Lefty Francisco Liriano will be hoping to finally get his first win of the season when the Pittsburgh Pirates face Wily Peralta and the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night.
Francisco Liriano picked up his fourth consecutive no decision last week against the St. Louis Cardinals and remained 0-3 on the season. He made it through five innings in that outing and gave up three runs on five hits while walking a season-high four batters and striking out five. He now has a 4.64 ERA on the year.
Liriano has had a hard time getting Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez out in their matchups over the years. Gomez has nine hits in 18 at-bats against him with a double, a triple two home runs and four RBI.
Right-hander Wily Peralta picked up his second loss of the season last week against the Arizona Diamondbacks, but he did give up just two hits in six innings in that outing. He scattered 11 hits while striking out three Diamondbacks in the game. He is now 4-2 on the season with a very solid 2.17 ERA.
Peralta has faced Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez six times in his career and has held him to zero hits and has struck him out three times. Neil Walker has faced Peralta six times over the years and has three hits, including one home run.
