Wily Peralta was handed his ninth loss with an ugly start against the Giants on Friday, surrendering six runs in only three innings.
The Giants kept piling up the hits, recording nine of them along with a pair of walks over Peralta's three frames. The right-hander only struck out one of the 20 batters he faced. It's his second poor start in a row after he managed to lower his ERA all the way to 3.27. It's now 3.82 and he carries a 1.35 WHIP and a 122/51 K/BB ratio with it. Peralta will make his next start at Wrigley Field against the Cubs on Wednesday. Aug 30 - 1:45 AM

Wily Peralta was bombed for eight runs -- seven earned -- over five innings Saturday in a loss to the Pirates.

Peralta and the Brewers were leading 2-0 after three innings, but Pedro Alvarez slugged a go-ahead three-run homer in the fourth and then the Bucs piled on five more runs in the fifth. Peralta will carry a 15-8 record, 3.56 ERA, and 1.30 WHIP into his next start on the road in San Francisco. The Brewers need him to return to dominance.
Aug 23 - 10:31 PM

Wily Peralta allowed three runs over 6 1/3 innings in a loss to the Cubs on Tuesday.

Peralta gave up seven hits and two walks in the outing. The loss snapped an impressive five-game winning streak that has Peralta tied atop the National League in wins. The right-hander is 14-7 with a 3.46 ERA through 24 starts, and he'll have another tough matchup Sunday at the Dodgers.
Aug 12 - 10:37 PM

Wily Peralta fanned a career-high nine while holding the Giants to one run over 6 2/3 innings Thursday in his 14th win.

Peralta took over the major league lead for victories. It doesn't seem like he's been that good -- his ERA is 3.46, he's given up 18 homers and he just today cracked the century mark in strikeouts today -- but he has been awfully consistent, allowing more than four earned runs just twice all year. Plus, he'd seem to have the build and delivery to avoid wearing down during the stretch run.
Aug 7 - 5:47 PM

Wily Peralta pitched six and two-thirds innings of two-run ball and improved to 13-6 as the Brewers defeated the Cardinals on Friday.

Peralta's control was a little shaky, as he walked four to go with his three strikeouts, but he was otherwise solid. He allowed just five hits and did a good job of working efficiently despite the walks, as he had only thrown 97 pitches when he was taken out late in the seventh. The 25-year old holds a 3.52 ERA and a 13-6 record. He'll face the Giants in his next start.
Aug 2 - 1:48 AM

Wily Peralta allowed just one run and three hits over seven innings in a victory over the Reds on Monday.

That's the same line he had eight days ago against the Cardinals, except the run was unearned in that outing. He's brought his ERA back down from 3.95 to 3.58 with the consecutive wins.
Jul 21 - 11:44 PM

Wily Peralta allowed only an unearned run on three hits over seven innings in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

On a day he didn't need to be his finest, Peralta turned in his best start in over two months. The right-hander struck out five without walking a batter, and all three Cardinals hits against him were of the one-base variety. It's a strong finish to a breakout first half for Peralta, who goes into the break with a 10-6 record, 3.72 ERA and 1.29 WHIP.
Jul 13 - 5:17 PM

Wily Peralta was battered by the Phillies, allowing nine runs in 4 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss.

The Brewers gave Peralta a 5-1 lead after one inning thanks to Lyle Overbay's grand slam, but the right-hander gave all five runs back in the top of the second. Overall, Peralta yielded eight hits and three walks while striking out four. He now has a 3.95 ERA, a 1.34 WHIP, and an 84/31 K/BB ratio. Peralta will take his team into the second half with a home start against the Cardinals on Sunday.
Jul 8 - 11:49 PM

Wily Peralta wasn't great but made it through six innings Wednesday, allowing four runs on nine hits and three walks in a loss to the Blue Jays.

He was pretty fortunate to only allow the four runs, as the Jays were all over the bases. Peralta struck out four and needed 113 pitches to cover the six frames. The righty has yielded four runs in consecutive outings after posting three straight quality starts in what has been an up-and-down but ultimately positive season. He'll get the Phillies next.
Jul 2 - 4:15 PM

Wily Peralta improved to 9-5, allowing four runs over six innings as the Brewers defeated the Rockies 7-4 on Thursday.

Peralta made one big mistake, allowing a grand slam to Ryan Wheeler in the fourth inning. Otherwise, he kept the Rockies off the board, allowing eight hits and walking two while striking out seven. Peralta continues to pitch well for the Brewers, carrying a 3.20 ERA, a 1.25 WHIP, and a 76/25 K/BB ratio. He'll go for his 10th win in his next start on the road against the Blue Jays.
Jun 27 - 12:25 AM

Wily Peralta yielded three runs on nine hits over seven innings in a win against the Diamondbacks on Monday.

Peralta struck out six and didn't issue a free pass. The young right-hander spent three days in his native Dominican Republic after Wednesday's start due to what he called "family business." Peralta said he maintained his normal routine despite the excursion. The 25-year-old is now 7-5 with a 2.98 ERA and 1.23 WHIP. Peralta has a rough matchup next time around in Colorado.
Jun 17 - 12:44 AM

Wily Peralta improved to 6-5, allowing one run over 6 1/3 innings as the Brewers defeated the Mets 3-1 on Wednesday.

Peralta bounced back from a pair of recent rough outings by dominating the Mets, holding them to four hits and a walk while striking out three. The right-hander has flown under the radar with his great season, posting a 2.90 ERA with a 1.23 WHIP and a 61/22 K/BB ratio in 80 2/3 innings. Peralta will match up against the Diamondbacks on the road in his next start.
Jun 11 - 10:35 PM

Wily Peralta improved to 5-5, allowing four runs over five innings as the Brewers defeated the Twins 8-5 on Thursday.

Peralta made one egregious mistake, a grand slam to Oswaldo Arcia, but otherwise limited the Twins' offense. He allowed five hits, walked three, and struck out four in the effort. His most recent two starts aside, Peralta has quietly been reliable, and now owns a 3.03 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP, and a 58/21 K/BB ratio in 74 1/3 innings. He'll get the Mets on the road in his next start.
Jun 5 - 11:55 PM

Wily Peralta gave up six earned runs in 5 2/3 innings Saturday as the Brewers fell to the Cubs.

It was an off day for Peralta, who entered the outing with a 2.12 ERA and finished it at 2.73. The Cubs tagged him for five hits -- including two Anthony Rizzo home runs. Peralta will try to get back on the right rack in his next scheduled start at Minnesota's Target Field.
May 31 - 7:22 PM

Wily Peralta tossed six innings of one-run ball but the Brewers lost to the Marlins on Saturday.

The Brewers scored just one run, and that was in the top of the eighth inning. Peralta fanned five batters and watched his ERA drop to 2.12, but he's now 4-4 on the year. A home start against the Cubs is next.
