Indians 11, Royals 2: Corey Kluber became the American League's first six-game winner and Cleveland beat visiting Kansas City.
Peralta, 21, who is from the Dominican Republic, was scheduled to start Saturday night for Triple-A Colorado Springs.
While the Brewers offense was red hot Friday night, it was ice cold Saturday, as Milwaukee lost to the Rockies 4-0. The Rockies also should be able to get to this rookie and create some runs early. He gave up four hits in 6 1/3 innings, striking out six and walking four while helping Colorado snap a three-game losing streak.
Jeremy Jeffress (3-0) pitched a scoreless ninth for the win and Josh Hader got three outs for his sixth save. Pina and Saladino led off with singles. He has 49 strikeouts and 11 walks over 46.2 innings of work. "I left it up and out over the plate". Suter earned the win in his last outing, which came in relief at home against the Indians Tuesday.
Nolan Arenado tripled ahead of Story's first-inning homer and doubled ahead of his run-scoring double in the third. Today he gets to face a Milwaukee lineup that is among the least productive in the league.
Rockies: RHP Jon Gray (4-4, 4.24 ERA) has won three straight starts since losing a career-high three in a row. Those home stats were skewed by a poor start April 26 when Peralta allowed nine runs (eight earned) in 3 2/3 innings. Shaw, who homered and had another RBI single earlier, then drove a solid single to center to score the decisive run and complete a comeback from six runs down.
Colorado has recorded 22.5 Runs + Hits + Errors per game over its last 10 games and 22.0 over its last five. But he was scratched from that assignment and made the 60-mile trip to Denver, instead. The Brewers are averaging just 3.82 runs per game this season while allowing 3.90 per contest as well. On the season, Gray has a 4.24 ERA with a 1.22 WHIP. Gray, so sharp in his last three starts, fell to 4-5 and saw his ERA rise to 4.85.
As he walked off the mound, the enormity of the moment nearly overcame him. The pitching has really carried the Rockies so far this season and Gray is on a roll.
Despite the fact that they hit substantially better at home than on the road, the Rockies have struggled at Coors Field. Milwaukee recently got Corey Knebel back after he missed more than a month with a hamstring injury to bolster their bullpen.
