The Arizona Diamondbacks (74-86) and Milwaukee Brewers (84-76) continue their season-ending, three-game set Tuesday night. Just two games remain, Milwaukee eliminated in the playoff race despite a rallying, 6-5 win in Monday’s opener. With the Philadelphia Phillies having won Monday night, that ended the Brewers’ shot at the final NL wild-card spot. With nothing on the line here, it will be interesting to see how these teams respond.
Gallen Spotless Against Brewers
The Arizona Diamondbacks may be a very average team, but their starter tonight, Zac Gallen (12-3, 2.46), is anything but average. He ranks among the top ten in ERA. In his last five starts in August and his first in September, he didn’t allow a run (41.1 innings). One of those ‘shutouts’ came against Milwaukee (seven innings, two hits, seven strikeouts, one walk).
Milwaukee Done ‘Cause Philly Won
Southpaw Eric Lauer (10-7, 3.83) is Gallen’s opposite number Tuesday night. He’s struggling down the home stretch of the season, 0-2 with a 4.82 ERA (11 runs surrendered) in his last four. The team is 1-3 in the games, the lone win coming against the bottom-feeding Cincinnati Reds.

Diamondbacks vs Brewers Prediction
A lesser team with a better pitcher is the Tuesday scenario. Gallen continues to be a lights-out pitcher, and we expect him to get it done in this penultimate game.
