Game Chat: Milwaukee Brewers vs Philadelphia Phillies 4-24

The 7-11 Milwaukee Brewers are taking on the 9-9 Philadelphia Phillies in the series finale today at Miller Park

The game is slated to start at 1:10, you can watch it on FSWI or listen to it on 62o.

Wily Peralta is taking the mound today as the Milwaukee Brewers are taking on the Philadelphia Phillies. Peralta looks to get back on track and get his first win of the season.

In four starts Peralta is 0-3 with an 8.35 ERA. The rest of the starting rotation isn’t much better as Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Sentinel Journal pointed out yesterday.

To make matters worse Peralta has struggled against the Phillies, compiling a 2-2 record with a 6.17 ERA against them in four career starts.

Peralta is slated to go against Jerad Eickhoff who is 1-2 with a 1.89 ERA in three starts so far this season. Last season against the Phillies (Peralta only faced them once) Peralta threw seven scoreless innings against them.

Wily’s struggles as of late haven’t gone unnoticed, but even with Jimmy Nelson the Milwaukee Brewers starting rotation has a league worst ERA. To put more pressure on Wily would be silly at this point.

While he’s no where near 2014 form, he’s also surronded by the likes of Zach Davies, and while we wait for Matt Garza to return from his DL Stint, we don’t know which Garza is going to show up.

It’s times like these that we need to remember that we are rebuilding, that Stearns has a plan, and his plans have worked before. If you don’t believe me, just look at the Astros, he took them from consecutive 100-loss seasons to where they are now.

The Milwaukee Brewers are looking to avoid their second sweep by the Phillies in Miller Park since 2014.

Eickhoff has never faced the Brewers, he’s faced Kirk Nieuwenhuis when Nieuwenhuis was with the Mets. Nieuwenhuis has two doubles against Eickhoff in three at-bats.
