Last night, the Brewers managed just two hits during a 1-0 defeat. SP Jhoulys Chacin allowed six hits and one run over six plus innings for Milwaukee, who has dropped three straight overall.

Rookie right-hander Freddy Peralta (1-0 3.72 ERA) will make his third career major league start for the Brewers. Through nine plus innings, Peralta has struck out 18 batters and owns a 1.24 WHIP. The Pittsburgh Pirates have split their first 72 games and are trying to stay in contention in the NL Central standings.
