Brewers closeout first half with a win in Arizona (AUDIO)

The Milwaukee Brewers ended the first half of the season by snapping a four game losing streak with a 5-1 victory Sunday in Arizona.  The win sends the Brewers to the All-Star break with a 38-56 record.

Milwaukee starting pitcher Wily Peralta continued his recent hot streak on the mound.  Peralta allowed just one-run on seven hits while fanning eight D-Backs for his second straight win.  Over his last three starts, Peralta has allowed just one-run in 21 1/3 innings.  After an shaky start Sunday, Peralta was able to settle in…

AUDIO: Wily Peralta on his day :13Logan Schaefer and Jean Segura paved the way for the Brewers offense.  Schaefer had a pair of hits including his 2nd homer of the season.  Segura had 3-hits, moving his average to .325 on the season.  He s tied for 4th (with Buster Posey of San Francisco) in the NL batting race behind Yadier Molina (.341) and Allen Craig (.333)of St. Louis and Michael Cuddyer (.330) of Colorado.

The Brewers will return to the field after the break Friday as the Miami Marlins visit Miller Park.  At 18-games under .500, Milwaukee is at the bottom of the NL Central trailing the Chicago Cubs by 4.5 games for 4th.  St. Louis sits on top of the division at 57-36, 19.5 games better than the Brewers.
