PHOENIX, AZ (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers entered the All-Star break on a high note, winning at Arizona Sunday, 5-1. Wily Peralta struck out eight in seven innings, as he won his third consecutive start to improve to 7-9. The rookie right-hander gave up his only earned run in 21-and-a-third innings of his July starts. The Brewers scored three in the first inning and never looked back. Carlos Gomez highlighted the rally with a two-run single, and Logan Schafer belted a two-run homer in the fifth. Jean Segura went 3-for-3 with a walk, and he enters the break leading the National League in hits with 121. Miguel Montero hit a solo shot for Arizona’s only run. Ian Kennedy gave up all five Milwaukee runs in six-and-a-third innings. He lost his seventh straight attempt to get his 50th career win, and he’s now 3-6. Milwaukee finished its season series with the Diamondbacks at 1-6. The Crew enters the All-Star break at 38-56, trailing only Miami for the worst winning percentage in the National League. Segura and Gomez are at the All-Star Game to be played in New York Tuesday night. The Brewers resume play on Friday night at home against Miami. Milwaukee will have Ryan Braun back from the bereavement list by then. Khris Davis took Braun’s place the last four games, and was sent back down to Triple-“A” Nashville Sunday.
