He allowed three runs on nine hits in that game while striking out six batters and walking no one. Peralta is now 7-5 on the year for the Brewers with a solid 2.98 ERA and he has improve his walk rate by more than a walk per nine innings.

Collectively, the Rockies who have faced Peralta have hit .333 against him through 21 at-bats.
The Rockies have a lot of injuries to pitchers throughout their organization, which is why Christian Friedrich is getting his first start since 2012.

He has given up 91 hits in 67.1 innings and has an extremely high 1.723 WHIP.
