Wily Peralta is a good pitcher. In time, he can be an excellent pitcher. Good pitchers and excellent pitchers and Cy Young award winning pitchers and Hall of Fame pitchers can all have an off night. On Monday, Wily Peralta had an off night.
The big right hander lasted just 3.1 innings against the Padres, allowing six earned runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out just two. It was maybe Peralta's worst start since August 29 last year when he gave up six runs in three innings as San Diego scored at least one run in each of the first five innings, including three in the second frame.
Preston Guilet didn't exactly have a good showing with his new team, either. Recently claimed off waivers by Milwaukee, he came on to pitch the seventh inning and allowed six earned runs on four hits and two walks, including a three-run homer from Yangervis Solarte, his second of the night.
The Brewers offense, meanwhile, was actually decent, picking up five runs on nine hits and four walks. Scooter Gennett hit a home run while Adam Lind, Shane Peterson, and Jonathan Lucroy all reached multiple times. It wasn't even close to enough with the pitching today, though.
Milwaukee and San Diego play again Tuesday, with first pitch at 7:10 CT.
