Brewers support Peralta in 6-3 win over Dodgers
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Adam Lind homered and doubled and the Milwaukee Brewers scored five runs in the first inning off Joe Wieland in a 6-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night.
Wily Peralta (1-4) pitched eight solid innings to win for the first time in six starts after earning 17 victories last season.
The big right-hander finally received got some support; he had been given just 6 runs to work with in his previous 5 starts.
Francisco Rodriguez pitched the ninth inning for his sixth save in as many chances. Milwaukee has won four of five, but still has the worst record in the majors at 9-19.
Wieland (0-1), recalled from the minor leagues earlier Wednesday, allowed two-run homers to Scooter Gennett and Lind in the first inning, and an RBI single to Martin Maldonado as Milwaukee took a 5-0 lead.
Joc Pederson hit two home runs for the Dodgers. Each of his last seven hits have been home runs and he has nine for the season.
Bob Uecker and the rest of the Brewers Broadcast crew were locked in their booth when the handle on the door broke during the game; a team staffer entered the booth through the window and let them out.
