Brewers offense ice cold in 4-0 loss to Colorado

If Anderson needs a DL stint, the Milwaukee Brewers will let prospect Freddy Peralta make his Major League debut on Mother's Day. First pitch was scheduled for 8:10 pm ET.

Brewers: RHP Zach Davis (right shoulder) played catch again, and the Brewers hope to know more Monday about his availability. Vying for the backup job is former first-round pick Paxton Lynch and Chad Kelly, the last player picked in last year's draft. Colorado has covered the spread four times in its last seven games and the total has gone under in five of those seven. He struck out Yelich but then Aguilar homered to left to make it 7-0.

Chase Anderson was scratched from Saturday's start in Colorado due to an illness.

With Arenado's two-out single in the sixth, he has now reached base safely in 23 consecutive games since April 12, the second longest streak of his career. The four-run start raises his ERA to 5.14 on the season. In four home starts this season, Peralta is 2-1, 5.95.

Colorado will send out Jon Gray (4-4, 4.24 ERA), who has won three straight starts since losing a career-high three in a row.

A 21-year-old right-hander who was 5-1 this season at Colorado Springs, Peralta (1-0) didn't allow a hit until David Dahl hit a sharp single to center with one out in the sixth.

The Brewers have hit 11 home runs in their last 10 games.

Freeland pitched effectively into the seventh inning, Story homered twice and doubled to drive in Colorado's runs, and the Rockies beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-0 Saturday night.

Shaw and Jesus Aguilar homered for the Brewers, who opened a 7-0 lead by the sixth. Jake McGee (0-2) took the loss after giving up a run on three hits with a strikeout in one inning of relief.

"I hadn't seen the good slider", Gray said. He threw seven innings, allowing no runs on four hits with a walk and eight strikeouts in a 4-2 Colorado win.

In seven starts with the Sky Sox, Peralta has managed a 3.63 ERA in 34 2/3 innings. The pitching has really carried the Rockies so far this season and Gray is on a roll.

"He got his emotions out in the first three pitches and kept getting better", Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said.

Peralta's 13 strikeouts were the most ever by a Brewers pitcher making his big-league debut, as well as the most ever by a Brewers rookie. "Especially with this park, this park, the ball flies".

One night after scoring 11 runs and rallying to beat the Colorado Rockies, the Milwaukee Brewers' bats went cold. Look for this one to fall under the total as Gray does his part on the mound and Suter holds his own.
