MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - Wily Peralta threw his first career shutout Tuesday night as the Milwaukee Brewers topped Cincinnati 2-0 at Miller Park. The rookie right-hander tossed a three-hitter with four walks and six strikeouts in 113 pitches. It was Milwaukee’s first complete game since May 7th of 2011. Peralta was also the first Brewers’ starter to make the ninth inning since June 22nd of last year, when Zack Greinke went nine in a 10-inning win over the White Sox in Chicago. Peralta called his shutout a “blessing.” His record is now 6-9. Logan Schafer provided the game’s only offense with his first homer of the year, a two-run shot in the fifth inning off Tony Cingrani.  Cingrani struck out 10 in seven innings, giving up three hits and a pair of walks.  Ryan Braun played six innings in his first game since June 10th. He singled in three trips, as he continues to struggle with nerve damage in his right hand. Norichika Aoki was a late scratch with a sore left elbow, giving Schafer a start in right field. The Brewers have won two straight, while Cincinnati lost its fifth straight in Milwaukee. The Reds have also dropped four-of-five overall. The two teams will wrap up their series this afternoon at Miller Park. Right-hander Johnny Hellweg is scheduled to start for the Crew against Reds’ right-hander Mike Leake.  Pregame coverage on WHBL begins at 12:35.
