Free MLB Picks: Padres@ Brewers; 08:40 PM

on Wednesday night. Will Venable and Nick Hundley are the two players who have helped the San Diego Padres' recent surge at the plate. The Milwaukee Brewers being the opponent seems to be the other reason behind that surge. Venable and Hundley are going to try to help the Padres achieve their longest road winning stretch of this season. San Diego (45-56) has recorded four wins out of six games, batting at an average of .308 with seven homers and 34 runs. That has equaled its scoring and home run totals over the earlier 15 games, which included 14 losses and an average of .200.

MLB weekly picks expert informs that the Padres' offensive strategy was shown on Tuesday as they yielded out 15 hits in a 6-2 win at Milwaukee (41-58) after winning the first game of a four-game series 5-3. They had achieved three consecutive wins during a series sweep of the Dodgers from April 15-17. Black is referring to Venable and Hundley, both of whom had a homer among their three hits Tuesday. Venable is hitting an average of .232 this season but is now 8 for 21 with a pair of homers over his last five games. Hundley is now 8 for 18 with two long balls and six RBIs in his last five contests. Venable's good fortune is likely to continue. He has an average of .397 in 18 visits to Miller Park, his most in any NL park.

MLB predictions expert reports that Milwaukee's starters have already allowed seven runs and 12 hits over 9 2-3 innings in this series, but Kyle Lohse who is 6-7 with a 3.49 ERA has won three out of his last four starts against San Diego behind a 2.63 ERA. The right-hander has earned a 7-1 road win against the Padres on April 22. He allowed one run in total five innings. A home meeting may be more beneficial to Lohse, who owns an ERA of 2.28 while winning four consecutive starts there. He however, battled hard in his latest outing on Friday, tossing 105 pitches in six innings in a 2-0 win over Miami. Lohse will most probably be not expecting much help from the rest of the lineup, which has collected an average of .206 over the last 11 games. The Brewers have ushered in eight hits in this series, their first pair of games since the declaration of Ryan Braun's season-finishing suspension.

Weekly MLB picks expert reports that Sean O’Sullivan who is at 0-1 with a 6.43ERA will face in a spot start in place of Jason Marquis of Milwaukee for the first time. Marquis is scheduled to undergo Tommy John surgery pretty soon. O'Sullivan is, however, aiming to win for the first time since beating the New York Yankees on May 12, 2011. The right-hander has spent whole of the last year in the minors and he gave up two runs and six hits over five innings in a 10-1 loss to San Francisco on July 12 - his first start since Sept. 27, 2011.
