Milwaukee shortstop Jean Segura has left the Brewers' game against the Rockies in the sixth inning, developing tightness in his right forearm two innings after he swung into a pitch that hit him in the same area.
Segura swung at an inside offering from Collin McHugh in the fourth inning Saturday night and went down in pain when the pitch hit him on the forearm. A Brewers' trainer rushed out of the dugout and the game was halted for several minutes while Segura's forearm was examined.
Cleared to resume his at-bat, Segura grounded out on the next pitch. He took the field defensively in the fifth before being taken out in the middle of sixth, ahead of the Rockies' turn at bat, when the team said he developed tightness in the right forearm.
He was replaced by Jeff Bianchi.

In what has turned into a lost season, the Milwaukee Brewers have lost their fair share of games in which they've played poorly.
Those are the losses that keep manager Ron Roenicke awake at night. Sure, losing is welcomed by nobody inside Milwaukee's clubhouse, but losses like Sunday's in Colorado are at least easier to swallow.

Wily Peralta was pitching so well in July it was easy to forget he was still a rookie.
The rookie struggles returned to the right-hander Friday night, as Peralta allowed five earned runs on seven hits and three walks in just 3 23 innings in Milwaukee's 8-3 loss in Colorado.
Colorado scored three unearned runs off Peralta, and the Rockies certainly didn't hit the ball hard...

People have though that Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo would be one of biggest names available at the trade deadline.
