Brewers Set to Take Division Lead with Freddy Peralta on the Mound

The Brewers are starting right-hander Freddy Peralta in the first game of this road set. In his last outing, Peralta earned the win while allowing one run on two hits in 6.1 innings pitched against the Marlins. His 200 strikeouts mark is the sixth-highest figure in MLB. Across his last nine starts (53.2 innings), he holds a 6-0 record with a 2.01 ERA and 82:11 K:BB. The Cardinals, out of playoff contention, are going through the motions at this point in the season. They have won five of six recently, but the Brewers have a chance to take the division with a series win. Milwaukee has the advantage, given the Cardinals' weaker pitcher.
