Peralta does it all in Brewers win

Wily Peralta did it all last night as the Milwaukee Brewers snapped their brief 2-game losing streak with a 2-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ballpark.

Making his fifth quality start of the season, Peralta held the Reds to 3-hits over eight innings, while striking out seven to improve to
4-1.  As a team, the Brewers now have put together 24 quality starts this season.

But Peralta also did it with his bat too.  He drove in the only two runs with a 5th-inning double, the first two rbi’s of his career.

Ron Roenicke went to his closer, Francisco Rodriguez to work the 9th.  He came away with his 14th save in 14 chances this season.  It’s also the 318th career save, tying him with Rick Aguilera for 17th on the all-time list.
