Yesterday's Results

Brewers 3, Giants 1

Wily Peralta became the first 14-game winner in MLB with another strong performance. He pitched 6 2/3 innings yesterday, allowing only one run while striking out nine. Meanwhile, the offense did not have a great day yesterday, but they had enough. Ryan Braun got the Brewers on the board early with a first inning RBI double, Khris Davis had an RBI double in the fifth, and Mark Reynolds also recorded an RBI with a sacrifice fly.
