Brewers' offense primed for high-scoring series in Miami

May 9, 2016

With 143 runs in 31 games, the Milwaukee Brewers have the league's ninth-ranked offense after being outscored 25-24 by the Cincinnati Reds in a four-game road series.

Their three-game series in Miami should feature even more offense.

The Brewers and the Marlins have the second-highest combined runs per game average of any National League matchup over the last two seasons, clocking in at nearly 12 runs per game.
