Two first place teams face off this week with the Washington Nationals on the Milwaukee Brewers schedule this week. The Brewers have won four straight to take the top record in the National League with 47 wins, and the Nationals are 1.5 games up in the NL East. Brewers tickets are down 57 percent for the series for an average of $34.67 a ticket.
6/23 WAS Gio Gonzalez vs. MIL Matt Garza | Avg. Price: $29 | Get-in Price: $6
The cheapest game of the series features two of the most prominent pitchers. But despite their name recognition, both players have ERAs over 4.00. Matt Garza has still managed to be one of the Brewers best pitchers, and bad luck helps explain part of his ERA, but Gio has been off most of the season. Even his last start wasn’t promising. The average price of the game is $29 and the get-in price is $6.
6/24 WAS Jordan Zimmerman vs. MIL Yovani Gallardo | Avg. Price: $35 | Get-in Price: $8
The second game in the series sees the average price jump to $35 for Brewers vs Nationals tickets and the get-in price jump to $8. Yovani Gallardo is posting the best ERA of his career, but also his worst FIP. Meanwhile Jordan Zimmerman has been great for the Nationals, limiting walks and overall base runners. His 2.95 ERA is second best on the team.
6/25 WAS Stephen Strasburg vs. MIL Marco Estrada | Avg. Price: $40 | Get-in Price: $14
Stephen Strasburg has morphed into the ace everyone expected, making the games he pitches on the Nationals schedule must-see. He’s striking out over 10 batters per nine innings, while limiting walks and posting a 2.8 WAR, which is easily the best figure on the team. For the Brewers Marco Estrada gets the start and he has easily been the Brewers worst starter. He is the only pitcher with a negative WAR and an ERA over 4.50. The average price of the game is the highest of the series at $40 and the get-in price is $14.
