MILWAUKEE Milwaukee Brewers starter Freddy PeraltaIn the fourth inning, a loss of 8-2 to the Washington NationalsOn Sunday, shoulder tightness
Craig Counsell, Brewers Manager, stated that Peralta will have an MRI on Monday. He will then go to the injured roster.
Peralta said, “Hopefully it's not that big of a deal or crazy, but it’s part of our game.” “We'll watch and see what happens.”

Brewers catcher said, “I thought in he second inning he didn't have as much life on his fastball.” Omar Narvaez said. “In the third innings, I went out to check how he felt. … He said that he was feeling tight. I said to him, “It's not worth trying to be the hero this early in the season.”
The fourth inning was Washington's most productive and had six runs. It also tied the Brewers record for the most runs allowed in one inning. Peralta, 2021 All-Star, came into the game after allowing just one run in 12 2/3 innings of his previous two starts.
After dropping seven of their nine previous games, the Nationals had lost seven. They also had six runs in seven losses. They took an 8-0 lead on Sunday and won their final game to begin a seven-game homestand.
Thomas suggested that Thomas might be able to spark some ideas and win some victories over the next few week and get back into it.
Milwaukee didn’t retire anyone from the fourth until Nelson CruzThe eighth batter of that inning was thrown out after trying to make a double from a single down the right field line. All eight Nationals batters in the first inning got hits, breaking a Washington franchise record of consecutive plate appearances with at least one hit.
Thomas stated, “I think that when guys are on a roll they're throwing strikes.” “I think that we were aggressive on pitches at the middle of the plate. This was my game plan. It's a pretty good fastball. It is a bit faster than it looks. I just wanted to drive some runs and be aggressive with the fastball.”
The Brewers will begin a 10-day, 11-game trip to San Diego on Monday. Adrian Houser(3)-(4) will be the start time for Milwaukee.
