MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - Wily Peralta lost his fourth consecutive start Monday, as the Milwaukee Brewers fell to the Minnesota Twins 6-3 in an Interleague game at Miller Park. The rookie right-hander gave up four runs – three earned – in five innings, while giving up five hits and a season-high five walks. Peralta is now 3-6. Twins’ starter Kevin Correia picked up his first win since May 9th despite giving up three homers in six innings. He’s now 5-4. Glen Perkins pitched a 1-2-3 ninth to get his 10th save. The Brewers never led in this one. The Twins were up 4-1 after five innings. Milwaukee made it a 4-3 game before Minnesota pulled away with a pair of late solo homers by Joe Mauer and Chris Parmelee. Mauer’s homer was first ruled a double, but replays confirmed it went over the fence and the umpires overruled their original call. Brewers’ center-fielder Carlos Gomez homered twice, the second time in three games he’s done that. Jean Segura also went yard for Milwaukee, which has now lost three straight. The Brewers were without both Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez. Braun says he’s had a lingering sore right thumb for a while. He did pinch hit yesterday. Braun lined out to third to end the game – and that ended his 30-game Interleague hitting streak. Manager Ron Roenicke says Braun might sit out for a few days. The Brewers are trying to avoid further injury to Ramirez, after he sprained his left knee twice since March while sliding into a base. He had a scheduled off day. The Twins have now won 2 of 3 after a 10-game losing streak. They’ll play the Brewers again tonight at Miller Park. Right-handed reliever Alfredo Figaro will start against Twins’ southpaw Scott Diamond. Pregame coverage on WHBL begins at 6:35.
