The series was dominated by Brewers pitching.  In fact, the Brewers staff hasn’t allowed a run in 35 innings, a streak that dates back to July 14 in Arizona, heading into the all-star break.  The 35 straight scoreless innings surpasses the previous franchise mark of 31, set back in 1990.

Wily Peralta set the pace by working 8-innings, allowing 2-hits, walking 2 and striking out 7.  Peralta (7-9) struck out 7 and saw his ERA drop to 4.30.

Up next for the Brewers, the first of a four-game series against the San Diego Padres at Miller Park tonight.
