Jhonny Peralta went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer Thursday against the Brewers.

The homer off Taylor Jungmann was his first since way back on Aug. 1. This once appeared to be shaping up as one of the best seasons of his career, but instead it looks like he'll finish up with something very close to his career .267/.330/.425 line.

Even with the cold streak, Peralta is batting .274/.332/.414 with 16 homers, 61 RBI and 57 runs scored overall.
