run ranking for the entire MLB.
On Monday, manager Craig Counsell put Aaron Ashby on the 15-day injured list due to shoulder inflammation. The pitcher will miss his scheduled start against the Dodgers and is expected to be out until the beginning of September.
In addition to Ashby, Jake Cousins and Mike Brosseau also sustained minor injuries in the elbow and ribs, respectively, so they will not be joining the second game.
