Peralta Comes Back Strong, Brewers Top Giants

(San Francisco, CA) -- Wily Peralta gets his first win since May 6th, as the Milwaukee Brewers win at San Francisco 5-to-2 to end a three-game losing streak. Peralta, back from a strained oblique muscle, retires his first six batters and throws six-plus innings -- giving up two runs on five hits with a pair of walks and three strikeouts. Peralta is now 2-and-5. Francisco Rodriguez earns his 23rd save. Matt Cain takes the loss, giving up four runs in six frames. He's 2-and-2. Gerardo Parra falls a homer short of the cycle and scores three times as he extends his team-best hitting streak to 12 games. Ryan Braun misses his second straight game with a sore back. Adam Lind returns from the same condition and drives in a pair. Carlos Gomez has an R-B-I double, to help give the Giants only their second loss in eleven games since the All-Star break. The Crew will close out its San Francisco series late this afternoon.



Crew Has Six-Man Rotation, Maybe Not For Long

(San Francisco, CA) -- With Wily Peralta's return, the Brewers are going with a six-man rotation right now. Kyle Lohse could still be the odd man out as Friday's trade deadline nears. It may be hard for Milwaukee to make a deal for the 36-year-old Lohse, who's 5-and-12 with an E-R-A near six-and-a-quarter in the final year of his contract. He has only made it to the seventh inning three times since May 15th, when he tossed a two-hit shutout against the Mets in New York. The Crew has lost each of Lohse's last four starts -- and for now, manager Craig Counsell says he'll make his next one. But there's still talk that Lohse will go to the bullpen if he's not traded -- or perhaps be cut, as Milwaukee veterans Randy Wolf and Jeff Suppan were during their contract-year struggles.



Auburndale's Zimmermann Loses At Miami

(Miami, FL) -- For the first time in three years, Central Wisconsin native Jordan Zimmermann is not having an All-Star season with the Washington Nationals. The former U-W Stevens Point right-hander is now 8-and-6, after a 4-to-1 loss at Miami last night. Zimmermann goes six innings, giving up three runs on eight hits against a Marlins' team which gave him his only career no-hitter at the end of last season. Zimmermann was invited to the All-Star Game in both 2013-and-'14, but he sat out both due to injuries.



Eleven Thousand Attend Packer Stockholders Meet

(Green Bay, WI) -- Over 11-thousand green-and-gold owners are on hand for the Green Bay Packers' annual stockholders meeting at Lambeau Field. Perhaps the biggest news from yesterday's gathering is that the Packers will have a new retro look for their October 18th home game against San Diego. They'll wear blue-and-gold jerseys from 1937-through-'49 -- when the Packers won two league championships featuring Don Hutson, Tony Canadeo, and coach Curly Lambeau. They'll have full numbers, unlike Green Bay's previous third jersey from the 1929 championship team which had numbers in smaller circles on the front. Also at the meeting, Susan Finco becomes the first woman on the team's executive committee, and Thomas Olson is elected the new lead director and vice president.



Ex-Arrowhead QB To Start For South Dakota

(Vermillion, SD) -- Former Hartland Arrowhead High School quarterback Ryan Saeger will start for the University of South Dakota this fall. Coyotes' coach Joe Glenn says Saeger will replace senior Kevin Earl, who's out for the year with a lingering back injury. Saeger led South Dakota to its only two wins last year with 660 passing yards, three touchdowns, and three interceptions. He made four starts while Earl was out with a broken thumb.
