Wily Peralta was reinstated earlier Tuesday after a two-month stay on the disabled list and pitched six solid innings to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 5-2 win over the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park.
Peralta (2-5) allowed 2 runs on 5 hits, to go along with two walks and three strike outs. It’s the first win for Peralta since May 6.
Gerardo Parra did the bulk of the work offensively, finishing a home run shy of the cycle. He also scored three of the Brewers five runs. Adam Lind also returned to the lineup and drove in a pair of runs, helping the Brewers snap a three-game losing streak.
The loss goes to Matt Cain who fell to 2-2.
Francisco Rodriguez recorded his 23rd save in as many opportunities after blanking the Giants in the 9th inning.
The series is tied at a game apiece with the rubber match this afternoon in San Francisco.
