While the streaking Milwaukee Brewers will try to sweep another home series against division rival Chicago, Wily Peralta is hoping a matchup with the Cubs will help him earn his first win of the season.
After a solid performance against Chicago earlier this month, the right-hander will try to duplicate that effort while leading the Brewers to a seventh straight win Sunday afternoon.
A 5-1 victory Saturday was Milwaukee's seventh in a row at Miller Park against the Cubs and 17th in the last 19 matchups there. The hot-hitting Jonathan Lucroy hit an early solo homer, and the Brewers (8-8) took advantage of three errors.
Milwaukee is the first team since the 1977 New York Yankees to reach the .500 mark in its 16th game after dropping eight of its first 10.
"We're making the most of some of the things that have happened the last couple of days," manager Ron Roenicke said. "We're playing better ball, and we're getting some breaks."
