As if the
Peralta was the hard-luck loser against the host Cubs. He gave up just one run on eight hits in six innings, but all he had to show for it was an 0-4 record. He walked two and struck out six.
"[Peralta] is battling too hard for his stuff," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said, via MLB.com. "He's doing a great job because he doesn't have his good command, and he keeps us in ballgames. You look at his outing today, and he gives up one run and it's a really nice job. But he's working way too hard to get to that."
He would have matched Jon Lester goose egg for goose egg if he had not allowed the first career home run to Addison Russell in the fourth inning. Peralta retired the Cubs in order only in the fifth, but performed well in pitching out of jams.
Peralta, who has surrendered just three runs in his last 12 innings covering two starts, will try to notch his first victory of the season Wednesday against the Dodgers.
Another defeat for him and Milwaukee.
Peralta allowed two runs on seven hits in 6 1/3 innings against St. Louis with two walks and four strikeouts. But now he is winless in three decisions.
The outing was still encouraging considering he began the evening with a 5.68 ERA and had surrendered 10 runs on 18 hits in his previous 12 innings pitched.
Peralta cruised after allowing a two-run triple to Kolten Wong in the second. He allowed five hits the rest of the way and worked out a jam in the sixth.
He is set to start again Friday against the host Cubs.
Peralta worked efficiently through his first five innings of work before finding trouble in the sixth. He allowed the first three runs to reach base safely in the inning before getting Marlon Byrd to ground into an out at home plate. Then, Brayan Pena hit a sacrifice fly to center to bring in the first run of the game.
Then, Zack Cozart opened the flood gates with a three-run home run over the left field wall, driving in Byrd and Jay Bruce. Peralta also allowed a two-run shot to Joey Votto in the seventh before being pulled in the eighth.
"It's hard to believe with the stuff he had today that he ends up with six runs against him," Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said.
Peralta, now 0-2, boasts a 5.68 ERA and will look for his first win of the year Saturday against the Cardinals.
Peralta went 0-2 with a 0.60 ERA and 0.67 WHIP in two starts against the Reds last season. He allowed one run on six hits and four walks in 15 innings, while recording 12 strikeouts.
Monday's game also happens to be at home, where Peralta is 10-6 with a 3.64 ERA in his last 18 home starts.
The Reds enter play Monday with 37 runs, which is tied for the fifth-lowest total in the majors.
Peralta gave up two earned runs on seven hits with two strikeouts, finishing with an ERA of 2.57. His next outing is in St.Louis against the Cardinals on Tuesday.
