Peralta (6-2) allowed two runs on five hits and struck out six over seven innings, but he took the loss Wednesday versus Cincinnati. Two of the five hits Peralta allowed were RBI doubles, which accounted for the runs he gave up. The right-hander hasn't allowed more than two runs in a start since May 5, a span of seven straight outings. He has a 2.28 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 104:29 K:BB across 75 innings this year. Peralta lines up for a favorable road start in Arizona next week.
Peralta did not factor into the decision during Thursday's win over the Reds despite allowing one run on two hits and a pair of walks while striking out six across four innings. A 37-minute rain delay put the hammer in Peralta's successful outing. The right-hander left the game with the score tied, 1-1, with his only damage of the day coming from a solo homer by Joey Votto in the second inning. Unfortunately, Peralta snapped his streak of seven-plus punchouts to begin a season at 11 starts. Regardless, over his last six outings, Peralta has collected 45 strikeouts while allowing just five runs over 36 innings. The 25-year-old lines up for a rematch with the Reds at home early next week.
Peralta (6-1) allowed one run on one hit and three walks over 7.1 innings Friday, striking out nine and earning the win over Arizona. Peralta completely dominated the Diamondbacks on Friday, carrying a no-hitter into the eighth inning before yielding a single to Nick Ahmed. He was charged with a run after Josh Reddick came in to score with Brad Boxberger on the mound. Over his last five starts, Peralta has racked up 39 strikeouts while allowing just four runs over 32 innings. He'll carry a 2.25 ERA into next week's projected start in Cincinnati.
Peralta (5-1) earned the win in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader at Washington after allowing one run on four hits with seven strikeouts and one walk over seven innings. The 24-year-old took advantage of the shortened game as part of the twin bill and delivered the first complete game of his career. The right-hander surrendered a solo homer to Kyle Schwarber during the fourth inning but otherwise kept the Nationals off the board. Peralta has a 2.38 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 83:24 K:BB across 56.2 innings through 11 starts this season.
Peralta didn't factor into the decision after giving up two runs on three hits and four walks while fanning seven across 4.2 innings. Peralta might have ended just one out away from recording his fifth win of the season, but he showed swing-and-miss stuff once again -- he's fanned at least seven in nine straight appearances and owns what would be a career-best figure of 13.8 K/9 through his first 10 appearances of the campaign. He has also posted a 2.54 ERA in that span -- that would also be a career-best figure for the 25-year-old right-hander. Peralta's next turn to pitch is slated to come Friday on the road against the Nationals.
