Brewers look st extend winning streak to five

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Game two of the four game set has an intriguing match-up of starting pitching after Milwaukee took the first game. The Atlanta Braves (49-27) will have staff ace Mike Foltynewics (6-4, 2.02) on the bump, and our Milwaukee Brewers (52-35) counter with rookie phenom Freddy Peralta (3-1, 2.28) looking to rebound from a rough first inning in his last start in Cincinnati.

The Brewers go defense at shortstop with Tyler Saladino, and Brad Miller takes the second base job for an evening. Travis Shaw is back at third.

Milwaukee has a chance to push their NL Central lead to 2.5 games with this afternoon's Cubs' loss to the Reds.

Is "rookie phenom" too strong a term for Freddy Peralta?
