Peralta Outlasts Wainwright For Series Opener Win

The Milwaukee Brewers picked up another game in the NL-Central standings with their 7-4 win over rival St. Louis Cardinals Friday.

Wily Peralta (13-6, 3.52)  faced-off against Cardinals ace and All-Start starting pitcher Adam Wainwright and out pitched him to earn his 13th win of the season. Peralta went 6 2/3 innings scattering two runs on five hits while recording three strikeouts. With the win, Brewers starters have a 1.81 ERA over the last 11 games including 10 quality starts.

Will Smith, Jeremy Jeffress and Zach Duke were used out of the bullpen before Francisco Rodriguez recorded his Major League leading 32nd save.

The Brewers offense helped Peralta settle in early. Aramis Ramirez, who led the team with three hits, hit a solo home run in the second inning for a 1-0 lead and then followed up with a run scoring double in the third inning scoring Jonathan Lucroy making score 2-0.

Ryan Braun would make the score 3-0 in the fifth inning hitting a ground-rule double to right field scoring Carlos Gomez.

Jonathan Lucroy put the game out of reach in the following inning. With the bases loaded and one out, Lucroy hit a bases clearing double scoring Jean Segura, Elian Herrara and Gomez which caused Cardinals Manager Mike Mattheney to pull Wainwright.

Wainwright (13-6, 2.26 ERA) took the loss after going 5 1/3 innings allowing seven runs on nine hits.

After Wainwright exited, Ryan Braun hit his second double of the night scoring Lucroy.

The Cardinals finally got to Peralta in the sixth inning when Matt Holliday homered to left field. In the following inning the score turned 7-2 when St. Louis got a rbi single by all-star Matt Carpenter.

Two more runs were scored in the bottom of the ninth by St. Louis causing Rodriguez to close out the game.

Braun, Lucroy, Segura and Herrar all added two hits in the win. The Brewers had 12 total.

Game two Saturday will be a 7:10 first pitch. Jimmy Nelson was suppose to start for the Brewers, but was scratched because of a blister on his throwing hand. The Cardinals will start Justin Masterson, who will be making his team debut after being traded for Thursday before the trade deadline.
