The Brewers snapped a four game losing streak with a 5-1 win over Arizona on Sunday afternoon. Wily Peralta struck out 8 and gave up just one run and seven hits in seven innings to earn the victory. Logan Schafer homered and drove in a pair for the Crew. Milwaukee heads into the All-Star Break 38-56 record. That’s good for last place in the National League Central. That’s the third worst record in baseball with only Miami and Houston worse. The Brewers are off until Friday when they host Miami.
