WASHINGTON, DC (WHBL) - Nothing seems to be going right for the Milwaukee Brewers – not even during a 4-0 victory at Washington Tuesday night, which ended a six-game losing streak. Wily Peralta was working on a three-hit shutout when he left the game in the sixth inning after straining his left hamstring. He became the third Milwaukee pitcher to leave a game this season with hamstring problems – Marco Estrada and Jim Henderson being the others. Afterward, Peralta said he hoped to make his next start, and avoid joining Brewer starters Estrada and Alfredo Figaro on the disabled list. Peralta matched Stephen Strasburg pitch-for-pitch before he got hurt. Strasburg had a no-decision, giving up three hits in seven scoreless innings with eight strikeouts. Milwaukee scored the only runs of the game in the eighth inning. Juan Francisco broke the deadlock with a two-run double. Martin Maldonado had an R-B-I single, and Jeff Bianchi hit a run-scoring single. Washington failed to get an extra-base hit, going 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position. Henderson pitched the seventh to get the win. He’s 3-2. Drew Storen took the loss for the Nationals, giving up all four runs in relief. He’s 2-2. Milwaukee won its 14th road game against 26 losses. They’ll play the Nationals in D-C again tonight. Pregame coverage on WHBL starts at 4:30.
