Wily Peralta may have pitched with a heavy heart Wednesday night in New York as the Brewers beat the Mets 3-1 at Citi Field. Immediately after getting the win, working six and a third innings and allowing a run on four hits, Peralta departed for his home in the Dominican Republic. Manager Ron Roenicke would only say it was a personal situation but several players seemed to think it was a serious family issue that could have easily distracted the young pitcher. After allowing three of the first five batters to reach base, Peralta knuckled down to retire 16 of the last 18 Mets he faced. Peralta is expected to be back with the team for his next start Monday in Arizona. The offense delivered 11 hits on the night but could scratch across single runs in the third, fourth and fifth innings. Johnathan Lucroy continued his torrid stretch by going three for five with an RBI to raise his season average to .341. Carlos Gomez and Jean Segura also drove in a run. The bullpen did it's job again as Rob Wooten and Will Smith held down the fort until Francisco Rodriguez came to record his 20th save with a perfect ninth. Milwaukee (39-27) got help from Tampa Bay which defeated St. Louis 6-3 to stretch their division lead back to five games. Kyle Lohse will face Jonathan Niese in the series and road trip finale Thursday night. Pre-Game coverage begins at 5:35 PM on WTAQ.
