Brewers make it interesting, but lose 10-8 to the Astros

Brewers make it interesting, but lose 10-8 to the Astros

Fastball Freddy becoming too predictable? Fastball Freddy Peralta got the start this evening against the American League West leading Houston Astros. Coming off a very strong start against Miami, there was likely optimism that he would replicate a similar performance against Houston. He did not. Over 4+ innings, the Astros hitters had their way with the young pitcher. It started to go awry in the second inning. Tony Kemp started things off with a single. Later in the inning, Tyler White worked the count to 3-2. As Peralta is apt to do when he falls behind, he threw White a fastball. Being...

Peralta, Moustakas help Brewers cruise to 5-1 win over Marlins

They got exactly that — for the most part — cruising to a 5-1 win over the Miami Marlins Thursday. It helped that Freddy Peralta was given an early cushion to work with....

Game Thread #63: Milwaukee Brewers (34-28) vs. Miami Marlins (23-36)

Freddy Peralta (2-2, 5.68 ERA) vs. Caleb Smith (3-3, 3.10 ERA) The Brewers’ first couple of games against the Marlins have been forgettable, to say the least. Despite that, they’re still tied in the All-Important Win Column with the Chicago Cubs and have a 2-game lead in the wildcard race. They’ll hope to get back on the winning track Sunday afternoon against Caleb Smith, who has racked up the strikeouts this year but carries an extreme flyball tendency that could mean we’re in for an interesting warm afternoon at Miller Park. First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. CDT. With a lefty...

Jimmy Nelson will start on Wednesday for the Milwaukee Brewers; Freddy Peralta likely to start as well

Jimmy Nelson will start on Wednesday for the Milwaukee Brewers; Freddy Peralta likely to start as well

Nelson’s long road to recovery will finally come to an end as he returns to pitch in the majors for the first time on Wednesday. Earlier today, the Brewers placed starter Jhoulys Chacin on the IL with a back injury, opening up two spots in the rotation. The Brewers filled the spots for now with bullpen arms, but we now know who will fill those two spots. The first starter is the big piece of news here: Jimmy Nelson will make his first start in the majors since 2017 on Wednesday: The Brewers will call up Jimmy Nelson to start Wednesday against the Marlins at Miller Park. His long road...

Brewers shut down by Phillies bullpen, lose 6-4

The Brewers chased another starter early, but failed to score over the final 6 innings W - Vince Velazquez (2-2)L - Freddy Peralta (2-2)SV - Hector Neris (9)HR - PHI: Rhys Hoskins (12); MIL: Christian Yelich (20), Orlando Arcia (5) Box Score For 4 innings Friday night, it looked like we were headed for another crazy back-and-forth slugfest at Miller Park. The Brewers and Phillies traded runs in the first two innings before the Brewers were able to score 2 in the bottom of the 3rd to take a 4-2 lead. That chased Phillies starter Jerad Eickhoff early, but the Brewers struggled to get anything...

Game Thread #51: Milwaukee Brewers (28-22) vs. Cincinnati Reds (22-26)

Zach Davies (5-0, 1.54 ERA) vs. Luis Castillo (5-1, 1.90 ERA) The Brewers were shut out on Tuesday night, and things don’t get much easier on a quick turnaround Wednesday afternoon. Reds ace Luis Castillo takes the mound opposite Zach Davies in what could be another pitching duel. Castillo held the Brewers to 1 run on 1 hit when he faced them in Cincinnati last month — luckily, that was the game where Freddy Peralta threw 8 shutout innings and the Brewers were able to escape with a 1-0 win. This time, the Brewers will also be without Christian Yelich, who continues to sit due to back...
