Wily Peralta is coming off of his worst start of the year and will be looking to get back on track when the Milwaukee Brewers face Kevin Correia and the Minnesota Twins on Thursday night.
Last Saturday, Wily Peralta lost his third straight game and his fifth of the season when he allowed six earned runs against the Chicago Cubs. He went 5.2 innings in that start and gave up five hits while walking two and striking out five. He gave up two home runs in that start, but he has only given up nine in his 69.1 innings this season.
Brian Dozier and Kurt Suzuki are both 1-for-3 against Peralta in their careers. No one on the Twins has hit a home run off of him yet.
Veteran starter Kevin Correia pitched very well against the New York Yankees on the road last weekend, but all he got out of it was a no decision. He gave up just one run on nine hits in six innings of work in that game while walking one and striking out three. That was a rare good start for Correia, who is 2-6 on the season with a 5.87 ERA.
Jonathan Lucroy has always liked going up against Correia, going 5-for-12 against him with two doubles and no strikeouts. Mark Reynolds has a .286 batting average in 49 at-bats against the right-hander with three doubles and three home runs.
