Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Wily Peralta left Tuesday's start against Washington in the sixth inning with a left hamstring strain. Peralta, who hadn't allowed a run through five innings, left after getting Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper to bunt into an out to start the bottom of the sixth inning. "It tightened up on him," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "It wasn't like he felt something pull. Whether it is lack of fluid or whatever, hopefully it's just tightness. "I looked over at (Aramis Ramirez) and Rami said it looked like he was landing different. Maldy said the same thing." Peralta is the third pitcher on Milwaukee's staff to leave a game with an injured hamstring. Closer Jim Henderson and starter Marco Estrada both needed trips to the disabled list after suffering their hamstring injuries. Both Henderson and Estrada pulled their hamstring, but the Brewers won't know the extent of Peralta's injury until Wednesday. "I'm hoping this isn't a pull. It doesn't sound like it is. We're hoping in a couple of days he'll be alright," said Roenicke. "I think when he extended a little bit harder, landing on the stride, it didn't feel right." The timing of the hamstring strain is particularly frustrating for Peralta and the Brewers because the right-hander was putting together one of the best outings of his young career. Going toe-to-toe with Nationals ace right-hander Stephen Strasburg, Peralta allowed just three hits and had five strikeouts. "That was a great game for him," Roenicke said. "Great command on the fastball, great movement down. Getting ahead of batters, threw a couple of real nice sliders and threw a few nice change-ups." Braun update: Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun took a step forward Tuesday, as he took swings in the batting cage Tuesday in Washington. "It felt good," Roenicke said. "He swung, I don't know how many swings he took, but definitely better. That's encouraging. We're making progress with it. We're still not there, but we'll see tomorrow with it." Although progress was made Tuesday, Roenicke admitted it's looking like Braun will be out until after the All-Star break. "I think the way we're heading and the way it's looking, I would say that's a good possibility," Roenicke said before Tuesday's game. "Unless things change in a hurry, where he swings and the next day there's no pain, and he swings again and now we can accelerate that. But it doesn't look like it's going to be that way." Braun has been on the disabled list since June 14 with nerve irritation between his thumb and index finger. Follow Andrew Gruman on Twitter
