Peralta was tagged for five earned runs in three-plus innings, giving up six hits and one walk, with just two strikeouts. He left the game in a 5-0 hole, which was extended to 8-0 when Brent Suter came on in relief.
Stay tuned to the Brewers’ post-game press conference for an update on Peralta’s injury status, but it may be wise to plan for a stop on the injured list for the reigning All-Star.
