Milwaukee Brewers vs. Colorado Rockies, 5-13

Posted May 14, 2018

Brewers pitching prospect Freddy Peralta made his major league debut on Sunday against the Rockies at Coors Field.

The 21-year-old, recalled Saturday from Triple-A Colorado Springs, walked two in 5 2/3 innings and set a Milwaukee rookie record for strikeouts. Niko Goodrum homered and had three hits for the Tigers. New York said he was removed as a precaution because of the length of the inning and the 59-minute rain delay that preceded it. "Like (Saturday), when I told him what was going on, he started crying".

Dahl and Tony Wolters homered and Jon Gray (4-5) allowed six runs on 10 hits and fanned 10 for the Rockies. Peralta froze Charlie Blackmon on a 92 mph fastball for a called third strike and was replaced by Matt Albers. Colorado has to deal with the fact that other teams enjoy the thin air of Coors Field as well. "I almost started to cry".

Peralta has a solid three pitch mix that includes a solid fastball/slider combo and a change up that's still a work in progress.


His 13 strikeouts are the fourth-most in major league debuts and the most since Washington's Stephen Strasburg had 14 on June 8, 2010, according to the Brewers.

The Rockies have won five of their last six after a win and they have won 9 of Gray's last 13 home starts.

Suter, whose fifth inning double stood out as the Brewers' only extra-base hit, went five innings and allowed four runs and seven hits. The Brewers improved to 23-16 on the year and remained half a game behind the Cardinals in the NL Central race. "Yeah, he's a good pitcher". He put a pretty good swing on it. Unfortunately, I didn't get the job done.

Christian Yelich's two-run single gave Milwaukee a 3-0 lead.


The Brewers offense has slashed.240/.311/.384 on its way to 3.8 runs scored per game in 2018, including 4.0 runs per game over the team's last 10 games and 4.2 per game over the team's last five contests (3-2 SU).

Colorado won the opening game of their six game homestand but they have dropped the last three entering Saturday after blowing a lead in Friday's contest.

"We did not believe Chase was going to be able to pitch tomorrow", Counsell said. He has six in his career. He reached in 30 straight in 2014.

Brewers: RHP Zach Davis (right shoulder) played catch again, and the Brewers hope to know more Monday about his availability.


Brewers: RHP Junior Guerra (2-3, 3.09) will open a three-game series in Arizona on Monday night.
