Pitcher does it all for Brewers

CINCINNATI — Wily Peralta doubled home the game's only runs — the first RBIs of his career — and repeatedly escaped trouble during his eight innings to help the Brewers beat the Reds 2-0 on Friday.

Milwaukee is 21-9 overall and 12-3 on the road, both best in the majors.

Peralta made his fifth quality start of the season, holding the Reds to three hits and two walks. He escaped scoring threats in the first, fourth, fifth and sixth innings and struck out Jay Bruce three times with runners in scoring position.

Bruce also struck out against Francisco Rodriguez, whose perfect ninth gave him 14 saves in as many chances.

Peralta put the Brewers ahead with his 10th career hit. Lyle Overbay opened the fifth with a single, and Caleb Gindl walked with one out. Jean Segura forced Gindl at second, bringing up Peralta, who had struck out in his first at-bat.

He doubled to rightfield on Mike Leake's first pitch. Peralta improved to 10-for-72 (.139) with 30 strikeouts in his career.

Leake gave up seven hits and struck out five in going eight innings for the second time this season.
