Giants vs. Brewers, Series Preview: Giants Looking to Bounce Back in Milwaukee

After the San Francisco Giants' seemingly month long party at AT&T came to a screeching halt by the hands of the Florida Marlins, they now set out for another seven day road trip with their first stop in Milwaukee to face the Brewers at Miller Park. 

Despite being swept this week, the Giants have still won 12 of their last 18 games and 14 of their last 21, bringing their winning percentage in the Month of May to .682, second in MLB only to the Red Sox. But for all their success at home, the Giants now face a Brewers team that holds the best home record in baseball at 19-6 including their last nine straight at Miller Park. San Francisco swept the Brewers in Milwaukee last year in a four game series and have taken seven of their last eight games against them.The Brew Crew is batting a team .289 at home this season and have played 15 of their last 19 at home. So no matter how you slice it, these teams are ready to battle it out, and the stats are there to prove it.
