Recap: Milwaukee vs. Cincinnati

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Wily Peralta threw his first-career shutout as the Milwaukee Brewers blanked the Cincinnati Reds, 2-0, in the second of a three-game series at Miller Park.

Peralta (6-9) scattered three hits and four walks and struck out six to go the distance for the first time in his big league career. Peralta had never lasted more than seven innings coming into the game.

"Wily had outstanding command today. His slider was working well, and as the game went on he had some really good change-ups," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "As you watched him on the mound you could see his confidence grow, you could see it in his body language."

Logan Schafer provided the game's only offense with a two-run homer, his first of the season. Ryan Braun returned to the lineup after missing nearly a month with a hand injury and went 1-for-3.

Tony Cingrani (3-1) took his first loss of the season after giving up three hits, including Schafer's homer, over seven frames. Cingrani walked two and struck out 10 in the setback.

Martin Maldonado walked to open the fifth inning and Schafer followed with a homer to right-center field.

"Tony threw a really good game. He walked Maldonado and gave up Schafer's only home run. That's what happens when you're not playing well," Reds manager Dusty Baker said.

The Reds squandered an opportunity to score in the seventh inning. Derrick Robinson roped a line drive to left field. The ball skipped past left fielder Jeff Bianchi and rattled around in the corner before kicking out and rolling down the warning track. Robinson raced around third and broke for home. Bianchi hit Jean Segura with a relay throw and the All-Star shortstop delivered a strike to the plate to catch Robinson and preserve the shutout.

Peralta returned to the mound in the ninth inning to a standing ovation. The right-hander retired the first two hitters of the inning before walking Joey Votto. Brandon Phillips, though, grounded out to Segura to end the game.

Game Notes

Peralta threw a season-high 113 pitches ... Peralta tossed the Brewers first complete game since Yovani Gallardo went the distance April 5, 2011 against the Braves.
