Peralta struggles in loss to the Rockies

Wily Peralta had seemingly turned the corner, but the Milwaukee Brewers right hander hit another bump in the road, falling 8-3 to the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field in Denver last night.

By the time Peralta was pulled in the 4th inning, he had surrendered 8-runs.  The Rockies batted around in the 2nd inning, scoring 4-runs and the rout was on.

Tyler Chatwood, who started and earned the victory on the mound for the Rockies, drove in two runs with a double in the second, helping his own cause.  Chatwood struck out a career-high 11 Brewers on the night.

Carlos Gomez clubbed his 17th home run of the season in the 9th inning for the Brewers.
